Someone recently reminded me that ETOPS doesn't really mean "Extended Twin Operations." It means "Engines Turn Or People Swim."

When Air New Zealand's 787s experienced problems with their RR1000s they had a really big re-scheduling of flights mess for Rolls-Royce did not have any replacement engines available while this maintenance work is being undertaken. Frankly speaking RR1000s seem to be a real lemmon of an engine, too manny mishaps.

I do not believe this. Are they saying that certain Trent 1000 engines are so unreliable that they cannot be flown in pairs? It appears then that it is okay to have one engine fail but not two. Why are these engines flying at all? Take them all out of service and fix the problem. Are these morons aware of the fact that a single engine failure and a dual engine failure on a dual engined aircraft are a potential disaster?

De-pairing is not the solution, it is a mitigation.
