I've had to use portable stairs on many flights in LHR
. All were BA
B747's due to the lack available gates on Termainl 4. It was quite a walk down from there but I loved it. It gave you a great appreciation for the shere size of the majestic B747! I also got use the portable stairs off a BA
L-1011 in GLA
, fantastic, we even used the forward Right hand door which they never seem to do in the US. Does anywhere else use the right doors? Seems as though it's usual to only use the forward most LEFT doors?
