Last week a friend of mine has taken an Airbus A319 flight on Air
France Europe (formerly Air Inter) domestic route. Few minutes after
take off, the crew slowed down the engines power to idle for few
seconds. Then set it to normal climbing thrust level.
On the return flight on the same type (A319) there was the same
event. This time, before it happened, the captain announced it,
saying don't worry, "it is normal".

Has anybody any information about described Airbus A319 engine
behavior?
