I apologize if I confused you, but yes I was talking about one way (A) fares $450, for first class not round trip. To follow up with your question, a coach ticket non-stop from FLL to LAX May 2nd (U) fare $99 dollars plus tax. - one way. Once again I apologize for going astray from the original thread, but yes A fares have definitely doubled.

FLL to SLC back down

I just checked and (A) fare one way first class tickets from FLL to SLC are back down to $414!!. Maybe this is a starting trend for other transcontinental A fares to drop back to their original prices.

I think A fares do need to go down. I'm looking for PBI next year already, and the A fare is $811 RT. Ridiculous price to fly on a M88. It should be $599.
