Thanks for reminding us. Going up to 14 a month makes a lot more sense once Boeing knew they'd get a deal from Emirates. 2017 has been a good sales year for the 787.
Prior to this order, 83 per Wikipedia (not yet with Emirates order, again as Boeing made it sound like a conditional order that the SEC probably won't let them book as firm; I'm sure this order will happen, but probably import/export bank must confirm and a few other details.
There are currently 171 787-10 orders. I wonder how many EK 787s will be the 789 and how many the 787-10? I had hopes of firm orders to bring the 787-10 over 200 at the Dubai air show.
The deal as it stands right now is for 40 787-10s, so it will be over 200 once its firmed.
