you want eqp? or eqm? if eqp, look at yups...

the usual suspects are sfo/lax/san/etc who have red eye returns....

you can quickly check for your dates...

a quick look says some fairly decent ones are available....

to get the best buck for the money, hire a hunting guide!

post the best you find that you will do & ask if it can be improved...

how are you doing?

by now, i would have looked at most of the left coast suspects....

aa.com shows a week or so w/the low rt price for each day....then you can see if the sked & cpm work or look at the premium for eqp...

try it for lax & sfo.....
