It is not in the strategic interest of the Emirates to cancel a Boeing order. You got it wrong. It is not in the strategic interest of boeing for Emirates to cancel 787 order. Emirates will go after the best deal available and if Airbus offers one, Emirates won't hesitate a bit to take over the one...Jump to post
To clarify, the 10 77W and 15 A320neos are not new orders, nor have they ordered 5 more A350s. Kuwait has/will convert 5 of their current A350 order (out of 10) to 8 A338s. KU’s future fleet will as of now consist of 10 77Ws (all delivered), 15 A320neos (previous order), 8 A338s (new conversion), a...Jump to post
Discussion thread here: https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1406195 8 frames total delivered at less than 1 per year is hardly huge but much needed for Airbus.

I'm guessing the slower deliveries this year are due to -1000 and -ULR certification, introduction of the new wing twist and winglets, and supply of engines? Next year should see a good ramp up.

Etihad's first A35K is still listed as MSN 290 as far as my info goes.

And so the delivery target for this year is 105, and since the program is expected to start generating a positive cash flow sometime this year, 120 frames for 2019 all generating a positive cash flow should be good news for Airbus.

So Boeing also had some more orders that were already booked. Plus some that are still a commitment / MoU. That evens it out with Airbus in a true duopoly style.

Despite the poor reporting, very common from the BBC these days, this is a marketing joint venture not a handout.
Engine choice will probably be announced with firming of 787 order. EK is likely tying the two engine deals together for maximum leverage.

For me, the question is one of current day reality over future promises.
