May 6, 2013 - Atlanta, Ga: The International Terminal is shown with the main control tower in the background Monday morning in Atlanta, Ga., May 6, 2013. A year after Hartsfield-Jackson's $1.4 billion international terminal opened, there are still quirks that irk some travelers. The new terminal and Concourse F finally has its full array of restaurants, but it still is lacking some planned amenities. Among the changes that travelers are less enthused about are the lack of a MARTA stop and the long walk from arriving international flights on Concourse E to baggage claim.
