I'm thinking ORD has the most, just a hunch...if the full expansion goes through (the one including the two new terminals), ORD will have well over 200 gates. Then again, one mustn't forget that UA likes to park 3 RJs at one gate.

It didn't have the most gates. but it SEEMED like it had the most gates.
Probably not many of you remember the terminal at MKC.
It was built in a straight line.
Gate 2 was what seemed like 2 miles away from gate 54.
If you remember the movie "Airplane"...when the airplane has finally come in for an emergency landing....and the person on the PA system is broadcasting "TransAmerican Flight , now arriving gate 34...35....36.... (as the plane careens down the runway).....

I indeed DO remember the terminal at Kansas City downtown (MKC). Wasn't that a masterpiece of 1930's/40's design! I used to fly in on a CO 707 and connect to a BN BAC-111 to SHV many times. It was quite a walk from one part of the terminal to another. They didn't even have piers, the gates were right next to the ticket counters.
I am glad that at least they didn't tear the building down. Maybe in the future it could be restored.

T5 will bring another 50 or so gates to LHR, some of which are coming online already in use for remote parking. That will take LHR to somewhere between 180 and 200. Infact the gate numbering goes well beyond that due to all T1 gates being 1**, T2 2** etc.
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned forever skyward

SIN has way more gates than BKK. I am not sure of the exact numbers, but from being in each, I am nearly 100% certain that SIN has more gates. I am assuming by gates that you mean jetway gates....or do we want to include remote parking stands too? I still think that SIN has more with remote parking stands.
Not sure what FRA has, but unless you count the remote parking stands, it is way below some of the other airports listed here. My three guesses would be: ORD or ATL. I would also consider LHR upon completion of T5.
Here is another related topic. What airport has the most gates per runways?

At the moment LHR has an total of 180 gates, not including remotes stands:
However, when T5 arrives, there will be an extra 50 or so gates bringing the total number to around 230, I'm sure LHR will have the most number of jetbridge gates and possibly even the most gates at all.
Although, I'm sure you'd be able to fit a lot more gates in at Incheon and Denver!

just a small correction, T4 only has 22 gates with jetways. Gates 15/16 are actually just one jetway, but the stand position (415/416) is different depending on aircraft size and hence the double numbering. Also gates 1A and 1B are used to as coaching departures for the remote stands.
