Boeing sees no more large ordering in Middle East

Boeing stated there would be “selective opportunities” for ordering by Middle East airlines, but the manufacturer does not anticipate large orders, as most airlines are carrying significant order backlogs (The National, 18-Oct-2010). Boeing and Emirates are working together to squeeze additional range from the B777-300ER, allowing the carrier to serve the West Coast US with the aircraft.
