Boeing announced that its 787-10 Dreamliner has been FAA certified for commercial service.

The 330-passenger jet, like the rest of the carbon-fiber Dreamliner line, emphasizes fuel efficiency. Boeing claims an approximate 25% per-seat improvement over the craft it will be replacing.

Delivery of the 787-10, which is built exclusively in Charleston, South Carolina, is planned for the first half of 2018. To date, Boeing reports 170 orders placed. Singapore Airlines, which ordered 49, will receive the first delivery.

    Boeing has a winner, I wonder what magic they could create if they do a completely new 797 or if the 777 had a complete redo. A composition 737? I don’t know how a plane that size could be even more popular, but it would be a way to stay ahead of the competition.
