ATL Layover

Mon Apr 29, 2013 4:17 pm

I have 3 hour layovers in ATL this Friday and Sunday. Just asking where would be the best areas to get something for lunch in ATL and which skyclub is the nicest one?

Also any great spotting areas inside the terminals? I was in ATL two years ago but didnt end up going to a lounge and got some mediocre sandwich somewhere. Looking to trying to enjoy my layover this time around.

Thanks.

In my opinion, ATL isnt built for spotters. At the end of the terminals though, you will get a good view of the runways.
Probably not possible, but the Renaissance Hotel (my fav) across the street offers a heck of a view!

E concourse has some nice areas for spotting international wide bodies.

The F concourse Skyclub is beautiful and spacious with a split level floorplan and affords views of the operations at Concourse E and the various taxiways that cross between the concourses.

One Flew South in Terminal E is a great restaurant.
Some see lines, others see between the lines.

F Concourse SC does have views of both the north and south complex as well as Concourse E. Rest of the SkyClubs for the most part just overlook the ramps. B25 has some views of the north complex, T6 has some of the south complex.

B10 and D don't have much of a view period.

Agreed. 2 years ago I booked a night there and booked the longest connections I could find. I had a record 800 photos in a 8-8pm day from my elevated balcony and of course no terminal glass between me and the action

Thanks everyone.
