Fare Alert: $98 Round-Trip Non-Stop Between Atlanta and Los Angeles — Including All Taxes and Fees

I just received a “news flash” from Travelzoo pertaining to an airfare which is not found on such tools as Google Flights at the time this article was posted where you can fly as a passenger round-trip on non-stop flights between Atlanta and Los Angeles for as little as $98.0o — including all taxes and fees.

This airfare is widely available for departures between Saturday, October 3, 2015 and Friday, November 13, 2015 — including Columbus Day and Halloween — on flights operated by Frontier Airlines.

Great Sale? Perhaps — If You Can Get Through; and If…

Frontier Airlines is having a great sale effective through tomorrow, Wednesday, August 26, 2015 from the many articles I have read today; and unlike many other sales offered by Frontier Airlines — such as this one from six days ago — the sale fares can be used on round-trip itineraries instead of only one way; and you do not need to be a member of the Discount Den to take advantage of these low airfares.

War Brewing in Atlanta? That Depends on Your Perspective…

“It is clear Frontier & Spirit, our country’s two largest low cost carriers, are going after Atlanta pretty hard. While I am surprised there is so much overlap with their new routes, I am confident it will drive prices down”, Shawn Coomer of Miles to Memories posted earlier today in this article. “My guess is that Delta is ready for this fight and will match the prices of their low cost competitors, but only time will tell. I am just glad that it is going to get much cheaper for me to fly to Atlanta from Las Vegas!”

Actually, Shawn, Delta Air Lines has already been ready for this “fight” in the form of Basic Economy airfares, which offers Main Cabin service with fewer flexibility options available in select markets. As I first wrote in this article back in December…
