Minimum number of strips to sit in that seat?

Which side of the airplane to pull up to a jetway?

I like Mase's answer...

I'll guess that it is for setting the seat position?

Thanks, but aren't jumpseat rides always free? LOL

I jumpseated to work today on Southwest. The ops agent (the one who scans your boarding pass) asked me to help him out with the wheelchair passengers on our delayed flight. First time I was asked to work for my free ride!

And of course, your customer service instincts immediately kicked in and you wheeled the guy down the jetway with vigor <G>.

Southwest trains their people right. I couldn't imagine one of my folks asking another airline's pilot jump-seater to assist with a wheelchair.
