    pull up the ladder?

    What do they do with the airplane ladder (I need the word which is most commonly used to describe the process of moving the ladder to the entrance to the airplane when the plane lands (and the same before a plane takes off))
    Do they
    1) ... pull the ladder up/off the entrance door of the airplane
    2) ... put the ladder up/off the entrance door of the airplane
    3) ... bring the ladder up/off the entrance door of the airplane
    4) .... move the ladder up/off the entrance door of the airplane


    Is there a better word for "entrance door"?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    It's not a ladder but a set of 'boarding stairs'. [click]

    The stairs are wheeled up to the door of the plane.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
