Emirates considering 787, A350 for next long-haul order

Emirates Airline is close to deciding whether to go with the Boeing Co. or Airbus Group when it orders its next batch of long-range airplanes, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

The airline’s president, Tim Clark told the newspaper that the Persian Gulf carrier is considering Boeing’s 787-9 and 787-10 Dreamliners and Airbus’ A350-900.

Clark also criticized the European airplane maker for not committing to upgrading its superjumbo A380. Emirates is by far the A380’s biggest customer. It’s ordered 140 and received 74 so far.
