While Emirates and Qatar placed launch orders for the Boeing 777X at the 2013 Dubai Air Show, another major sales campaign likely will be decided in 2015, in time for the next air show in Dubai starting on 8/Nov/2015.
Emirates is looking at another large order for the Airbus A350 or the Boeing 787 for medium- to long-haul routes, including to destinations in Asia, Europe and Africa.

The campaign comes after Emirates canceled an earlier order for 70 A350s in 2014, as it was no longer happy with the type’s revised performance parameters.
