JAX-ATL Help

Wed Nov 17, 2004 11:59 pm

I need to book a flight for JAX-ATL for any date in October 2005. I can't find a fare below $118.20 round trip, no matter what connections I try. Can anybody help me please?

I know it's a short hop, but that's not a bad fare.

Considering booking so far in advance, that is an excellent fare. There most likely will be fare sales from now until then, so you should wait. But if you have a specific flight/time/airline you require, I would book it. You could get a credit if the fare drops below the $118.20 amount and use the credit for a future flight. Don't expect the fare to go much lower. With the price of fuel, we may not be seeing the super deals of the past, even from Air Tran. They have also been feeling the pain of hight fuel prices.

And we wonder why airlines are cutting salaries and benefits???? This guy thinks $118 is too much money for an airline flight. Gees, buddy, the airline employees need to feed their families, too.

Take the bus, if you want cheap.

Hahahah.....good one Jason.

I'd think 118 would cover my gas round-trip car....or cover the F/O's hourly salary Big grin

Or the amount of extra insurance I'd take out if I flew AirTran.  Smile

In a few months I would look again as the fares are always pulling a yo-yo. Somedays it will be really low and then the next it will be very expensive.

If you don't need to check luggage on the way to ATL, try building it as one-ways on separate airlines. For instance, price JAX-ATL-MSY on Delta, and ATL-IAH-JAX on CO. I doubt you'll find anything cheaper than what you've already identified, but if you hit the right cities you may get lucky. . .

Kinda reminds me of my jarhead friend who was going to go to Atlanta with me last summer. I had a price of $140 R/T on Delta Air Lines, 764's both ways and he said we should drive. Keep in mind driving time between MCO and ATL is 8 hours so that would take at least 2 of our vacation days up which is crap. We calculated fuel costs and it came out well above $140......Anyway my point is 118 is one hell of a fare and I would take it in a heartbeat....If thats not cheap enough for you then walk or hope to God CheapJet starts that route  Big thumbs up
