Does anyone know what gates PA used in the midfield. I was on the people crusher...oops, I mean mover the other day and I heard on the their radio something about "it looks like its one of the old Pan Am gates". I figured I would go exploring next time I am at work.
I've flew twice via IAD during the late 80s using Pan Am. One time indeed was a hardstand using the people mover buses, however another time the LAX A310 flight definitely was parked at a gate using a jetway.

IIRC they were parked on the east end of what used to be the midfield hardstand where United's transatlantic flights now depart from, back when aircraft would parallel park and the mobile lounges would pull up to the aircraft.
