Emirates the flag carrier of the U.A.E. and the best airline of the world is seriously considering the possibility of being the launch customer of the Boeing Sonic Cruiser, assuming Boeing can deliver on preliminary performance projection.

Sure, whatever....Emirates is flying too high....better stay 'in' the 'ozone'.
Just because they have gazillions of dollars, they are buying like crazy....do you think that they have so many passengers? Also, I think they are playing a little leasing game as well. Sonic Cruiser, sure why not. But I believe they should first see the test flight reports which I think they already have.

While many larger airlines are flying down, Emirates is flying very very high, recently they put a bigger order of new planes and soon will introduces new services to far destinations from Dubai. So if Emirates buy the Boeing Sonic Cruiser which would be the possible destination? Europe, North America or maybe South America.
