same thing happens on pretty much every airline at LAX, for instance. i've also had it with DL at ATL and JFK, and UA at ORD and SFO. it's aggravating, but honestly I'd rather wait 15-20 minutes and arrive at a gate than have to use the air-stairs and a bus.
Actually I had to use the "bus gate" at SFO recently and it went amazingly well. Everyone was in the terminal in just slightly more time than it takes at a normal gate.
