Fare Help Needed

Sat Mar 17, 2007 11:38 pm

Ok guys I am trying to get from CAK, CLE, or PIT to ATL on 3/23/2007 and back the same day. Normally I can make this flight for anywhere between 200-300, now the cheapest is around 500. I want to go to of course get to fly but my boss won't let me unless I find a cheaper fare.

Also why on Expedia if I look for a nonstop on DL from CAK does it now show any? Does that mean it is totally sold out? I am surprised by how full the flights apparently are out of these three airports to ATL.

Hate to tell you but a Friday during the beginning of Spring break season with less than a week notice into a big hub like ATL pretty much means you're SOL. Best bet is to go Thursday night and spend the night. It's actually almost exactly the same price when you buy a package and you'll actually be in ATL long enough to get something done.

I use http://matrix.itasoftware.com/cvg/dispatch/ The site involves registration but its free and one of the best travel sites I've found to date.

If its an option using the link about I priced CLE-BNA for $303.00 on 3/23. United flying down and U.S. Airways flying back.

WN is offering a CLE-BNA fare $111.00 each way. The fare is fully refundable.

Driving from Nashville to Atlanta is about a 3.5 to 4 hour drive. I also checked flying to CHA but the fares were way up there.

If you can remain either in ATL or BNA, and fly back on Saturday 3/24. WN is offering a supersaver fare BNA-CLE for
$84.00. Hotels around BNA are reasonable.

Throwaway ticketing is not allowed. If you don't make the ATL-XYZ flight you risk have the rest of your itinerary cancelled, forcing you to buy a ticket out of ATL at the walkup price for what's left.


Unfortunately, you can't get there for under $500, especially with less than 7 days until the flight.
