748 Compatible For Upper Deck Boarding?

Sun Sep 02, 2012 3:40 pm

I checked past posts, no clear answer: Did Boeing redesign the 748 upper deck doors to be served by upper deck boarding bridges? One would think that it should now be an option (since it apparently wasn't at the earlier 74-types) now with the added upper deck capacity. In other words can LH throw the 748 onto the 380 gates and do dual-level boarding?

No. The doors are like gull wings, and swing up. Evacuation exits only.

I do not believe so. If I'm not mistaken, the doors still swing upwards and not outward like the other doors.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

They still swing upwards just like a 744.
