Connecting Between Terminals for Lounge Access

Connecting between terminals at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is simple as using the Plane Train. It operates inside the secure area, stopping at every concourse and terminal.

Passengers arriving on a domestic flight can easily travel to another concourse to access a lounge before an onward connection.

This won’t be necessary for passengers traveling on Delta Air Lines as it has a Delta Sky Club in every concourse, but it may be necessary for eligible passengers traveling on partner airlines or passengers flying American Airlines or United.

Best Credit Cards to Access Priority Pass Lounges

There are a variety of credit cards that include a Priority Pass membership, and each card has its own set of awesome perks and other benefits.

One of our favorite credit cards with Priority Pass lounge access is the Amex Platinum card. This card includes access to a variety of different lounge networks worldwide, with others including Airspace, Delta Sky Clubs (when flying Delta), and Lufthansa (when flying Lufthansa), amongst others.

Other Amex Platinum card benefits include 5x points earning on airfare purchased through the airline, a $200 airline incidental fee credit, access to the International Airline Program, and more. On top of this, the card earns Membership Rewards points that can be used for awesome redemptions like ANA first class.

Here’s a look at the card’s specifics:

Business owners may be interested in the Amex Business Platinum card. This card has similar benefits to the Amex Platinum card, including extensive lounge access. However, the card has a set of business-focused benefits like a 35% rebate on first and business class flights booked through Amex Travel and up to $200 Dell statement credit.

Here’s a closer look at the Amex Business Platinum card:

Alternatively, you may also consider Chase’s top-tier Chase Sapphire Reserve® card. While its lounge access isn’t quite as extensive as the Amex Platinum card’s lounge access, it does give you access to Priority Pass lounges. Other interesting features include an annual $300 travel statement credit and 3x points earning on travel and dining purchases.

Speaking of points, the Chase Sapphire Reserve card earns Ultimate Rewards points on all purchases. There are a ton of great ways to use Ultimate Rewards points, so make sure to check out our full guide to redeeming Ultimate Rewards points.

You can see more info on the card in the table below:

Final Thoughts

As a main hub for the airline, Delta dominates the lounge arena at ATL, which is handy for Delta passengers or passengers on eligible Delta partner flights.

Being able to use a lounge in your terminal or concourse can save time navigating the airport and allow more time to relax before your flight.

Unfortunately, recent changes to Delta Sky Club and Admirals Club memberships mean that passengers must hold a same-day boarding card for an eligible partner airline to gain access to the lounge. Existing lifetime members (no longer available for new registrations) may still access the lounges when traveling on any airline.
