What will determine a increase from 180 mins to 240mins for ETOPS FLTS for
the 777. I assume this time extension would only be needed for flts over the
Pacific.

Will the increase in time be solely on the data collect from engine
reliability or will it be a collective input from airline flight crews and
A/C manufacturers and the FAA?

Thanks
