KLAX Teminal 1 Gate 9 Pushback

In curiosity, how to aircrafts parked at Terminal 1 Gate 9 are pushed back irl?

By making 180 degrees turn after moving back a bit?
Or pushback all way to the main taxi area?
Or how?


All the way to the main taxiway. I have seen this many times.

I see thanks!

Based off of what @Skismd said, You would have to push backwards all the way to the main taixway.
It is kinda of like KSAN when you are in Terminal 2 with American or Alaska Airlines, Gates 23 and 25 for example. the ground crew would push all the way back to the main taxiway.

Actually Southwest often turns their planes around half way too. I think it depends on how comfortable the pushback driver is.


I see, thanks

Most the time all the way back, the use of an aircraft other than southwest triggers me
