Here's a question to all the Brazilian experts here on the forum.
I understand that GIG has two "rotundas", one is terminal 1 and one is terminal 2. On Wikipedia I also see that there are terminals 1A, 1B, 1C and 2A and 2B. Do these "terminals" only refer to different check-in areas, or are there specific gates attached to these sub-terminals? In other words, do all the airlines that use - for example - Terminal 1A park next to each other, then the airlines using 1B park next to each other, and so on? Or are gates assigned only according to terminal 1 vs. terminal 2, but independent of whether it's A, B or C?
If it's specific gates per sub-terminal, which gates/stands belong to which sub-terminal? Are there any airlines at GIG that never use jetbridges but always open stands?
Now a similar question regarding SDU airport: are gates assigned randomly or is there a pattern which airline uses which gates at SDU?
