No, unfortunately not, unless you can buy two one-ways departing the same date.

Is the Andy reference to some trick or is Andy a person? You don't have to tell me the trick if it is a reference to one. I won't be flying this, it's not far enough in the future to plan.

FWIW I've also seen similar prices (sub-300 USD one way) for random LAX-ZIH dates.

Thanks! That covers a shorter distance and has fewer segments, but still a good price!

No need to worry cruser1 You may be too young to remember but they're referencing "Andy" Dufresne from the film Shawshank Redemption! It is one of my favorite films - please watch it if you haven't.

Thanks! I was 6 years old when that was released, but have seen it as an adult and get it now.
