I haven't argued the fuel burn at all. However, a 13% load increase is a LOT less than the "double" claimed earlier.

I'm not concerned with book figures or "could have" figures. I'm concerned with reality of the operation...

And, indeed, ETOPS qualification is a REAL concern. While the costs of the qualification will be recovered in the long run, they are significant at the start.
