Reply To: Why aircarft doors always on left?

Not sure why on the left specifically, but I know they are to one side of the aircraft so as to free the opposite side for 1. catering and 2. handicap lift vehicles (as mentioned abive) but also 3. cargo doors.. to allow for the cargo doors to be fully opened and cargo loaded/unloaded without interference to the passenger side of boarding the aircraft. It pretty much helps for a quick turn around.
