I have noticed in the pics on that some Fokker F100 jets have been linked up to an aerobridge.

What are the technicalities {eg design of aerobridge etc} of coupling a F100 up to a 'bridge? How is the problem of the F100-incorporated airstair overcome?

a f100/f70 can be docked at an airbridge provided the cabin crew lowers the door (with stairs on the inside) first and then they have to lower the side bars (they form the rail were pax hold on to). After this the cabin crew also lowers a kind of hatch . When this is done, the jetway is to be positioned as normal. Also note that not all these f100/f70 have the incorporated airstairs. Some a/c have doors that open like for instance b737 or md80

You can also do this with the F28 as well. I have seen Horizon do it with their F28's at Oakland. If you don't raise the handrails on the stairs, you can easily move the bridge into place.

ROC has a long and proud history of F.28s (Empire Airlines and Piedmont) and F100s (US and AA) accessedd via jetbridge.
