Default Max display setup

For those of you flying the 737 max, how do you arrange the screens at your airline? At Alaska there is no specific requirement but it seems the engine instruments are displayed on the Capt as side and the larger NAV screen is on the FOs side. I’ve heard there are some airlines that want the PM to have one or the other, meaning the screens get switched from side to side depending on who is PF and who is PM. And do you expand the engine instruments or leave them in a compact form?

just curious.

Engine stack is on the Cptn’s side but I tend to think that it should be on the PF’s side so I always ask the FOs what they’d like. They inevitably say something to the extent of “whatever”, “I don’t care”, “doesn’t matter”.

Required to be on the Captain’s side for engine start…(?) but then you can put it wherever PF chooses while in flight.

Yep, been told by most CA’s “whatever you want.” I also try to display the hydraulic info for the parking check but usually forget. My biggest pet peeve with the displays is the disappearing flight number.

My biggest pet peeve is that it has the ability to display CPDLC and digital ATIS in the block below the flight number but our airline doesn't pay for it. :-(

True. Huge win. Now if they’d just turn it on on the -700s…
