On Thursday night, a Netherlands-bound Delta Air Lines flight made an emergency landing in Newfoundland after the aircraft experienced engine failure.

“The flight landed safely and customers have deplaned. Customers will continue to Amsterdam on another aircraft tomorrow. Delta is in contact with the customers, and we apologize to our customers for the delay. Safety is Delta’s top priority,” read a statement from Delta Air Lines.

    This is what makes me dubious about flying on a 787 from Santiago to Auckland or Melbourne! Across the Atlantic is much shorter & has many more alternative runways than across the southern limits of the Pacific.

    That’s why planes are ETOPS certified for specific flight times. We like to think ETOPS as Engine Turnaround Or Passengers Swim.
