Boston - Atlanta $115 Roundtrip for Fall/Winter Travel

Fly nonstop from Boston to Atlanta for $115 roundtrip on Delta or Southwest. This price is widely available from November through early March, excluding peak holiday travel.

Otherwise, Southwest is selling standard Economy tickets for $116 roundtrip including two free checked bags and no change fees.
