On an average Airbus continues to dominate the commercial air carrier segment of Europe,  as per the 2012 statistics. In the passenger space, Airbus tops the list followed by Boeing and Embraer. However, Boeing maintains a clear lead in the cargo space, over other aircraft manufactures.  Fresh purchase of A380 model of Airbus and 787 Dreamliner of Boeing by Emirates and Ethiad Airways is expected to boost the order books of both these manufactures. Boeing led the order book race in the current Dubai air show,when Dubai-based Emirates airline placed an order for 150 of Boeing's new 777 mini-jumbo crafts. Emirates has also ordered new 50 Airbus A380.  Airbus A380 is the largest passenger aircraft in the world, with a seating capacity of over 850 passengers per flight.
