A Frontier Airlines Airbus A320-200N, registration N365FR performing flight F9-1498 from New Orleans,LA to Atlanta,GA (USA), was cleared to land on Atlanta's runway 09R but lined up with runway 09L. The aircraft was on short final to runway 09L descending through about 250 feet AGL about 1500 meters/4900 feet before the runway threshold.

A Turkish Airlines Boeing 777-200 freighter, registration TC-LJM performing flight TK-6319 from Atlanta,GA to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA), had been cleared to line up runway 09L and was just being cleared for takeoff from runway 09L, when tower noticed the Frontier Airbus on short final for runway 09L and instructed the Frontier to go around advising them they were lined up with the wrong runway and cancelled the takeoff clearance for the Turkish.

The Frontier went around from about 200 feet AGL, climbed to 3000 feet MSL, positioned for another approach and landed safely on runway 09R about 15 minutes after the go around.

The Turkish Airlines freighter, not yet having accelerated their engines for takeoff, received a new takeoff clearance and departed about 2 minutes after the first takeoff clearance landing in Chicago without further incident.
