ATLANTA — Both Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines have added more flights into Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport from Boston and Los Angeles for Rams and Patriots fans headed in for the Super Bowl.
In addition, Southwest said they have former St. Louis Rams fans covered with an extra flight from Lambert International Airport in St. Louis.

Never to be left out of the fray, discounter JetBlue Airways has added extra flights to and from Atlanta from its Boston hub, but they took the opportunity to take a jab at Atlanta, harkening back to the Falcons' loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI after blowing a 28-3 lead in the third quarter.
