ATLANTA (CNN) -- Low-fare air carrier Vanguard Airlines handed out 1,000 free round-trip tickets early Monday morning in Atlanta, to hopefuls who gathered in a parking lot at the city's Turner Field. To be eligible for the free ticket, potential passengers were asked to bring a case of canned goods between 6 and 7 a.m. for donation to the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Vanguard, which launched in 1994, serves home-base Kansas City, Missouri and airports in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York, Pittsburgh and San Francisco. The tickets in Monday's giveaway are good for any Vanguard destination. The airline offered a similar hour-long deal Friday in Kansas City.
