U.S. aviation agency clears Boeing's new Dreamliner

Jan 22 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has cleared Boeing Co's 787-10 Dreamliner for commercial use, the planemaker said on Monday.

The Boeing 787-10, which competes with Airbus SE's A350, is a stretched version of the earlier 787-9 Dreamliner and can carry 330 people, seven more than originally designed for.

Boeing said it has more than 170 orders for the fuel-efficient jetliner so far, from nine customers worldwide, and deliveries will start in first half of 2018. (Reporting by Sanjana Shivdas in Bengaluru; Editing by Savio D'Souza)
