2 things:

1. When am pushing back from the gate, I m unable to turn left or right. Is there a way to do that?

2. When parked at the gate what are the commands to call over grounds crew? (baggage, fuel, jetway, etc)

thanks

Under General.

Shift+P then 1 or 2 to turn tail right/left.

I'm having a problem with that too, with the 737, mine will not turn at all. And I have all the ground vehicles setting all the way to 100% but I know that probably has nothing to do with turning the plane.

I wouldn't hesitate to to install any of Rob Barendregt's gauges:

there's also this optional add-on

rcbgh50a.zip

both on this page: https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/2634/fsx-groundhandling-gauges-pushback-taxispeed-control-etc/

PS: The Harrier in my sig flies they way it is supposed to i.e. perfect VTOL courtesy of one of Rob's gauges 😎

To get the jetway, park with your nose gear at the end of the yellow line, then press Ctrl+J to call the jetway. By default, I believe it only works on the commercial jets (Boeing 747-400, Boeing 737-800, and the Airbus A321 and possibly the CRJ-700). You can get the baggage trucks to come by pressing Shift+E 2 (open the door (Shift+E), and quickly press 2). You can get the fuel truck by pressing Shift+F and you can get the pushback truck by pressing Shift+P. For the jetways you need to have "Advanced Animations" on. None of the other vehicles at the airport will interact with your airplane; they just drive around as AI.
