budget airlines from lax to chicago

are there any budget airlines flying from Los Angeles to Chicago? I can find prices for around $350 return in july, but was wondering if there would be any cheaper prices (just out of curiousity)

Most people would say Southwest airlines but I have found that the regular carries keep up with what Southwest is doing and lower their fares accordingly. You may want to try a search on travelocity.com and see what is going on there (note that southwest doesn't show up on searches so you will have to access their website to see their fares). But $350 return isn't a bad price from LA to Chicago. I wouldn't think you would do all that much better.

thanks, I just had a look at Southwest and was getting around the same price as well, I thought $350 was a pretty good price too

Airlines are very competitive on their pricing, which is why they keep going into banckruptcy. I'm finding American Airlines Super Saver fare at $233.00 one way in July.

check out Virgin America as they have flights at $233 each way but it seems they are always discounting their fares to $99 each way from Chicago to LAX.
