LOL! The new building is the Maynard Jackson International terminal. The older crap dates back to 1980 when the airport had a massive expansion. A big overhaul is definitely overdue but considering that the new runway and international terminal cost $6 billion, it could be a while before that happens...

I dont think there is a terminal N. It goes A-E for domestic gates and T for international arrivals. Maybe the new terminal will be called N.

Varsity, Manuel's, other local restaurants seek airport locations

By Kelly Yamanouchi
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution



The Varsity, South City Kitchen, Ecco and Manuel's Tavern are among the local restaurants that are seeking locations at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport as part of the city's massive overhaul of its concessions.

Opening an airport location would be a first for all of those restaurants. Others seeking airport locations include the Park Tavern at Piedmont Park, Yeah! Burger, the Pecan, the Real Chow Baby, the Original El Taco and a proposed bar associated with Herschel Walker. But dozens of companies and many other restaurants are competing for contracts at the airport, so it's too soon to say who will win.

At the Varsity, president Gordon Muir said the downtown location gets customers who plan layovers in Atlanta so they can take MARTA to downtown, head to the Varsity for lunch and take a to-go box back to the airport.

"A lot of people have always said, Why aren't you in the airport?' " Muir said.

Manuel's Tavern owner Brian Maloof called the Atlanta airport "the venue to be in if you can get in." He said he put a priority on a Manuel's at the airport "that looks and feels like the Manuel's original."

The Varsity, like the Real Chow Baby, the Pecan, Yeah! Burger and Fifth Group's South City Kitchen, Ecco and the Original El Taco, is partnering with concessions giant HMSHost for concessions proposals at the airport. Each proposal includes multiple restaurants, often involving licensing agreements or other arrangements. The Fifth Group is also proposing a Georgia-themed gourmet market and wine bar for the airport called Abundance.

HMSHost spokeswoman Susan Goyette said the company looked for partners that are the city's iconic restaurants with the most appeal to the diverse array of passengers that go through the Atlanta airport. Hartsfield-Jackson has focused on bringing local flavor to the airport.

"You'll always have the comfort of name recognition with a national brand," Goyette said, "and when you weave in those great local restaurants, you have a combination that is really appealing to travelers."

If selected, many of the restaurants would open at the airport starting next year.

If you are flying into ATL from an international destination, you will be flying into Concourse E. Concourse E is the only concourse that handles immigration. Terminal South handles check-in solely for Delta and its partners. All other airlines use Terminal North. This is the same when it comes to baggage claims as well. The only arrivals and departures that take place in this building are from the attached Concourse T.

The South Gate Complex ain't coming anytime soon. The MHJIT (Concourse F) was suppose to be completed in 2006, if that says anything. The airport went through a full renovation in 2009.

The exterior of the CPTC (central passenger terminal complex) is slowly being replaced with the same material being used on the exterior of the new terminal. If you fly in or out of the airport, you should be able to spot the areas that have already been changed. Mainly the ends and some sections in the middle of a few concourses. They may keep it this way. (Which looks like shit.) Who knows.... This whole project has been plagued since its planning phases.

Delta opens renovated club at Hartsfield-Jackson
source: bizjournals

Delta Air Lines Inc.bizWatch has reopened a remodeled Delta Sky Club on Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's Concourse A.

Earlier this year, the carrier opened a spruced up 3,104-square-foot club at Hartsfield-Jackson near Gate B-10.

Delta said the renovated 16,000-square-foot club on Concourse A, near gate A17, is the busiest club in its system, with more than 55,000 visits monthly. To appease customer demand, conference rooms were removed and more seating and power sources were added.

Later this month, a brand new Delta Sky Club will open on Concourse D at Hartsfield-Jackson, putting at least one Delta Sky Club on every concourse in Delta's international gateway. The new 5,700-foot club is Delta's first on Concourse D and will have a bar and updated contemporary atmosphere.

Renovated clubs offer complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, snacks and Wi-Fi, wireless charging pads for smartphones, as well as personalized flight assistance, satellite TV and computer workstation access.

With the recent merger of Airtran and Southwest Airlines, Southwest will officially start service to Atlanta on February 12, with direct flights to Austin, Baltimore, Chicago-Midway, Denver, and Houston-Hobby.

Southwest Airlines: Atlanta could be biggest operation
By Kelly Yamanouchi
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Dallas -- Atlanta could grow into the largest operation in Southwest Airlines’ system nationwide after the carrier completes its proposed acquisition of AirTran Airways, a Southwest executive said Thursday.

Bob Jordan, Southwest’s executive vice president of strategy and planning, said he thinks Southwest could eventually have “well more than the 202” daily flights AirTran operates out of Atlanta now.

Dallas-based Southwest last month announced its deal to acquire Orlando-based AirTran, which has its largest hub in Atlanta.

“It could turn out to be that Atlanta is the largest city in the Southwest network in a reasonable amount of time,” Jordan said at a media conference.

Las Vegas is now Southwest’s biggest city, with 224 daily flights. But even if Southwest adds enough flights to make Atlanta its largest operation, it might still not be as big as AirTran was before cutbacks in 2008.

The two airlines cannot discuss routes, pricing and scheduling until the deal closes, so “it’s very hard to plan” what operations in Atlanta will look like for the combined company, Jordan said.

He also said he is “very comfortable about our ability to win over AirTran passengers.”

Some AirTran regulars have formed a campaign called AirTran SOS to “save our seats,” petitioning Southwest to maintain AirTran’s business class and reserved seats -- neither of which it offers.

Jeff Lamb, Southwest’s senior vice president of administration, noted that the airline has modified its service somewhat to offset those differences, with early boarding options to assure better seat selection.

“Some people may have tried us years ago and haven’t flown us in a while . . . the product is much different today,” he said.

Still, Southwest CEO Gary Kelly acknowledged at the conference, “We’ve long held out that we’re not all things to all people. . . . I fully expect that we’ll have customers who choose not to fly Southwest Airlines.”

Integrating employees and operations will also be a hurdle, Kelly said.

“We need to be humble, we need to listen, we need to learn from AirTran,” Kelly said. “We’re also not in a rescue situation with AirTran. They have a very solid operation.”

Separately, the flight attendants union at AirTran filed for mediation in their contract negotiations with management after talks broke down.
