DUBAI (Reuters) – Dubai’s Emirates unveiled a provisional order for 40 Boeing <BA.N> 787-10 jetliners, worth $12.5 billion (9.48 billion pounds) at list prices, at the Dubai Airshow on Sunday. Emirates chairman, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum, said the carrier had chosen the latest version of Boeing’s mid-sized wide-body jet after comparing it with the Airbus <AIR.PA> A350. Deliveries will start in 2022, he added. Reuters earlier reported that Boeing was close to clinching a deal for around 40 of the 787-10 jets.
