Very rare. Most right side doors are smaller the the doors on the left side as they are used for servicing only
|Quoting PennStation (Reply 7):|
TWA had at least one gate at JFK with a jetway on the right side of the aircraft.

Are you sure about the A320? I fly on A319s as cabin crew and the L and R doors all look the same size...
|Quoting FlyingColours (Reply 14):|
I can't remember now (since I've not flown since the end of October - damned seasonal contracts), but I think the R doors are slightly smaller, but I guess you would fly on that type more than me I would only get one A320 trip a month with about 13 757 trips

On our B737s & B757s during the Rainy season.We use the RH Doors due to Rain water rushing in from the Left side.All Airlines use this procedure.

1R on the 737-400
|Quoting FlyingColours (Reply 19):|
I admit, those Airbus doors are great, but they also seem to make new crew nervous (since both the arming lever and door open lever move upward to disarm...).
|Quoting WexCan (Reply 21):|
Can understand that, but surely new crew should have a bit of sense to work out the arming lever is the small one and the opening lever is the big one? Or that the arming lever is (usually) yellow and the opening lever is (usually) orange.

(the little bus really creaks and everything)
|Quoting WexCan (Reply 23):|
remember my first flight as A319 crew - I'm by no means a nervous flyer but it would have been nice if they told us the doors creaked so much. They did tell us about the "dog barking" sound pre-pushback though which was nice of them - I'd have been on the phone to the FD asap about a poor dog barking otherwise

Not her ein the US they don't
|Quoting WNCrew (Reply 20):|
You are correct, 1R on ALL 737's is hard to close due to the curvature of the fuselage. I almost need to get a "running start" to close the door....I hate when it's left open.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 27):|
How would the Shape differ on the B737,its just the Height.
|Quoting FlyingColours (Reply 11):|
There is a shot of some SAA 747s with steps on the RHS taken on a refulling stop somewhere on the Database.

|Quoting WNCrew (Reply 28):|
The FWD doors of the 737, contrary to what it may seem, do NOT sit exactly across from each other. The R1 door sits further up than the L1 door and is also a little shorter. Because it does sit up further it plays against the curvature of the fuselage when trying to open and close it. It's VERY difficult
