Orbitz has $480-$492 a/i round trip fares from Chicago to Athens in May, June, July, and August on many weekdays. It looks like the mistake has been there for about 24 hours. The biggest drawback is the connection in PHL at 4:30 PM.
 
Departures are available on Sun, Mon, Tues, Weds, Thurs. Returns are available on Mon, Tues, Weds, Thurs. See the Kayak/SideStep “Buzz” section for available dates. This is only available via Orbitz for a US Airways flight.

Excellent. Thanks for posting. Any Eurotrippers to Athens wondering if it will get cheaper… DON’T KID YOURSELF! This is THE fare if you’re headed to Athens. Please feel free to add your success stories with this fare.

Looks like it might be gone already. I tried ITA and BookingBuddy (which searches Orbitz, USair, et. al.), and cheapest is now $1271.
