- 777X Development Pace / Production Underway
- Emirates Not Deferring Any 777Xs, Wants Faster Deliveries
- A380 Fleet Retirement Program
Emirates was a key driver in getting the 777X program launched and it is no surprise the carrier will be the first to get the 777-9. Unlike the A380 deferrals that it has hit Airbus with, Emirates is only too keen to get its hands on as many 777-9s as possible.
Battling costs, overcapacity and ever-growing competition, Emirates has enough manoeuvrability and capability to combat the environment around it.
His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Group sees the 777Xs displacement of the ageing A380 as just the start of that process, which will also aim to deliver more robust financial rewards for the GCC’s biggest airline.
