Sample Google Flights itinerary from ORD for $669. Even better CPM on similar dates from Los Angeles for $740.

Looks like lots of inventory with United, available in September.

Note - you likely require a visa to go to India.

Is an immediate turn possible or will customs/immigration/security necessitate an overnight stay?

I've never tried to do an immediate turnaround in Mumbai. Besides, the closest 'cheap' fare I'm seeing shows a 24 hour stay regardless.

If you wanted to rack up a ton of UA miles with a quick turnaround, I'd suggest YYZ-SIN. Immediate turnaround for 730ish, 1 day turnaround for under $600. 21,000 miles.

Excellent. BOM is out—and likely anywhere in India.

I just arrived in SFO from SIN and am back again this evening. SIN is a great run. Prices start to spike in June, so I am doing 4 runs to MEL instead.

Does anyone know of a list of overseas airports where a quick turnaround is possible?
