First, you cannot pick the gate , ATC will assign you a gate to go to. IF, IF....that gate has a jetway, and it is on the port (left) side of the aircraft, and you open the door (SHIFT +E) and then call the jetway (CNTL+J) it should come. To figure out which line - turn on the taxi way in the ATC window - cant remember exactly what its called, but you should get yellow dotted lines directing you to the propoer gate.

I'm assuming all of this is AFTER you land. SO why Gate A-10 at JFK only?

Just in case you dont read your mail...

Why you need the jetway to come to the airplane at the BEGINNING of the flight I dont know. The only thing I can think is you have your engines running at the gate. The jetway WILL NOT come to the airpane with engines running. And yo need to have the door open. Also make sure you are at a LARGE gate and not at general parking - not a small or medium if your in a 47.

I've had the jetway come to 737-800 with my engines going and door closed. Thats how it starts for me when I choose the aircraft from free flight.
