Cargo Door Question

Tue Mar 01, 2011 12:55 pm

Random question: Does anyone know which carriers have the larger aft cargo 67"Hx 106"W (vs. baseline 67"X70") door on their 77's, that enables loading pallets? I know that BA, Egyptair, Air France and KLM, Emirates do and that AA and ANA do not.

There's only a 36" width difference between the large door and baseline door, so it's difficult to tell in photos. That said, I was wondering if anybody on here knew for sure whether any of the legacy carriers have it on their aircraft, and if anybody knows which other international carriers do as well...

Original UA does....called a pallet door as it enables you to use the big pallets in the aft cargo compartment. Knew that the first 777 AA got, from the DL order, were the container width door but thought their later ones had the bigger door.
