  1. Your screen shots don’t show any return dates (they appear to be one way fares). I’ve used the dates shown and am getting nothing significantly south of $900 round trip with an LAX return. Can you share some sample outbound/return date pairings that you used? If you have any round trip samples to/from LAX, let me know. Thank you.
