The standard "limit" for engine reliability pertaining to ETOPS operation is
0.02/1000 hours (Basic). The B777 figures are suggesting all engine
manufacturers are well below that requirement; more impressively the figures
quoted are for Basic+Non Basic. Perhaps it is time for the authorities to
impose tougher limits for future ETOPS capable aircraft?

The data provided in Marc's response did not include the higher rated thrust
engines. Is their reliability worse?

Does anyone have scheduled departure time reliability data for the engine
manufacturers?
