I would like to know how to do this too. I was flying a United Airlines 747-400 and as I was taxing from my gate, I noticed that my cargo door was open!!!! I don't know what I did to get them open, but I couldn't get them closed. All I know how to do is open the passenger doors. Embarassed

OKAY....IF THIS ISN'T ALREADY KNOWN, PLEASE MAKE A STICKY!!!

(This isn't in the Key Commands, so you might want to write this down🙂

To open the cargo doors hit SHIFT+E to open main doors, then press the #2 key to open the cargo doors and ground teams!!!

However

This doesn't work on all aircrafts! I have downloaded the United Airlines 747-400 and the cargo doors worked!! I guess it is up to the creators of the aircrafts, i don't know. Here are some screen shots:

I hope that this helps some of you guys......

(edit: I had to change CTRL+E to SHIFT+E to open main doors)

Ctrl+J brings the jetway to your aircraft

Shift+E (then release) and press 2 straight after opens your cargo hold doors and automatically calls your baggage & catering truck to your aircraft.

Works with all default Jets for sure but not with all add-on aircraft as mentioned.

i still cant get that to work and does it even work on the crj 700 and the lear jet since they both have those fold out steps for the door

Yes this does work with the CRJ-700. Sorry, i should have said 'Commercial' default jets as i believe the Learjet (like many exec. jets) would store baggage etc. within the main cabin, so this feature does not apply to the Learjet.

But how do i accaully get it realistic, like starting at the gate instead of just randomly starting at the run way and all that. I saw on youtube that the lear 45 passneger doors open, but cant figure out how the hell t do it.

Taxi to the gate and save that as your default flight.
When ever you launch the sim it'll be whatever aircraft you saved at the gate, you can go into the toolbar at the top and change the aicraft.

For those who are getting the cargo doors to open, but not able to get the equipment and luggage trucks to come to the plane, here is what you do...

You MAKE SURE THE ENGINES ARE OFF!!! LOL.... the trucks will not pull behind a running THRUST engine! 🙂 Or else your baggage would be all over the airport.

Pull up to the gate, push Shift+E to open the main door... then CTRL+J to move the jetway into place... then push Shift+E then number 2 quickly and the cargo holds will open, then turn off the engines and they will move into place... of course, make sure you pulled up to a gate that has this equipment already waiting... if you pull to an empty gate, no one will come...

Also, you must make sure you Advance Animations are enabled to make this happen.

SHIFT + E opens passenger doors and if you use SHI|FT + |E then 2 the cargo doors open on aircarft that have them. |WHay I cant get is the flippijg Jetway! I park on the yellow line, shut everything down, open the doors and call for the Jetway CNTRL J. I have the customs set to advanced animation...but nothing. I park where the tower tells me, so I guess I am on the correct side to get the jetway

If you are using a addon aircraft, chances are that the aircraft will not come with that function incorporated into the file , especially if it is a FS 2004 aircraft.

Nope - using the type that came with FSX. I don't even SEE a jetway, and I've landed at Heathrow, LAX, the big ones....I have advanced animations on, and I've even set my options to MAX HIGH on everything (The frame rate goes in the tank, let me tell you) and still don't see a jetway. I have the Standard version, so is jetways only in the deluxe?
