It looks like ATL doesn't have any dual bridges. Do they use a single bridge even for A380s?

Google maps shows no dual bridges at ATL. The image shows two 747s, both using and having only single bridges.


Gate F3 at the International Terminal has dual bridges.


Google maps is not always current, which is why it doesn't show up in this case

At my home airport of LAX, almost every gate at the Bradley (international) Terminal has dual jetbridges, and the gates on the west side of the concourse have three jetbridges - an upper level for A380 boarding.

What's interesting is that the US carriers - American, Delta and United - who arrive at the terminal almost *always* use only one jetbridge. The international carriers almost *always* have both jetbridges connected. Guessing it's a cost-saving measure from AA/DL/UA.
