alot of times, a question or situation comes up here in tech/ops and ive come to realize that on top of the manufacturer's operation limitations or procedure, the airline may have their own, such as flap setting on a go around to minimum altitudes for varius things. it seems like each airline has their own operating procedures to some extent? why is that?

thanks everyone!

1) Standardization between various aircraft in the fleet.

2) A more conservative approach to operations.

3) There might be some maintenance savings to be realized by adopting a more conservative operating philosophy.

Specific procedures based on where they fly and the airports they fly into.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Not only airlines, corporate flight departments also have ops specs and Principle Ops Inspectors (POI) in the FAA here in the States.

All the above listed reasons are correct, but oddly enough, the largest airline in SE Asia (now) was a tad smaller years ago, and the largest fleet was the B707.
At that time, SQ issued ops manuals to their new crew, and these were...the Boeing manuals with a 'Singapore Airlines' sticker on the front.

Worked GOOD.
No problems whatsoever.

Several airlines operating the Lockheed TriStar did the same....Lockheed procedures exclusively.
Smart folks, in my opinion.
