I'll be going to Aruba in May. This is my first vacation and my first time on an airplane. I will be flying with Delta airlines. It is not a direct flight, I live in Toronto, Canada and we will stop in Atlanta first.
We live in Ottawa and always have to fly to another city to catch a connection to Aruba. We have flown Delta (but not in a few years) and have really enjoyed it. We have done Air Canada, United, Us Air and Delta. Delta was one of the better ones. Atlanta is a big airport but very organized, actually we liked that airport better than Pearson.
Living in the Atlanta metro area, Delta is our airline of convenience. They fly all of the places we go to. With that said, they are pretty solid.
We have never had any major problems, and the few times we did they made sure they took care of "things": refunded a ticket no questions asked when an adoption fell through, replaced a damaged piece of luggage at full msrp when they could not replace the exact color we want to match the rest of our brand new set.
My Mom has had some issues as well and they have made things right.
As far as the ATL airport itself, as long as you have enough time between connections you will be fine.
