Dubai-based Emirates said it has finalized an order with Boeing for 150 777x aircraft.

The order was first announced at the 2013 Dubai Airshow last November, where the plane was launched.  At the time, Boeing CEO Jim McNealy said that the $100 billion in orders for the 777X made this “the largest aviation product launch” in history.

Emirates is the largest 777 operator in the world.

The deal includes 115 777-9Xs and 35 777-8Xs.  It also includes purchase rights for an additional 50 planes that, if exercised, would increase the value of the deal to approximately $75 billion at list price, Boeing said in a statement issued on Wednesday.
