Greetings. FS2crew opens the forward door...but many of my add on a/p put the jetway at the wing door. Can I switch which doors FS 2 crew opens?

Thanks.

Sorry, not possible to switch.  Why would a jetway go to a wing door?

 

Cheers,

I think he may be referring to the L2 door - the second main pax door, which on the 747-400 is in front of the leading edge of the wing.

 

This would actually be quite accurate... Most terminal gates that handle international flights have dual jetways - one of which is used only for departures, and the second only for arrivals. The second jetway, (typically the one farthest out), will lead arriving passengers to a different level in the terminal (usually the lower level), for processing through immigration and customs.

 

For that reason, at a given international gate, departing passengers will typically board through one specific aircraft door (L1 or L2), while arriving passengers will de-plane through the other.

Here at CYVR, when a 744 parks at a gate with 2 jetways, the one that connects to the L1 door is for first class and business class access. The jetway connected to L2 door is for premium economy and economy class.

 

If a 744 parks at a gate with just 1 jetway, the jetway connects to the L2 door.
