No doubt there will be some bus ops but usually when a gate is vacated, the next departure is towed in from the layover. Saturday mornings at the moment there is something like 26 departures between 0615-1000, thats quite a lot with only 14 max airbridges, close to half those are widebodies from memory, mainly NZ at that time with LA, CZ and KE, then lots of VA, QF, JQ, NZ A320s, 737s.
1130-1500 is busy over summer most days with SQ, TG, MH, EK x3, CX, plus several NZ, QF, JQ, VA.
1630-1900 sees alot of arrivals including all the Chinese services, NZ heavies from SYD, MEL, BNE, NAN, RAR, LAN, and several narrowbodies. With 1800-2000 seeing alot of heavy departures, LAN, 3x EK, NZ to EZE, IAH, LAX, SFO, YVR plus again several narrowbodies, PR, NZ, QF, JQ, VA.
Yes they could do with more gates though last year.
Whos next? Who knows, AA have been building LAX for a while and AKL has been rumoured for a while and with SYD now set to start hopefully AKL is next. Air Asia X hopefully to. HU?
