Qantas uses 2 doors on 747s. Interestingly, the forward door is no
longer exclusive to the rich folks up front. Qantas sends  FG HIJ pax
through the first door and directs them to the starboard aisle, while
ABC DE pax take the second door and are directed in the port aisle.

This worked well at the end of the flight. But for loading, there is
still the bottlenecks because so many pax still block the aisle to stowe
their portable home in the overhead bin.
