I’ve experience quite a few modest delays upon arrival because of no available gate at LAX for Alaska. Even without expansion more gates at operationally challenged LAX and delay prone SFO are a good thing.
I've had the gate delay at LAX for many airlines. It's a huge problem at that airport. Yet another reason I choose BUR whenever possible.
Well there are gate delays and alley delays. Not always the same thing. Nonetheless, extra gates help.
I have waited for alley delays but the biggest issue for me has been gates occupied by aircraft. I've had to sit over an hour on a remote pad with engines shut down waiting before. This often happens if you arrive early. You get to soak up the early time (and more) sitting on a taxiway unable to pee.
