(Reuters) – Boeing Co  has still to complete flight tests on the newly certified 787-10 Dreamliner with General Electric Co  engines, but has finished tests with Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC  engines, a Boeing executive said on Tuesday.

The U.S. jet manufacturer on Monday said the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had certified the biggest model of the fuel-efficient Dreamliner for commercial use.

The first delivery, to Singapore Airlines Ltd  with Rolls-Royce engines, is due in the first half of the year and will be used on mid-length routes in the Asia Pacific region. United Airlines  is expected to accept the first 787-10 with GE engines in the second half of the year.
