Amid a $95 billion sale of Boeing 777s announced at the Dubai Airshow this week—the biggest combined order in the manufacturer's history—questions are being asked about where the airliner will be built.
Speaking to CNBC at the show, Boeing International President Shephard Hill said the company would build the 777 "where it makes most sense."
Boeing announced orders for 150 of the planes from Emirates, 50 from Qatar Airways and 25 from Etihad Airways. German carrier Lufthansa has ordered 34. What received less attention at the show is that Boeing also signed a new deal with the aerospace unit of Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala to supply some $2.5 billion in advanced composites and machine metals for the craft.
