I periodically check flight prices from NY to ATL, and the last few times I checked (a few days ago), the price has been about $320 round trip, non-stop. Today when I checked (on Orbitz), the price dropped to $199 (including fees). So perhaps now is the time to book flights!

ETA: I checked prices from other airports flying to Atlanta (leaving 4/19/2012 and returning 4/23/2012 Thursday to Monday) and will check them periodically to see if prices are dropping or raising. This is on Orbitz, and the prices include the posted taxes and fees (though not additional fees such as for bags). I will check other ones if anyone requests.

(As of 12/21/2011)

*updated 1/11/2012:
NY $305 non stop (up from $199 on 1/4/2012)
Philly $349 non stop (up from $245 on 1/4/2012)
Houston $218 non stop (down from $252 on 1/4/2012)
Salt Lake City $359 non stop (down from $425 on 1/4/2012), $318 1 stop (down from $377 on 1/4/2012) ***
Toronto $810 non stop (down from $813 on 1/4/2012), $590 1 stop (down from $595 on 1/4/2012)
San Francisco $419 non stop (up from $335 on 1/4/2012), $416 1 stop (up from $390 on 1/4/2012)
Amsterdam $1162 non stop (down from $1181 on 1/4/2012), $867 1 stop (down from $964 on 1/4/2012), $857 2+ stops (down from $967 on 1/4/2012) ***
Chicago $179 non stop (down from $209 on 1/4/2012)

ETA: Since Southwest doesn't work with Orbitz, I checked their prices separately. Their web site indicates you can check 2 bags with no fees. It is also a bit tricky since the first results screen shows the price for each leg of the trip, not as a total like Orbitz does:

NYC (LGA) $327 1 stop (web only, "wanna get away" promotion) (up from $326 on 1/4/2012)

Just for the heck of it I checked prices from Buffalo, NY to Atlanta and those look like they're in the $260 range. Is that too far to drive for the price difference?

At $4/gallon, 30mpg, you are looking at $120 each way just for gas, though you won't have to pay to check bags or rent a car. So maybe it is worth it for 2 or more people to drive, but not 1. And it is about 14 hrs each way according to google, so 2 drivers will make it a lot easier.

I guess I wasn't clear. Is it too far to drive from Toronto to Buffalo to fly out from there? It's should be about a 2 hour drive.

It was 2 hours when I made a few road trips to Toronto back in the day, at least in the days before passports were required to go to Canada. It makes sense since you will save about $300 on the flight minus the gas and parking/rental car fees.

Right now, it looks like you can get a non stop from Buffalo to Atlanta for $295 while a 1-stop from Toronto is $683.
