Boeing's 787 Dreamliner to undergo U.S. regulatory review

NEW YORK, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Boeing Co’s 787 Dreamliner will undergo a comprehensive review of its critical systems by regulators, the U.S. Department of Transportation said Friday.

The review of the jet will include design, manufacture and assembly, after a series of problems in recent weeks, including a battery that caught fire on an empty 787 parked in Boston on Monday.

The agency said it plans to announce more details at a press conference Friday at 9:30 am ET (1430 GMT).
