It is a huge airport with a nice International concourse. There is a train/tram that is easy to access along the path where you can choose to walk to your concourse. Nice selection of places to eat in the center of each concourse. There are plenty of bathrooms along the way that is kept clean. The gates have easy to find charging stations.

It is very easy to navigate within the airport, very good food options. Going through customs was very easy and I mean super quick. I took me all but 5 mins to go through the kiosk and hand them my form. I have TSA precheck and that was not an option to use as of yet. The line was long but they kept us moving and talking with us.

I travel thru Atlanta Hartsfield several times a year. It is the world’s busiest airport but it amazes me how well organized and efficient it is. I have traveled around the world and have been too many airports. Atlanta is by far the best. It may not be as glitzy as some airports in Asia or friendly as some of the airports in Midwest USA but it is very efficient and extremely functional.
