What are the procedures for one engine out? Say I am flying a 737 from UK into Germany somewhere how does this work? What do airlines do? Which divert etc? A planned one or??
So including the above example once explained how does it take this into consideration?:
"If at the takeoff airport meets the minimum IFR takeoff criteria but is below minimum landing criteria then you must declare a takeoff alternate that can be flown within one hour, one engine out performance since in these conditions you can not return to your takeoff airport"

If you lose an engine and continue the takeoff, you follow company procedures for an engine failure. Initial divert or alternate plans are decided prior to takeoff for problems shortly after takeoff. If the departure field weather is below single-engine approach/landing criteria, the flight must have a Departure Alternate declared and that is where the flight will attempt to divert to. OTOH, if you lose an engine "enroute" (i.e. not shortly after takeoff), then it is up to the pilot-in-command and the dispatcher (time permitting) to decide the most appropriate course of action. That is just one of the many things that a Captain is constantly evaluating throughout a flight.
