You know this is old news. Flight International reported this probably three weeks ago. Airbus is dangling very sweet deals in front of EVA, but it doesn't mean EVA is biting because Boeing isn't sitting still either.

There is not that big of an advantage in having four engines. Four engine aircraft have higher diversion rates than twin engine jets. Given EVA's route network, ETOPS requirements would present only a small penalty. I hope they stick with the 777s.
