ATLANTA (AP) -- Airport officials are unveiling which concessions will open for Atlanta's new international terminal.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport says more than 20 retail outlets, restaurants and other shops will greet passengers at the world's busiest airport when the terminal opens on May 16.

The restaurants that will open that day include Sweet Auburn Market Cafe, French Meadow Bakery, Pei Wei Asian Diner, The Varsity, The Original El Taco and The Pecan.

Shopping choices include The Body Shop, Tommy Hilfiger and Brookstone. An interfaith chapel, vending machines and ATMs will also be available when the terminal opens.

More shops and restaurants will open later this year, including spa accommodations and a lounge.

The terminal is more than a decade in the making and is designed to handle the airport's growing international traffic.

I don't care how many politicians lie about these deals, I still say the Mayor is heavily involved in the final decision about whose contract to accept. It is racial and/or favoritism at its highest level. This goes on at almost every major airport and the court system will protect the Mayor at all costs. Usually the people testifying on behalf of the City is lying the whole time. The sad part is the news media do not know enough in depth reporting to get to the very bottom of the decisions. In the end, they look like fools for bringing the story to light.
