Fly from Atlanta to Santa Ana, California for $136 roundtrip on American Airlines. For those in SoCal looking to heading to Atlanta, this fare also works in reverse for the same price.
As an example, I found seats departing ATL on Thursday, September 5, and returning from SNA on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
This fare is available on scattered dates in the spring, but more widely available from late August through early December then again from mid-January through February 2020. Travel days vary, but most inventory can be found on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday departures.
You may have better luck searching for two separate one-way tickets between American and United and stitch together a custom itinerary if you can't find travel dates that work for you.
This is a Basic Economy fare, which includes a carry-on bag plus one personal item. A checked bag costs $30 each way.
Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for this price.
United is price matching on this route at $136 roundtrip. However, United's Basic Economy fares are more restrictive than that of American and only include a personal sized item. If that's fine for your travel purposes, you may find additional travel days using the carrier.
