Have not looked, but may also be worth checking out openjaw options.

Unfortunately open Jaws give me a price higher than the separate ticket to/from LAX. My idea was to arrive in PHX and take a side trip to LAS. Then using the layover on the PHX-OTP return to see also a bit of LAX, since I transited there at least 4 times and never had the chance to venture outside the airport area
Anyway, maybe I am doing something wrong, but the inbound option PHX-JFK-LHR-HEL-LHR-OTP on same dates comes with a difference of just 15/20 eur comparing the "original" routing.
Basically going through lax, one or two times doesn't matter, adds around 150 eur to the ticket price. Returning via MAD, or MXP, or even CDG lowers the price to 1640 eur, but of course loses other 40 TPs, for a total of "just" 960 TPs. I can live with that, of course, even if I liked the idea of trying AY on the TATL
