I just _love_ airline pricing schemes!

A roundtrip ticket from Long Beach to Seattle plus a roundtrip ticket from Seattle to Denver is $490. A three point trip from Long Beach to Seattle to Denver and back to Long beach is... $780. If i make it a three point trip originating in LAX instead it drops the price down somewhat to $550-$620, which is _almost_ as cheap as taking a whole extra flight and hanging around at the airport in Seattle for who knows how long. Not to mention the inconvenience of having to go up to LAX instead of a closer airport like LGB or SNA. (It can't even find me a three-point flight out of SNA, i guess there are no flights to there from Denver?)
