re: two engines shut down while over alaska. If one one engine were to shutdown while in cruise, would the pilots prefer to shut down the reciprocal engine on the other wing in order to keep symetric thrust ? Would they then turn it back on during the landing phase to permit an "abort/turn around" or would the plane be light ebough by then to allow the 747 to run on 2 engines should it need to abort the landing at the last minute ?
