First thoughts:  Maintenance problem or aircraft failure? Those planes have a long way to go with only two engines.  Fortunately the pilot was not an ex-jeepney driver or he would have tried to g

Designed to be that way.  The thrust available on one engine on all twin jet airliners is sufficient to  safely get airborne after V1, even at max all up weight. Any competent pilot should be able to

although that is true in terms of the regulation, a B777 neo, indeed any of the variants of that aircraft,   can fly unrestricted by time, on one engine, provided of course that it has the fuel to do

I drove past the Lockerbie site where the jumbo blew up in the sky

It was 2 days after the incident  ,as you got closer to the town , the first thing that you noticed was the trees and bushes at an ever increasing angle 

About 150 meters from the road towards a sloping field, there were soldiers on their hands and knees sifting through the dirt ,the remains of the houses at the top of the slope had an apocalyptic look , it reminded me of a scene out of the movie terminator  this was the area where the fuel tank landed and exploded

My brother , a policeman was selected to go down as parr of the team , i wont go into details in case someone who knew someone killed reads this

So if your engine blows out and you cant reach an airfield  , kiss your butt goodbye

Or you could look at a "good" result instead of the extreme negative one

"In this incident a collision with a flock of geese at low altitude caused both engines of the plane to lose thrust. ... With the support of his crew and copilot he safely landed the plane on the Hudson River. The time between the loss of the engines and landing the plane was 208 seconds, just under four minutes"

There's a fascinating history topic related to this, for anyone interested in old airplanes.  In the 'Clipper' days of early air travel across water, they could only use flying boats because of the very real fear of not reaching the landing strip.  Juan Trippe of PanAm fame was the real visionary trailblazer, along with Howard Hughes after he acquired TWA.

A lot of people, even inside the terminal, said they heard a loud explosion.  Where do you think the aircraft was when that occurred?  Still on the runway?  At LAX, the aircraft take off over the ocean 99% of the time, and it the aircraft was already over the ocean, I don't see how a loud boom would be heard back inside the terminals.  They are fairly soundproof for obvious reasons.

I dont see that in the news story. It said people on the ground which could be anyone, airport staff etc.
