I know the costs may vary widely, but how do I get a reasonable approximation at what an average airline pays in Gate Rental Fees at a reasonably large airport?
Is there a way to find out what American or United pay per gate in ORD, a primary hub for both of them? Or what Delta pays in ORD which is not a hub at all for Delta? Where is this information to be found?
How are gate fees assessed? Are they year long contracts? Sometimes a single gate appears to be shared among multiple airlines, how is that resolved?
Anyone with intimate knowledge of how gate rental fees are determined and assessed and is willing to give a brief description would be greatly appreicated.
