By the way - pretty much every western aircraft if fitted with slides has them attached to the inside of the door. Two notable exceptions to this are the A321 (2nd and 3rd set of doors) and the upper deck doors on the A380 which have the slides in a compartment underneath the door, and is deployed through an opening in the fuselage

If some airlines prefer not to use airport air stairs due to costs and time, does the weight of the actual stairs onboard the aircraft add extra weight meaning additional fuel costs?
|Quoting Mcdu (Reply 3):|
to make sure that SWA can train their trolly dollys to do things one way only they retained this set up on the 737NG's. It is a shame that Boeing did not adopt more improvements in the NG's but SWA throughs a ton of weight around.
|Quoting WNCrew (Reply 13):|
What makes you think SWA is the reason Boeing didn't change the design? Do you have a credible source?
