We routinely pay $400 pp round trip from LGA > ATL. Most other similar-distance airports are about $200-$250. Like I said, SFO is about $400 round trip, and that's, what, 4x the distance?
I pay that much, and sometimes a bit less, from FLL or MIA, to ATL to SFO. So I guess the FL to ATL leg is free?
I also pay a little over $200 FLL to LGA rt
