$135 Round-Trip Tix ATL-DFW!!! Make it a Day Trip, No Hotel!

Just go to American's site and choose 12/29 for both flights. There are round-trip tix available that conceivably would give you time to fly out that morning, make the game and fly back that night.

I'm bracing for the incoming flood of TUs***

8:31 pm departure time seems like you're cutting it

Leave a little early if you have to (gonna be a blowout anyway), have a ride to the airport pre-arranged, no checked baggage, TSA pre-check, tickets and boarding passes in hand before leaving home.. I think it's possible. Looks like 20 minutes drive time in normal traffic. I wonder how bad traffic will be shortly before people start to leave the game? If money is a concern for anyone considering the trip, I think it's worth a look.

The 8:31 departure time is Central Time local as well.

You would have to rent a helicopter to get back in time to DFW for your return flight!


I agree, 3pm local start time

if it actually kicks off right at 3. Extended halftime. Post game traffic. Better hope there aren't any replay reviews or OT. It's a 20 minute drive to the airport with no traffic from AT&T stadium.

Just leave after Clemson wins the coin toss and chooses to play defense

Sure sign clemson will win the game.

May be worth a chance though, especially if we are up big and leave a few minutes before the end. You would have to hope that the majority of the ND crowd didn't leave at half-time.


Bet you could get some pretty nice seats

with the money saved on airfare and not getting a hotel..

Don't waste your time on In N Out Burgers, most overrated restaurant in history. I can point you to 20 better places in DFW for Burgers.

Amen brother ..... not impressed at all. Can't even get mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato ..... have to get their special sauce.


In N Out is so overrated.

Five Guys is much much better in my opinion.

get back and 11:30. Seriously though- it's something to consider for those nearby or place to stay in ATL. I think you can do it.


Leave your car at the ATL airport for the day?


Posted: Dec 7, 2018 12:24 PM
 

Costs $15-20 daily in the domestic lots, I believe.

4+ hours from ATL makes it impossible for me without staying

2 nights in ATL


This is a game changer... I am strongly considering this.

Thanks for the find!


Re: This is a game changer... I am strongly considering this.

So all times local Dallas time. 3:00 kickoff would give 4.5 to 5 hours for game and then shoot to the airport right after game. Is this correct?

Not sure if kickoff will be at 3:00 sharp, but yes that's local time. 3 pm Central game starts, flight scheduled to leave at 8:31 pm Central. Roughly 20% chance the flight is delayed as well.

I'd rather go and maybe have to leave a little early


Posted: Dec 7, 2018 1:32 PM
 

than stay home because the costs of traveling to attend all these games are just too much. If we're playing backups by the 4th quarter like I expect, it's a no-brainer.

Wanna fly out the morning of the game and fly back on 1/1?


Posted: Dec 7, 2018 1:50 PM
 

That's even cheaper:

For anybody living within a reasonable driving distance of the ATL airport, check Southwest. They usually have lower rates to Texas and a much larger selection of flight times to and from DFW. Worth a look.
