Okay, I know there's been plenty of ETOPS posts (trust me, I've been searching through them). I've gathered as much info as I could find and I'm trying to recap it all, but I want to make sure I've got it right, and fill in a few missing blanks. If I've got it all right, these aircraft are approved for the following ETOPS...
So unless anything needs to be corrected, the only things I need cleared up is if the 777s are 180 or 207, plus I'm not sure what the A330s are, since I know a lot of them do trans-Pacific and that only requires 90 in most cases, or 120. And 180 is needed for Hawaii. Any help on those few things would be great, thanks!
Edit: Also, is either airline certified for more then 180?
(And yes, I'm aware - an aircraft is approved, and the airline is certified, so please, we don't have to go over that again.)

Quoting Pilotboi (Thread starter): So unless anything needs to be corrected, the only things I need cleared up is if the 777s are 180 or 207,
All 777's are ETOPS-180. The FAA only grants ETOPS-207 on a route by route, as-needed basis. The last route to require (and allowed by FAA) ETOPS-207 flights were UA's LAX-AKL flights. Incidentally, it was on one of these flights that one of UA's 777's lost an engine at the ETOPS-207 equal-time-point and flew for 192 minutes on a single engine to their divert field of KOA.
Quoting Pilotboi (Reply 2): Also, I realize I made a typo in my OP. The NW 752s are half -90 and half -180 (not 120 like I typed).
90 minutes is not official ETOPS, rather it's "Extended Overwater". The NW 75A's are ETOPS-180, the NW 75X's are EOW-90.
