Airfares out of Atlanta are expected to rise more than 20% for Thanksgiving and Christmas from year-ago levels, but the increases are not expected to be as great as they are in other parts of the U.S., according to a fare-forecasting Web site. The site predicted that U.S. fares will increase an average of 35% for Thanksgiving and 31% for Christmas. The increased fares, along with a host of new fees, are being implemented to offset rising fuel costs.
