I have to overnight at ATL coming back from IST next month and want to know how it works at ATL.
It's really easy at ATL - easier than MSP. At ATL, there's a big overhead sign saying TSA PreCheck (black background with white letters, as I recall) at the checkpoint closest to SkyPriority checkin. The security line has three lanes - they scan your boarding pass at the entrance to the three lanes and if your pass beeps you get to go through the precheck line.
Be aware that they have added queue line before you get to the Pre-check scanner. Everyone goes through this single line (non-elite, elite/FC, and Pre-check) before being split into 3 lines. Pre-check will be the longest line, but goes about 5x as fast as the elite line. On a Monday AM (peak security line time) you should plan for at least 25-30 minutes to get through, though it may not always take that long.
