Hi there,
Like a dumdum, I left my laptop and tablet in ATL at a security bin on Monday morning Jan 1st while transferring from International to Domestic terminals.

As soon as we were in the air, I filed claims with Delta and WWW.AATC.ORG which seems to be responsible for lost and found at the airport. Both places had immediate auto responses that I filed claims. I filed a couple more times with AATC and tried to call (404) 530-2100 x100 many times but just got the same auto response directing me to file a claim online.

Anything else I should try? Or does someone have experience retrieving an item from AATC to give me hope?

** Has anyone actually gotten anything back from AATC?? Seems like a black hole to me ... I could be wrong but my guess is that there can't be *that* many people leave PINK laptops in international security on Jan. 1 ?


<< (My paltry defense is that I don't usually travel with them and had just arrived from a 16.5 hr flight that started with a 1+ hr on plane delay... Still, as a frequent traveller, I should have known better.)

My amazing luck on this trip lead to a 2 hr ATL delay then sitting in the plane delayed for another 5 hrs and 15 minutes before our take off I realized I had left my electronics.

I asked the Delta flight attendant to help and she wasn't extremely helpful but said the number she called (she didn't say which one) wasn't answering.

She also said that if I left items in International security that they would go to Delta (seems wrong/strange?) and told me to go to to file a claim. >>

(FYI -Sorry! But I wrote too much so moved pertinent info to top but didn't change anything else so the order might seem jumbled)

Thanks in advance for reading and any help!
I am traveling north and have an electric coat with a lithium battery. I know I can’t check it because of the battery, but want to try to carry it on. In the event the TSA won’t allow it, I want to mail it to myself. Is the a post office in the airport? Not a drop box, but one I can mail a package from. A google produces a phone number for one, but it doesn’t work. Thanks.
As far as I know, there is no actual post office location at the airport.
Thanks! You are right as near as I can tell.
I arrive South Terminal - C concourse and have less than an hour to connect to A Concourse. Where do I find the train?
The train station for each concourse is underground at the middle of the concourse. It is well marked.
Thank you very much
I would like to personally assist my dad in the am arriving at 7:26 am from Albany ga. His connection departs at 9:52 to RI

How do I get a Security pass to access the gate ?
You can't.
Alternatively, buy the cheapest ticket you can find out of Atlanta on that day. Try looking at Spirit and Frontier flights.
Is there curbside parking for someone waiting to pickup a passenger?
Yes, all three curbfronts (North and South domestic and International) have passenger pickup areas.
Hi. On Oct. 26, 2017 at 10.30pm while I was boarding a Delta flight 84 to Paris when police detained me and prevented by boarding. They claimed to have intercepted my checked luggage, but they did not recover it, so it is surely in ATL airport. It never arrived in Paris. The claim number is 7006618521. Please advise, who do I contact to recover my bag? Thank you. Pierre GLASS.
You need to contact Delta. This is not the Atlanta airport or Delta's website.
Husband will be travelling to atlanta on his way to north carolina. where is the global entry office in he terminal? thanks
We have a Delta flight from Raleigh to Aruba with a connecting flight in Atlanta. The trip is in December and I don't yet have the terminal arrival/departure information. We have 51 minutes in Atlanta - will that be enough time to get to the international terminal?
You just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Plane Train connects all concourses inside security. You have enough time if the first flight is on-time.
We are going to Bermuda on Dec. 27th from Dallas via Atlanta. We only have 50 minutes to make our connection. What terminal will the flight from dfw arrive in, and which terminal do we go to for our flight to Bermuda?
Assuming both flights are on Delta you will just take the Plane Train from your arrival concourse to Concourse E or F (likely E) where your flight to Bermuda departs.
I will be returning from Mexico on Dec 21 and wondering how busy customs and immigration and the airport in general can be because of the Christmas holiday
