Is ATL About To Fall Relative To Other Megahubs?

If one looks at the master plans of the major US megahubs, it's noticeable how little additional gate capacity Atlanta is planning on building-a modest ~10 gate Concourse G for International Arrivals/Departures, which may not even be built . They'll also be doing a very modest expansion of the T gat...

IMO IAG needs to utilized MAD and IB as their Africa gateway. LHR is for whatever relies on London traffic.
