Rejoicing in the land of Kwan
Hmmm. I didn't know about the percentage deduction for the sequences.

It's basically always better to do two 3Lo's (assuming you can do a 3Lo as the 2nd jump in combination) than to do 3F's, but if you want an "ideal" layout w/ 2 lutz and 2 flips, you would do something like,

Alternatively, you do you 2A + 1Lo + 3F and then 3Lz + 3T, the point is you need a 1Lo + 3F combination. But I've never seen a women do a 3F off a loop. The only guy I can think of is Plushenko (recall his 3A + 1Lo + 3F at Oly 2002).
Edit: Note though, this has basically no advantage over a more standard layout in terms of BV though.

Last summer Gracie Gold put out a couple Instagram videos practicing the 2A + 1Lo + 3F combination. Currently her 2A seems to have deteriorated to the point where it doesn't seem advisable to put any triple on the backend of it, but if she could get it back to its former quality, this would be a great combo for her to do.

A couple jump layouts last season repeating both Lutz and Flip:
Polina Edmunds: 3Lz+3T, 3F+1Lo+3S, 2A, 3F, 3Lz, 3Lo+2T, 2A. BV: 46.50
Courtney Hicks: 3F+3T, 3S, 2A, 3Lz+2T+2Lo, 3Lz, 3Lo+2A SEQ, 3F. BV: 46.73
