To fly from the US east coast to Asia, having the range to fly the great circle route will not suffice for twins because these routes are non ETOPS legal--there are no satisfactory landing sites within 180 minutes of a very large area over the Arctic. A B777 would have to take a route significantly longer than the great circle route to remain within 180 minutes of a satisfactory landing site.
