I have also been informed by the same aeronautical expert that the possible flight track(s) for these 7 hours are over areas which would allow the plane to possibly land and refuel...then take off again. Given the extra fuel burn due to flying at lower altitudes, the range would have been less than typical for this plane...which would suggest that the last ping might have actually came from the plane when it was on the ground. No one has said what the initial fuel load was, but the Boeing 777-200 has around a 7700 mile range when fully-fueled.
