interesting question

The real question is why do airlines put up with these delays?
The aircraft, the crew, and the passengers are all left "waiiting" for the airport to assign a gate.
Its not just in Asia, BTW, that gate waiting is rare, I know that in FRA, for example, the norm is to park the plane at a remote gate and bus passengers to the terminal. Ditto for Lisboa.
