    Limited over water flights for 787

    Now that makes perfect sense as there is nowhere to land in the middle of the ocean when your airplane is on fire. Two limits being discussed in FAA. 1st is a two hour flight maximum and the other is a 5.5 hour maximum. Not going very far on either. Makes the fuel efficiency a moot point with no long haul service. Looks like the 70's to me in the short term. Once the airlines get some real flight time on the aircraft they can extend the Etops cert. Downward pressure for now and more cost to the company. Makes it hard to deliver an aircraft to Japan or other parts of the world. No delivery no checky.
