These virtual windows - which are used in some cruise ships - project the view from outside the aircraft using real-time camera technology.

When talking to FlightGlobal about the new competition back in 2014, Emirates Airline president Tim Clark described the 787-10 as a "10h-capable" aircraft, and indicated a requirement for a widebody able to serve medium-range sectors from Dubai where the focus was on good economics rather than ultimate payload/range performance. Clarkson presents the new first-class suites in Mercedes-Benz styling. The cabins feature leather seats that recline into flat beds and a there is a 32-inch LCD TV. In the other suites, binoculars are available for customers who want to explore the sky outside their windows.

The latest deal continues the close relationship between the two firms, with Emirates being the largest operator of Boeing's 777 fleet - something that will continue with Emirates set to be the first to receive the 777X in 2020.

"We are excited that Emirates has selected the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner to power its fleet expansion and future growth", Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Kevin McAllister said.

"We are delighted about the partnership with Emirates, which is one of the most well-known airlines in the world". Passengers can also enjoy the new virtual windows.

"Aside from our new fully enclosed private suites, Business Class features our latest fully-flat leather seats with personal minibars, Economy Class seats have adjustable full leather headrests, and the in-flight entertainment system has been upgraded for all cabin classes".

Sunday's Boeing deal comes after Emirates in 2014 canceled an agreement with Airbus for 70 long-range A350 jets after the plane maker chose to redesign parts of the airplane.

The collaboration also extends to include an exclusive S-Class Chauffeur-drive service, whereby passengers flying in the new First Class cabins can make use of new S-Class models for door-to-door transfer to and from Dubai airport from December 1, 2017.

Passengers would see more modern and airy cabins, Clark said.
