Azerbaijan Airlines has committed to buy "two large freighters", either Boeing 747-8Fs or Boeing 777Fs, as part of a deal with the US planemaker that saw a confirmed order for five B787-8 Dreamliner passenger jets with a total current list-price value of $1.9bn. 

The freighter commitment will be "finalised at a later time," said Boeing without adding any further details on the all-cargo part of mega-order signed at the Dubai Airshow 2017.
