Could it be a function of “dynamic” marketing.
My SFO-MAD award was 51K Avios and when I looked at LAX - MAD award for same period it was 63K Avios

You probably picked different days for SFO ( off Peak) vs LAX ( Peak), if you check the same date you will see what i am talking about, (for example June 3rd )

LAX was historically given band 6 or 7, can't remember which making it the same as ORD (similar for MEX) even though it is technically in the next band.

I'm guessing it's just a grandfathered in curiosity and SFO was given the "proper" band pricing.

Thank you, this makes sense.
