I feel like this has to be a new feature because with the new buildings in the new 21.1 update, for me, it’s really hard to find a gate that fits me. (especially at busy airports) So, my idea is once you have your destination as your final way point, the game will automatically assign you a gate.
When you are spawning in a airport, on the map where you can choose your gate at your departure airport, it will be covered in red meaning either your plane is to large or the gate is already assigned.
