From a previous post [cant trace it] learnt that the panel opened at the RH wing root area is a Refuelling control panel.
The question is why is this panel left open.Is refuelling in progress

Very often the crew will open the panel so the refueller knows an uplift is required.

That seems like an odd way of calling the Refuelling crew.Rather than leaving panels open,Shut them till needed & Call the Refuelling cre via Telephone/Wireless RT.

That´s the way it´s done at Valencia also: the panel is left open if the plane has to be fueled the next morning before the first flight. The fuel truck drives around over the apron and contacts OPS to get figures. Usually works fine.

Anyone notice the odd placement of the nosegear & maingear chocks? What good are two chocks in front of the wheels, if there aren't any behind the wheels?! There are chocks on the main gear, but one is in front on aircraft right & one behind on aircraft left. Very odd placement for the chocks.

AWA PHX, the fuel control panel is opened & closed by the fuelers (Swissport). There are a few panels in that area, but it appears to be the fuel control panel. However, we don't have any A321's. Just A319 & A320's.

Thank You Derek! Good Luck with the LA Dodgers

Interesting observation on the Chocks.Ideally it should have been Nose gear chocked fore & Aft and Main gear [at least two] chocked fore & aft.
