On another old airplane, the 727, we have the PF
push the throttles up to 1.4 to stabilize then get it close to Takeoff EPR then call "set max/reduced thrust" then the PNF sets it. At some companies the FE
does the final setting. After takeoff during climb out the FE
sometimes sets climb thrust when asked for, but normally he is kinda busy and the PNF will get it. It works the same way in the 747, it depends on the operator. We do it our way because we don't want the FE
leaning forward during this phase when he could be watching for any abnormalities on the roll.
