The rules were ETOPS 180 after one year in service at ETOPS 120. FAA certified the 777 at 180 from day 1, not accepted by EASA. I note you have 30 years with Boeing. You are likely a lot more knowledgeable than I am, but maybe less objective?

And itís not of topic: Boeing would not be in the mess they are in if the FAA had done their job. I donít think it is fanciful to suggest that this was the first sign of rot in the FAA visible to an outside observer.
