Besides all of the business related travel…KAL also operates alot of air cargo from the South Cargo Ramp every night… (KAL245) and the pax flight (KAL35/36) operates during the day

I use to fly a C-210 into ATL 5 nights a week, at 9pm at night. It was a HUGE pain in the ass to get in line behind all the heavy iron inbound AND out. I do like that they call the Delta taxiway Dixie. And it took 2 weeks before I had the balls to ask ground what the hell a “mad-dog” was, because I was always told to follow one. HAHA the good old days.


#18

Let’s not forget about China Airlines Cargo that flies in daily!
