Also at Long Beach, CA and Ontario, CA. No jetways...

Also out of the Aero (Boeing pub.) January issue:

Aircraft: B757-200 14F150Y

Entry/Exit		Enplane		Deplane
Door 1 (Front left): 	26.0min		12.5min
Door 2			26.0min		11.5min
Door 1&2		23.0min		09.0min
Door 1&2 (*)		12.0min		08.0min

(*) "Outside-in method": window seats first, then middle and last aile

To get total turn-around time you need to factor in luggage/cargo
operations, cabin cleaning, fueling and galley servicing.
