Southwest has round-trip flights from Houston (HOU) to Los Angeles (LAX) for $107, NONSTOP. $54 each way. Flights November to March. Mostly midweek. Some Saturdays available in January and February. Holiday blackout applies. Origin/Destination reversible. Expect prices to fluctuate +/- $20.
Note: This destination has been on sale every other month or so with prices persisting for a few days before inventory dries up, but this is the longest I’ve seen it last. We’ve seen it as low as $87 in the past month.

To find this fare on Southwest Airlines you need to be using the Fare Calendar. If you’re randomly plugging in dates you’re going to have a hard time finding discount fares.
If you plan on booking a hotel, use our travel coupon codes to save up to 15% to 20% off. Alternatively, you may be able to save the most money by booking your trip as a Flight + Hotel package on Priceline, Orbitz, or Travelocity.
Southwest never charges a change or cancellation fee. If you cancel within 24-hours they will reverse the credit card charge. If you cancel before your flight, they will give you a travel voucher that you can apply for future travel valued at the full price you paid. Voucher isn’t transferable and expires after 1-year, but it beats getting hit with a change fee.
Note: OTAs such as Travelocity and Priceline allow free cancellation without penalty within 24-hours after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy will allow you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. Just keep in mind that after 24-hours, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty. On Travelocity, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancellation” next to the button to purchase the ticket.
Most airlines also offer 24-hour free cancellation with varying policies. For example American Airlines allows you to “Hold” a ticket before payment for 24-hours but once you pay for it you can’t cancel without a change fee or penalty, even if it was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
