Where is gate 43B @ DCA

I have a flight departing from DCA this afternoon from 43B and will be arriving into 27. When I click on the map of DCA in the AA app I see no gate 43B.....only 43 and 43C? Am I missing something?

Same door as 43. Either way, choose carefully between the airside shuttle bus and going landside to reclear security. If you have a tight connection, it can be safer just to go landside and reclear security (esp. if you have PreCheck or Clear). The airside shuttle should take 30 seconds, but it has to stop for aircraft activity... and there's always aircraft activity... so it can take 10-20 minutes on a bad day.

Very helpful, thank you. As of now we have a little over one hour connection. That should be enough time if we arrive on schedule to use the airside shuttle bus, right?

Yeah, totally. But if things look off, it's a 5-10 minute walk depending on your pace, so don't be afraid to jump ship and walk around.

Also the corner that has 41 & 43/B/C is generally a cluster.
