777 Cargo Door Question

Sun Oct 03, 2004 11:37 am

Really simple, probably a little dumb, question: are the fore and aft cargo doors of the 777 on both sides of the aircraft? Thanks in advance

So they are only on the right side?

Take a look for yourself:

Wasted a good 20 minutes of my life doing just that before I asked.... I was looking to see if an airline has the option as to which side the door can be placed, if it's standard, or if both can be fitted....

Most airliners (including the 777) have the main cargo doors on the right hand side. This helps with standardization for airport design - passengers get on and off from the left, cargo from the right. That way the equipment doesn't get in the way of each other.
