First...I'm not sure that 'engine-related' really means the PW fans on the
UA777.  It might very well have to do with the aircraft electronics to the
engines in regards to ETOPS.  The 7777 seems to really be a flying Local
Area Network...I've seen the aircraft 'fixed' multiple times by a hard boot
i.e. pull all power off and start over.

As far as engines overall...isn't it AF with the GE90 that has actually had
the most major fail...the dual engine change this past summer out of Brazil?
