Hands down one of the best airfare deals out of Atlanta is to two of North America’s most beautiful destinations — Calgary, Alberta and Vancouver, British Columbia.
Start your trip as soon as this month or even through Thanksgiving week. Where you might get the most bang for your buck is to Vancouver for skiing through early March. Consider either city for an ideal fall getaway. Blackout dates vary a day or two +-: Dec 12-January 7.
Air partners Delta and WestJet service each city with nonstop flights on the cheap. For starters, you cannot beat nonstop (IMHO) to the west (flights are 5-6 hours). Check out these prices starting at just $88 each way.

WestJet offers a Premium Economy class but the one-way rates for a bit more comfort and booze is over $500. But the airline has a unique way to snag an upgraded seat at possibly the price you are willing to pay. After placing an offer on a flight segment, you will receive an email approximately 72 hours before your flight informing you whether your offer was accepted. Here’s more about the upgrade bid process.
