The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is to announce the review today, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details aren't yet public. The Dreamliner's design and manufacturing will be part of the evaluation, the person said.

Telephone and voice-mail messages seeking comment from the FAA weren't immediately returned.
