I flew BA twice a week for years but now I'm flying BMI. Both on A322. I notice what seems to be quite different operating techniques between the two carriers, particularly on departure.
With BA it was quite customary to turn south almost immediately after the gear retraction was completed. I notice with BMI that the procedure is to climb straight out until first stage of flap retraction is reached. Only at that point is a turn initiated.
Is my observation plausible ? If so, would SOPs account for it or is merely a reflection of individual crew flying style ?
Thanks in advance.
