Restaurant Review: One Flew South, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

When I booked our tickets to fly to Chattanooga, TN, the best-priced itinerary included a 3 & 1/2 hour layover in Atlanta. While most travelers would think of this as a major inconvenience, I only had one thing on my mind: I’d finally be able to eat at One Flew South.

I’ve been reading about this restaurant for a while. It has a great reputation with restaurant reviewers and travel bloggers alike and gets 4 1/2 Stars on Yelp!, with almost 800 reviews to date. It’s also on several “Best of” lists, including the 10 Best Sushi in Atlanta and Best Airport Food in the World. One Flew South refers to itself as “the first upscale dining restaurant in the world’s busiest airport.” Those are pretty big shoes to fill, so you may be able to see why I was looking forward to eating there.

An Airline Doing Good In A Time of Travel Tragedy

I’m sure you’ve heard about the derailment of the Amtrak train in Washington State that happened yesterday morning. While making its inaugural trip from Seattle to Portland, train No. 501 was going too quickly and, while on a curve, ran off its track. The accident involved thirteen train cars that fell from the bridge they were on, which then hit 5 cars and 2 trucks on the I-5 freeway below. At last report, there were, tragically, at least 3 confirmed fatalities as well as several dozen people who needed to be hospitalized.

The accident completely blocked off all lanes of Interstate 5, a major north-south route. In response to that, one airline is providing an alternative for holiday travelers on that normally busy stretch of highway, at deeply discounted rates.
