Can I ask the experts is differential thrust often used as part of a strong gusty crosswind landing procedure ?.

Not for landing but sometimes during early portion of the take off roll depending upon A/C type. Regards, Oldman

There is a procedure that is illustrated in some flight training handbooks, saying that during the approach phase you can add some power to the downwind engine, bringing the nose of the jet slightly into the wind (crab), and even though I have used that procedure a few times when I was flying light twins, I found it is a lot easier just to turn the nose into the wind with the flight controls. I have never seen anyone in a jet using this procedure, and it sure is not used for the landing phase. There you either use the Chinese lading method (One Wing Low), hehe, called the sideslip, or keep the plane in a crab( wings level and nose into the wind), and at the last moment prior to touchdown, kick it straight with the rudder and touchdown!
Hope that helps.
