Just for some flavor, here's a snippet of a recent conversation between a couple of LAX controllers, inspired by the arrival of this particular airplane (LC = Local Controller; LA = Local Assist):
LC: Hmm, both [gates] 41 and 48B are occupied; I wonder where they're parking
LA: Maybe 43x?
LC: I thought they couldn't put a B777 on that one if there was one on 41
LA: Yeah they can - but only if 45 is unoccupied
