Jetbridges automatically attach to 2L door for widebody and 757 aircraft

The first picture attached is an A330 spawned at a gate in JFK in its correct parking position and you can see it is at quite an awkward angle to attach to the 1L door. That’s because most widebody aircraft as well as the 757 attach to the 2L door like shown in the other 3 photos. Somehow I managed to get it to attach to the 2L door while in OGG and the IRL picture is how jetbridges are attached to the 757 IRL. The last picture is also how jetbridges attach at LHR in IF which is standard practice.

The feature I’m requesting is either to make it attach to the 2L door by default on all widebody aircraft plus the 757 for single jetbridge gates or have the ability to choose which door the jetbridge should attach to all in the efforts to increase realism as this is standard practice for ease of boarding (easier to manage first class pre-departure service without boarding economy passengers interfering). Obviously the 767-300 cannot do this because the 2L door is at the very back of the aircraft.

I would like to see this feature on IF. Here is a 757 in SEQM (sorry for the pic quality)

It would also be cool if we could choose which service doors to attach to instead of aircraft specific, but great idea.

Cause I rarely see the ground crew or gate agent put the jetway or air stairs to 1L on wide body’s.

Check “my votes” because you might’ve voted for something by mistake or inform the admins if it still doesn’t work.

And it’s coming! 24.2 will allow pilots to choose which door the jetbridge will connect with.

Has this been confirmed? I really hope so, this would add realism to IF
