Does anyone here have an opinion with regard to keeping reversers at idle while vacating the runway after landing when the aircraft is still decelerating (i.e. entering the taxiway). Any possible risks associated with doing this?
What is your airline SOP,?...rev thrust or braking?

Aside from all of the FOD risks noted above, this is an engine cycle that is counted for maintenance. Most airlines tend to want to reduce rev thrust cycles and time, to reduce maintenance cycles on the engines.

Brakes/replacement are far cheaper than engines.....
