744/340 double eng failure


After I read about the BA 744 that continued to destination on 3 engines I came up with a few questions. Can someone tell me what would happend if they had to shut down one more engine. Would the aircraft be able to fly on the remaining 2 engines and perform a normal approach/landing? I could imagine an approach with a lower flap setting to create less drag or what...? Or would it even fly

My second question is what a 4 engine aircraft is capable of in case of double engine failure after v1? I know a twin can continue on 1 engine but it is hard to believe an A340-2/300 at MTOW actually lifting off on 2 engines. I cannot find any info on the reguations concerning that scenario.

I hope you can answer my question
