I just booked a flight LAX-YVR on Alaska Airlines. I booked on aa.com and it was $45 cheaper then booking the exact same flight on Alaskaair.com.

This happens all the time in the world of code shares.

Most likely the aa.com price was on the code share flights, so the fare is subject to different revenue management. More often than not the code-shares are actually more expensive than the same flights on the host airline.
