Seahawks fans finding tickets, flights online


SEATTLE - Seahawks fans who hope to travel to Atlanta to see next weekend's game are finding tickets, flights and accommodations online.


There were no tickets on sale at CenturyLink Field, the home of the Seahawks, said KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Amy Clancy.


Instead, the Hawks are referring fans to for package deals. Nearly $800 buys airfare, a ticket to the game and hotel -- plus a few extras.


There were thousands of tickets for sale on, the only authorized ticket resale site.


Clancy said there's a trick: If you click on "Seahawks," it says "no tickets available." But if you click on the Falcons, you can still get tickets for as little as $75 a piece.


There are also flights still available.  The least expensive round trip was around $450 earlier Monday, but by Monday night were closer to $650.  People can often save money buying one way on different airlines.


The Washington State Lottery will again offer two all-inclusive packages during a drawing this Wednesday.


Show up at Southcenter, purchase two $5 scratch tickets, and cross your fingers. You can line up as early as 1 p.m. The drawing will take place just after 7 p.m.


Or, try your luck on Craigslist, where a few Falcon season ticket holders and others are hoping to make a few bucks.


When using a site like craigslist, use your credit card so you have some recourse if the seller is not legi, Clancy warned.


And if you find a price you like, you might want to buy since prices were rising throughout the day.


A travel agent said that hotel rates and rental car rates in Atlanta are very reasonable.
