AA/BA: INV-LAX/SFO/LAS, sub $1400 RT

AA ticked INV-LAX/SFO-LAS in March, round trip. Usually two stops each way (LHR and an AA gateway), or one stop (LHR) for ~100GBP more.

Examples:
INV-LAX $1277 https://www.google.com/flights/?f=0#...7*2.USD.127687

INV-SFO $1341 https://www.google.com/flights/?f=0#...0*2.USD.134070

INV-SFO one stop $1492 https://www.google.com/flights/?f=0#...6*2.USD.149136

ITA Matrix shows all fares booking into I class. Two stops in LHR and JFK should get you 320TP each way, which should get you BA Silver in one shot.

Any tips on how to get this on ITA? I've removed the stop limit but still only getting 2 stops.

Thanks!

In advanced controls just enter the stops you want. INV - LAX on November 4 - 11th with `LHR HEL JFK SFO` in the first routing box and `SFO JFK HEL LHR` in the second.

I found INV-LHR-JFK-LAX-LAS return for $1,207. I'm tempted to book this as I can actually use it to get home from a trip I've already partially booked and then return to Europe for my birthday.

It'll take a while to crunch but you can put "LHR HEL JFK LAX" and vice versa into ITA's routing code box

This has been talked about here for awhile - BA - LHR -> ORD 1,874 GBP in F / 1,474 GBP in J roundtrip
It's a broad sale - basically anywhere from UK to anywhere US. Sale in both J and F. Book by 1/31, avail scattered throughout 2019, but surprisingly good over the summer, a normally bad time for sales.

FYI - it looks like this fare expires tonight, so if you're going to book this be quick about it!
