I came across this picture and was interested to see what look like mobile lounges at ATL. What gates/airlines use mobile lounges at ATL? Thanks!

The mobile lounges are not used on a regular basis by scheduled flights. They are used when there are no international gates available or when a flight has to be deplaned in a remote location due to security issues.

They are used whenever an a/c has to be deplaned on the taxiways in emergency situations, as ATL does not have any remote stands like @ JFK and IAD that use them. I've only seen them used a handful of times over the last 5 years.

As stated, they are only parked by E Concourse in case of an airplane having to be parked in a remote location, or in the event of the ATL subway train that moves between the terminals.

With the way they are currently parked, if you ever fly out of E-35, you will notice that upon pushback, the plane will then be pulled up a little towards the turn onto the taxiways. The reason for this is if a plane was unhooked from the towbar immediately after pushback, the jetblast could severely damage the movers. For some reason, ATL cannot find a better place to park them. All that open space, no place to put them.
