Gate leasing is really tedious and unnecessary.
Instead of having to go through the gate lease menu, make it so that you pay a daily fee based on how many flights you have that day.
Of course, this would eliminate dedicated gates
This would really make it easier and faster to schedule flights.
DFW > JFK > DFW
1 daily flight (7 a week)
Weekly gate rental: $35,988.29 (JFK)
35988.29/7 is 5141.18 (rounded)
Weekly gate rental: $43,189.21
$43,189.21/7 = 6169.89 (rounded)
$6169.89 + $5141.18 = $11,311.07
So you would pay a daily fee of $11,311 embedded in a fee or something
