Boeing Co. (BA: Quote) is in talks with four airlines on orders for its redesigned 777X jetliner valued at as much as $87 billion ahead of next month's Dubai Airshow, the Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter said.

The 255 planes under discussion include as many as 100 to 150 for Dubai-based Emirates, about 50 for Qatar Airways Ltd. and as many as 30 for Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways, the report stated.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. is weighing as many as 25 of the aircraft in a transaction that probably would come before the Dubai event, the report added.

An order haul in Dubai for the 777X would be a boost for Boeing years ahead of the jet's commercial debut, now targeted for decade's end.
