Sunday, 12 November 2017 06:45 AM EST

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The Latest on the Dubai Air Show (all times local):

2:45 p.m.

Azerbaijan Airlines says it will buy five Boeing 787-8s and two other freighter aircraft from the Chicago-based manufacturer, a deal worth an estimated $1.1 billion.

The airline made the announcement Sunday at the opening day of the biennial Dubai Air Show.

The two companies did not offer terms for the deal, though five 787-8s at list price have a value of over $1.1 billion. A landing gear replacement deal also was included, further boosting the price.

However, airlines and manufacturers typically negotiate discounts on such deals.

1:30 p.m.

Long-haul carrier Emirates says it will buy 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners in a deal worth some $15.1 billion.

The airline made the announcement Sunday at the start of the biennial Dubai Air Show.

The announcement came after a several hours in delays amid rumors about a possible Airbus sale.

10 a.m.

Emirates, the Middle East's largest air carrier, has unveiled new, state-of-the-art, first class private suites.

In an industry first, passenger suites in the middle aisle without windows will be fitted with "virtual windows" relaying the sky outside via fiber optic cameras on the plane. There's also a video call feature in the suites that connects passengers to the cabin crew, as well as temperature control and various mood lighting settings.

Emirates President Tim Clark unveiled the cabin on Sunday at the start of the biennial Dubai Airshow. Clark declined to say how much a ticket in the 40 square-foot (3.7-square-meter) private suite will cost.

The private suites will be available on the airline's Boeing 777.
