Is the tiller on just the Captain's side or on the F/O's side

It depends on the airline, Condor and Lufthansa only have the tillers just on the captains side. On A320 family aircraft they have them on both sides.

I don't think that is an option on the B757/B767.
It should only be available on the Captains side.

The B777 has a tiller on both Capt and FOs side.

Dual tillers are an option on 757's and 767's. We removed the F/O's tillers on our ex ATA/Singapore 757's and Gulf Air 767's.

I don't want to start a new thread, I'll just ask here: Why is it that the FOs tiller is offered as an option?

Some airlines have a policy that only the captain can taxi, so the FO's tiller is not installed to cut down on cost and maintenance.

Thanks

Never thought of an airline not wanting their FOs taxiing!
