    Reuters on Boeing

    DUBAI/PARIS (Reuters) - Boeing looks set to dominate next week's Dubai Airshow with more than $100 billion of deals as it aims to launch its latest long-haul jet with close to 250 potential orders from five airlines, industry sources said. The U.S. planemaker is pressing ahead with the launch of its 777X mini-jumbo despite uncertainty over where it will be made, with workers at the existing 777 plant outside Seattle holding a ballot over a new employment contract on Wednesday. Bulging civil and military bank balances in the Gulf remain a magnet for Western aerospace executives as they seek to tap thriving demand for jetliners and combat aircraft that offer some respite from defense cuts at home. A widely expected potential order for as many as 150 of the new 777X passenger jets from Dubai flag carrier Emirates (EMIRA.UL) could come close to matching the $62 billion of deals amassed at the last Dubai show two years ago.
