777-9 Boarding Through Door 2L Not Possible?

Was just looking at some photos of the 779 and it occurred to me that the 2L/2R doors seem to be very close to the engines. Just like the A321 CEO can't use 2L to board because it's too close to the engine, will it be the same with the 779?

They don't have a monopoly, however they do have the largest amount of flights and passengers at EWR.
