Received a couple of emails about why I don’t post low fares from Atlanta. Simple answer. I rarely see Atlanta deals. Today there are low United/SAS fares from Atlanta to Copenhagen and Stockholm, but these fares in the $500s are only available in October and many of these itineraries require an overnight in Chicago on the return.
On top of that, these fares do not price out on United or SAS websites. Low fare dates can be found on Google Flights, then go to OTA sites like Expedia and Orbitz for booking at that price.
Expedia ticket: SAS/United Atlanta – Chicago ORD – Copenhagen – Chicago ORD (overnight layover) – Atlanta ATL
Orbitz ticket: SAS/United Atlanta ATL – Washington IAD – Stockholm ARN – Chicago (overnight layover) – Atlanta ATL
There is a $570 round trip fare flying via Chicago both ways. Outbound includes 7 hour layover in Chicago and same overnight on return.
Those long layovers in Chicago make Atlanta to Athens for $711 round trip with Air Canada on a two stop itinerary seem like a better deal.
