If you can't catch the train, or living out of your car for three days doesn't have the same ring to it that it used to, you'll probably want to fly to PAX.
Now, I'm no Uncle Moneybags (heck, I'm not even an uncle), so I want to make sure my travel is still as cheap as possible. So let's hear your airfare deals as you find them here in this thread. Please list the Departure city and airport code, the airline, the fare, as well as any time/date restrictions you may know about. The arrival airport is assumed to be SEA unless otherwise stated.
Atlanta - Hartsfield-Jackson (ATL)
- Airtran - $200 per person

- Must purchase before March 8
- [strike]Virgin America - $139[/strike]

At Seatac you can either catch the bus outside the far end of baggage claim. Or you can get a shuttle/taxi/etc. from an island that you have to get to in a somewhat more confusing way. You have to go up a floor from baggage claim to cross the road via. the sky bridge, and then go back down a level to get to the transportation. The map below makes it look less confusing.
This map shows you were all the transportation options pick you up, and how to get to them. http://www.portseattle.org/about/maps/ground.shtml
And this link tells you how much it'll usually cost you to go where you want to go. Just scroll down to Seattle-Downtown. http://www.portseattle.org/seatac/ground/groundrates.shtml
I'll add more to this such as travel tips, how to make reservations, and what to do at the airport. I fly a lot and know it can get confusing for first time travelers. People who have experience with the Seattle airport, please give me tips on where to catch a cab, airport shuttle services, and/or mass transit services at the airport.
