United, jetBlue, Alaska Airlines, and Delta have round-trip flights from Los Angeles (LAX) to Salt Lake City (SLC) for $78-$98, NONSTOP. Flights August to November. Departures on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Extended weekends available. Origin/Destination reversible.
A Carry-on bag and also a personal item is allowed for free on Delta and Alaska Airlines. You can avoid paying for seat selection by accepting the randomly assigned seat at the gate.
United’s and jetBlue’s “Basic Economy” fares do not allow for a free carry-on bag. Only a personal item (like a small laptop bag) is free. Seats are randomly assigned for free prior to boarding. If you have the United Explorer credit-card, use the “free checked bag” perk.
