Stairs instead of jetways

Hi all 😎

Just wondering whether you are able to bring stairs to your aircraft if the ATC has not directed you to a particular jetway?

and also whether you are able to get a food truck because i have seen them driving around but haven't be able to call one over.😞

I know the UK2000 scenery brings food and luggage trucks to the aircraft but i don't know if FSX default does!

Hey Qantas, I remember you!

Here are some over-photoshopped early shots of mine.
I parked the trike next to an AI, their doors were open and a few minutes later the ramp and luggage truck came up.
I think the main secrets are open doors and patience.
As long as you are in a parking space the world will come to you.

You can call the jetway, the fuel truck and the baggage carriers.

All depends on your scenery settings.

Shift+F for fuel truck - You need to be parked at a gate.
Open cargo bay doors and the baggage carriers will come.

I don't think you can get those vehicles (stair trucks or food trucks) with the default FSX scenery. The other vehicles at the airport just drive around and make it seem more realistic.

You can get the baggage trucks by opening the doors (Shift-E) and quickly releasing Shift-E and then quickly press 2 so it is (Shift-E 2). You can also get the jetway to come if you park well enough (on the yellow line). You press Ctrl-J to get the jetway. I think it only works on the commercial jets (Boeing 747-400, Boeing 737-800, and the Airbus A321). You can get the fuel truck by pressing Shift-F. And you can get the pushback truck by pressing Shift-P. The pushback truck will only come if you are near the zone it will pushback in (near the yellow line) and only if there is one at the gate or parking spot. For the jetways you need to have "Advanced Animations" on.

Hope this helps

Just an add-on to Orion's help, not everyone knows that if you go shift P 1 your tail will swing to port. If you go shift P 2, your tail will swing to starboard. Also, opening doors on the Airbus is cool. Shift E opens main entrance, Shift E 2 opens baggage doors on starboard side and Shift E 3 opens the rest of the entrance doors. Cheers, Bruce.

I noticed that when I did not meet to bring the front wheel on the yellow line and parkes sloppy, the fuel truck will not come. It stands around nearby and does not move closer until you parked nicely.
Maybe a good idea for the city rules: if you don't park nice, no fuel.

No parallel parking please... and move your plane, you are double parked.

What everyone above me said is accurate.
