Boeing Sees Record Orders for Its Slick Folding-Wing Airliner

•, By Jason Paur
 The 777X was launched at the Dubai Air Show, and if there is any doubt which region of the world is currently in the captain’s seat of the airline industry, the orders in Dubai should provide an easy clue. In just the first few hours of the show opening on Sunday morning, three Middle East airlines placed orders and commitments for nearly 600 airplanes from Boeing and Airbus. The new 777X set a record for the launch of a wide-body airplane with 224 orders and commitments alone from Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, Dubai-based Emirates Airlines, and Qatar Airways. 

“We are proud to partner with each of these esteemed airlines to launch the 777X – the largest and most efficient twin-engine jetliner in the world,” Boeing’s head of commercial airplanes Ray Conner said in a statement.
