No. The adequate security was there with Richard Jewell, who saved countless lives.

It's beyond obvious at this point that you hate Atlanta, so your credibility on this subject just evaporated in my opinion.

And you're blinded homerism has ruined your credibility as well.

Everyone should just agree that Atlanta is the best city in the world and then slowly back away...

Name the U.S cities that have nonstop flights to these cities. There are very few, particularly on the East Coast outside of NY/Newark. And Miami isn't among them. ATL has flights to Tokyo & Seoul daily, Seoul being the A380.

You came off rude when I used SFO as an example so it's obviously you that has some jealous complex. I can understand why. Must be kind of boring plane spotting in Atlanta seeing Delta birds all day with little else. I prefer variety and not be forced on one dominant carrier for my overseas trips. To each their own I guess.
No, again. You came out rude right off the bat with snarky comments minimalizing Atlanta. But thanks again for playing.

As the known haters pile on...

The amount of vitriol directed towards this place never ceases to amaze me.

Hatred of a place and everything related to it is not normal. It's quite sad and ignorant, actually.

What's really laughable is that the much larger and more prosperous Bay Area doesn't enjoy the nonstop destinations offered in the Caribbean, Central and South America that Atlanta takes for granted. Talk about pathetic.

Enjoy your United hub. Arguably the worst Airline of the surviving legacies, at constant war with its own employees. And it shows.
SFO is very well connected to most of North America, Europe, Asia and Australia/New Zealand. Geographically, SFO is very far from the deep South America cities like Rio, Sao Paulo, Santiago and Buenos Aires. It's a lot easier for United to route that traffic via their large Houston hub. SFO-Sao Paulo is roughly 1800 miles longer than ATL-Sao Paulo.

If you're talking about Beijing, Tokyo and Hong Kong, Boston has year round non-stop flights to all 3, plus Shanghai coming online very soon.

I'm aware of all of this TAM88. That's why we have these flights to Latin America that SFO doesn't. It's also why we have service to Europe that they don't have.

I know. That's almost it on the East Coast other than NY/Newark. DC has a small number of flights. Boston has gained a very impressive array of Asian flights recently, largely due to the 787. It also is not 'owned' by an Alliance like hubs are.

Thanks for your informative comments.

You wish it was a failed Olympics.It made money and the city has benefited more than any Superbowl Miami can host.
Nice how you ignore the question,

It's a similar operation in Atlanta. It's a hub dependent city that couldn't manage to sustain most of those flights on O&D. Thanks for playing.
You lost long before you started backing Miami as anything more than a party town for flashy tacky European trust fund babies.
