Boeing Co. netted about $100 billion in orders during the first day of the Dubai Airshow.
Its orders totaled more than twice the value of those of its European rival Airbus, which said it took 142 orders worth about $40 billion.
Here's some details on some of its largest orders:
— Dubai-based Emirates ordered 150 of Boeing's planned 777X aircraft in a deal worth $55.6 billion. The aircraft is a larger and more fuel-efficient model of the company's popular 777 wide-body.
— Etihad Airways ordered 56 wide-body aircraft with options and purchase rights for an additional 26. That deal is worth $25.2 billion at list prices and includes 30 of Boeing's 787-10 aircraft, along with 25 777X aircraft and one cargo plane.
— Qatar Airways ordered 50 777X aircraft in a deal the airline valued at $19 billion at list prices.
— Flydubai, a budget carrier, committed to buy up to 111 Boeing 737 aircraft.
