    It's not really that confusing to navigate, it's just very crowded. Does he have some particular special needs? – Michael Hampton Oct 30 '15 at 0:23

    Are you looking for you / a family member to go airside to help? Or are you looking to hire someone / a service to do it? Or are you just wondering about free assistance? – Gagravarr Oct 30 '15 at 0:27
  • There is a high-end service in Atlanta who will meet at the door of the plane and accompany them though baggage, connections, etc. It's rather pricey, is that something you would consider? – Gayot Fow Oct 30 '15 at 6:02
  • Is he flying domestically or arriving on an international flight? I've done a tight layover like that on Delta from South Africa, connecting to LAX. Train wasn't running so we had to walk (quickly) a good distance besides getting through immigration and customs. – mkennedy Oct 30 '15 at 17:41

If your family member is elderly or if he is a minor, then you can arrange some options for him. But if he is a fully functional adult, then he is pretty much on his own.

Atlanta is not that difficult of an airport to navigate, but it can be crowded. Assuming he is flying Delta, they usually have someone at the gate to direct passengers to their next flight and they would be happy to give him detail instructions of getting to his next gate. And there are often information people at the train stations to assist people with finding their way.

Personally I would have booked him flights with a longer layover, as 52 minutes is tight, but still do-able.

    Second the time bit! I certainly wouldn't book a 52 minute layover for a virgin traveler! I'd only book it for myself if there wasn't any other reasonable option. – Loren Pechtel Oct 30 '15 at 1:31
