A cousin of mine was flying Sea-Tokyo on a NW 747 on Monday when the captain shut down two engines near Alaska and returned to Seattle. I guess this isn't much of a deal since nothing appeared in the news. When a 747 is flying along on 2 engines, what happens to speed, altitude and total fuel consumption? I am guessing speed, altitude decrease and also possibly total fuel consumption since only 2 engines are running. Vangal.
