My guess is that the plane didnít sit at G94 or Gate 89 between the departures but most likely was towed over to Super Bay before being towed back over to Gate 89. Super Bay is the area to the right of 28R where you often see a bunch of UA heavies parked.

Both gates areas are connected airside and not more of a walk then between concourses in EWR or ORD or IAH or ....

Only arrivals require special handling of passengers.
some Air Canada planes also plug up the international terminal and they are small planes?

Looks like you won't have to worry about this any more.
YYJ flights seem to be gone as of early January.

I see! Now I know why I often see some UA birds hanging out there
