So are you saying single engine aircraft should never takeoff in the first place ?

What are the odds of losing both engines, from two independent causes, on the same flight ?

What are the odds you will screw up your first attempt at an approach that is unlike any other you have done before ?

One is highly unlikely, the other is fairly probable. In my airline, you will have a hard time justifying a rushed overweight
return on a perfectly healthy, working engine.
