    So the engine could stop running? Because of a computer bug that is hard to find!

    330 minute ETOPS?

    What could go wrong!;)

    In all fairness, If it were FOUR of the same engines on a plane, what's to stop them from not running? :eek:

    That's nice let them keep flying long distance flights over the Pacific and the poles with an serious engine problem

    I have alway said we will have too have a few splash down before twin jet ETOPS is stopped!

    Boeing's justification "On the "SMALL CHANCE" the auto restart feature does not operate. Doesn't that run on software too? Sorry Boeing, I love your product but it's those "Small Chances" that contribute to deadly accidents. You wouldn't have tried this in 1969 trying to get the Boeing 747 certified would you?

    ...again, Boeing is lucky that the "regulator" didn't pull ETOPS all together. 10 to the minus 9th should have been used even for the basic over water engine failure certification. Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (lCA) should have been amended to reflect the new enginr reliability. Doesn't sound like the "highest level of safety" is being utilized in this situation. It sounds like a typical compromise between the "regulator" and manufacturer over the safety of the public! SAD!!

    "Drain the Swamp"!!
