    the meaning of gate

    Does the word 'gate' in airports refer to the door which you pass to enter the plane or does it refer to the place where you wait in before you get on the plane( it has seats and a counter)?

    Re: the meaning of gate

    It's both the actual door, and the immediate seating area and counter by that door.
