Now I'd like to build a terminal, with 20 gates. I currently have 8 gates at TPA which the board requires me to get rid of. Then that will give me 12 additional gates. I'm probably going to use at least 3 or 4 of these right away, but the others will remain open until new planes are delivered.
Question 1: Do I lose the gates if I don't use them right away?
Question 2: If I can hold on to the gates without using them (and assuming they don't get taken away), do I pay the monthly charge?
Thanks for your help.

Final question, is it better to build a large terminal initially and grow into it, or build a smaller one and then expand it? Is it as costly to expand a terminal as to build a brand new one?

For example, if i build a 15 gate terminal, i would get a 30% discount and if i built a extension later, i would continue to pay that initial gate costs, even if a built a 35 gate extension.
Thus, building bigger initial may be incur a big costs, its worth it at the end.
Also, another aspect to terminals is determining what ur needs are. U really need to take into consideration along with how much ur willing to spend.

Agreed, but the downside to that is you have now released those gates to the competition! They now have the ability to invade your routes and reduce your profit, while as before they couldn't invade your routes unless they wanted to spend the money on building a terminal themselves. Which in turn releases gates that you can buy! What a vicious circle!

But at the end of the day, it comes down to the individual and what he wants. The best scenario would be releasing at little gates as possible...
