Here's a suggestion for a quick fix.


In the Aircraft.cfg file, found in the PMDG - 777 folder under SimObjects, find the entry for whatever livery you use. For example I'll use British Airways. If you've installed the livery with the PMDG Ops Center then there will be an entry for the airline, titled something like "[fltsim.3] title=PMDG 777-36NER British Airways". Under that entry, you can manually add an airline parking code, which then causes the default FSX ATC to send you to the correct gate assignment upon landing. This only works if the airport scenery has airline gate assignments.


Under the line "atc_parking_types=..." enter in "atc_parking_codes=BAW" or the three letter code for whichever airline you're using. Again this only works on scenery with detailed AFCADs, which you can edit yourself but that's a totally different beast and you can consult other avsim forums for help.


DISCLAIMER: This "quick-fix" is altering the code that PMDG has created and thus changing the product. The PMDG staff advises against similar "hacks" or "tweaks" and it's not covered in their customer support. If I'm violating the terms and conditions by offering this advice, I'll remove this post. 


Good luck and happy contrails.
