Maybe i didn't explain my question clear enough:
While doing the Checklist (before Taxi, Landing) he asks for Eng.-Start-Switches. (switch position is AUTO) I say "Continuous", The FO is fine with that (same the other way around when switch is on CONT and I say "Auto")
The point is not which is the correct setting, i could choose either setting for TO or Landing, but shouldn't setting and my statement match?
But that's not the actual issue:
I wanted to know why the FO is selecting CONT in the -700 and AUTO in the -800? is this on purpose?
The switch is the same in all Models and I think (from my research) it should be in the same setting on all models (CONT) during TO and Landing
I have the following suspicion:
1.) In the -800 the FO - for what ever reason - doesn't actually flip the Eng.-Start -Switches - even though he should/wants to (as its done in the other models)
2.) Since statement and switch position isn't checked for matching during the Checklist dialogue it results in this discrepancy....??!!
...am i right, or is there a deeper purpose behind the different switch positions i don't know about?
