Well you could fly to London on a major airline for pretty cheap and then take one of those cheapo carriers to Athens.

it all depends on the timing – if you want to buy tickets now – they’re going to be expensive.  For some reason, the last weekend in March is always super cheap (and those fares will start up in January/February).  We went to Rome (and got engaged) from Chicago – air and hotel for less than $1000 for four days.

A few other things you might try – fly out from another major city – Chicago, NYC, etc.  Since they have more routes, they’ll be cheaper.

EasyJet in Europe has super cheap flights as well. 

Kayak is your friend:  http://www.kayak.com/buzz  This will give you the cheapest flights throughout europe searched within the last 48 hours.

Good luck!

Have you priced out Paris?  Sometimes Paris is cheaper to fly into than London.  Also, you might want to look at buying your international and domestic flights separately.  I have seen some amazing deals on direct flights between JFK and Charles de Gaulle, but you’d have to get to NYC first. 

Oh, you could also try flying into Dublin.  My sister lives in Spain, and she flies into/out of Dublin quite a bit.  I would say, though, that $850/person isn’t too bad.  We flew out of San Fransisco to London (direct flight) for our honeymoon this May, and I think we paid $800 per person.
