3 hours isn't enough to leave the airport.
Find a way to get into the Delta or Continental lounges.

How can I do that? The highest ranking card I have is Starwood gold... How can I get in?


Is there anything else to do in that airport?

I once talked on my cell and managed to sneak in.....I think I was lucky though that only one person was at the desk and they were with someone else. I just acted like I belonged. I highly doubt it will work though, as when I did have elite status with lounge passes they asked me for it every time.

And that is a pretty boring airport.

The Atlanta hub is a HUGE airport. I've been there about 3 times or so usually flying Delta, and I can tell you that you could easily get lost for 3 hours roaming around that airport.

Now, what's kinda cool about it is these trains that move about within the terminals. You can have a jeuvenille moment and just ride the trains from one set of terminals to the other (its kinda like those kids who just want to go up and down the escalator over and over, only mildly more interesting). They have a decent amount of little shops and cafes to keep the average person busy for a while. Its not so boring in my opinion.

I once arived there an hour and a half before my flight. The secutirty check line was so long that I missed my flight.

They dont care that you have been waiting in line for over an hour and that your flight is leaving in 20 minutes.

A Delta one visit pass is $30, a Continental one-day pass is $50.
Or you can stand in front of a one of the lounges and wait for a friendly face to ask if they'll guest you in.

Do I buy that before? Or I can just walk in? Is there anything good in the delta one?

That's the walk-in price.
I don't usually frequent Delta lounges, but look in the lounge thread for ones that I've been to.
