After 3 international trips since May I finally got to Arrive at the new "F" concouse in Atl!!! I still departed from the old "E", but this time "E" was full, so we got to deplane at the New Terminal.
Bottom line is I walked off the plane at 4:05 pm and was at my car by 4:45!! Got off the plane, down 3 escalators and you were in Immagration, baggage claim, lastly customs and you're out !!!
. Only downside was that the people on Connecting flights had to take the train back over to "E" and then on to the other concourses. Talked with a traveler in line and he told me that it took him at least 25-30 minutes to get to his gate on D. (when he had arrived in Atlanta the prior month.).
Great for local folks, but i think it adds another 30 minutes for the connecting travelers. Probably 1 1/2 hours would be required to get to your gate without having to run!!!
