Air Mauritius wins the award though for the longest ETOPS segment, 175
minutes from the equal time point, on their segment from mauritius to
perth.

There is an enroute alternate, the Turks and caicos Islands (I think),
which results in an 886NM 2  hour radius of action, but when the WX is
good then MK can plan 3 HRs, which I think was 1330NM

I have one of the flight plans for this segment from their Chief Pilot for
B767-300s from back in 1992.
