The only issue I can see here is that a 1215am arrival might not count as the last flight in on date x, but instead as the first flight in on date x+1, and so your attempt to "connect" on x+1 is getting stuck by the gap in hours.

Have you tried it with the last arrival into LAX that is scheduled before midnight? That's the 10:43pm.

Also, "undesirable" connections, like overnight or airport-change, are given a low display priority (and so rarely show up) in Price & Schedule displays. To see them you pretty much have to do it by Schedule alone. Price alone in theory should work, but the Price alone tool has never really worked as it should.

These ideas worked, many, many thanks.
