If you live south of metro Atlanta and travel a lot, I think I have a solid recommendation for you. Though, to be honest, it’s probably one of those things for people living south of Griffin.
Right now I’m sitting in the Atlanta Airport waiting for a connection. I’ve got to make a quick trip to Washington today. I flew out of Macon’s Airport on ASA. A flight round trip to Washington-Reagan from Atlanta was $323. Roundtrip from Macon to Washington-Reagan and back was $343.00. Factor in parking at Atlanta (it’s free at Macon’s airport) and gas and you’ve got yourself a very good deal.
What’s even better is getting through security. It took all of five minutes. Because everyone was present and on the plane when boarding started, we left earlier than the stated departure time. The flight to Atlanta was 18 minutes. Total gate to gate time was just under 30 minutes.
The convenience and minimal price difference made the choice easy.
One more thing — I noticed a U.S. Airway jet in a hangar at Macon’s airport. I wonder what’s up with that.
