A rough estimate of their being around 39 gates per terminal at DFW would make me say that it is probably around 90 for AA

CO (including its codeshare pards and COeX)
@ EWR- 55 gates
@ IAH- 77 gates

DL (including Comair and regional affiliates)
@ ATL- 123 gates
@ CVG- 108 gates

AA (including American Eagle)
@ DFW- 86 gates
@ ORD- 58 gates
@ MIA- 46 gates

UA (including United Express)
@ IAD- 55 gates
@ ORD- 62 gates
@ LAX- 28 gates
@ SFO- 25 gates
@ DEN- 48 gates

US (including US Airways Express and Metrojet)
@ PHL- 72 gates
@ CLT - 56 gates
@ PIT - 76- gates

These numbers are all approximate, I counted the gates from the airport maps, so they may be one or two off, but they give you a good example.

CO has access to 48 gates at IAH Term C and D. (5 or 6 gates are shared with other carriers at D) At a guess I'd say CO Express has about 30-ish gates at Term B.I'm not sure at all about EWR, but think it has somewhat less.
