How to avoid British Airways and instead choose a different airline?

    Hi Lucky,

    Would you please let me know of any tricks to avoid British Airways and instead get on a different airlines for travel between following cities?

    [B]ATL – IST[/B]
    [B]ATL – ATH[/B]
    [B]ATL – CAI[/B]

    I find tickets on my desired dates (December, 2016) both on AA and BA websites using AA Miles. Just want to avoid BA outbound. When I return, I will be taking BA for inbound anyways. I just do not want to pay fuel surcharges on both ways. Appreciate your thoughts into this.

    [USER=1451]@Javed Rahman[/USER] — Look for availability on airberlin or Iberia, or even on American. You’ll have to make an extra connection, so I’d start by searching from airports other than Atlanta. will always give you the most efficient routing, not necessarily the cheapest.
