Best way to start a380 engines?

Since the update is probably (hopefully) coming out today I was just wondering what would be the best way to start the a380 engines especially at IFATC airports which will probably be very busy this week so I don’t hold people up?

Start ENG 1 and straight after 2, once they’re stable, repeat the process for Engines 3 and 4 :)

You can taxi on 2 Engines though to conserve fuel

The start up sequence is usually:
#3, #4, #2, #1

Usually wheb the aircraft is pushed back and clear of the terminal

Your welcome!

You usually dont start simultaneously.
Engine 2 usually has the hydraulic stuff in it that’s why you usually start that one first.

It’s a nice list though

If you watch full flight videos from the flight deck on YouTube by JustPlanes and other similar channels, it seems they start engine 1, then engine 2, then 3 and 4 simultaneously.

FYI I think every company has their own ways on how to start

Yes, Lufthansa and Malaysia did as I described, but Etihad started all 4 individually
