DL/NW Etops Overview

Thu Feb 26, 2009 1:39 am

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...

Delta
757-200 (ex-AA only) [21 aircraft] - ETOPS-180
767-300 (Hawaii only) [4 aircraft] - ETOPS-180
767-300ER [57 aircraft] - ETOPS-180
767-400ER [21 aircraft] - ETOPS-180
777-200ER [8 aircraft] - ETOPS-180 (or is 207?)
777-200LR [2 aircraft] - ETOPS-180 (or is 207?)

Northwest
A330-200 [11 aircraft] - ETOPS-???
A330-300 [21 aircraft] - ETOPS-???
757-200 (Intl only) [16 aircraft] - [8x] ETOPS-90 and [8x] ETOPS-120

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.)

Both 180. Don't forget the 753s, which are also 180.

Thanks. I guess I didn't even realize the 753s were ETOPS maintained, since I thought they mainly do domestic flying.

Also, I realize I made a typo in my OP. The NW 752s are half -90 and half -180 (not 120 like I typed).

So unless the 777s are different then what I said, the entire ETOPS fleet is 180, except for 8 of the NW752s which are 90. Correct?

They are very common on the routes to Hawaii from the west coast.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

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.

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.
