My question is, aren't the engines started from the APU? I've asked the pilot and didn't have a 'good' or concrete answer..
|Quoting 4tet (Reply 2):|
So we are flying without APU? What if an engine or booth have to be restarted?
|Quoting wilco737 (Reply 3):|
the APU air can be fine, only the electric seems to be inoperative. Inflight you don't need the APU to start the engine. As long one engine is running you can do a so called crossbleed start and start the other.

Quoting Starlionblue (Reply 4):
On many (most?) types the APU can be inoperative and you can still go.
Never said anything else If the APU is inop then you get air and electric from the ground.
