Emirates increases demands for new 777

EMIRATES Airline has reissued its demands to Boeing to improve the range of the 777. Failing that then the airline wants Boeing to create a new longer-range version.Tim Clark, chief executive of Emirates, said: “We have been in dialogue with Boeing for almost four years about this, but recently we felt that the impetus from Boeing to improve the 777 extended range has slowed.“We continue to remind them that we want an improvement to the extended range…or a new aeroplane.”Clark said that the airline does not consider the 747-8 version as a practical intercontinental version any more, especially for its Dubai-San Francisco/Los Angeles route.Emirates operates four of the world’s longest non-stop flights: from Dubai to Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and São Paulo (Brazil).
