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?)

Strange, I've had better luck on this sort of stuff recently. Where have you been trying to make the reservations through?

I'm not sure whether their pricing is better, but I've heard several really bad stories about how things went with Orbitz tickets if anything goes wrong with any of your flights.
