After a wild weekend fare war from Friday through Sunday, the state of low fares on Monday morning from Los Angeles looks like United is last airline/alliance standing after an air battle over Europe the past three days. The remaining markets in the $600s show American and Delta dropped out of the fare war in most places, except American still has Germany, Switzerland and Benelux region with fares still in $600s for travel from November 2016 to March 2017. SkyTeam is back to Aeroflot low fares as the only carrier for most European airports in the $600s.This contrasts to dozens of cities all across Europe in the $600s yesterday from LAX from all three major airlines. Looks like this fare war is in the final stages for LAX.
United still looks like it has the California regional airport Iow fares, like $600s for Monterey to Paris. American appears to have dropped out of the regional airport weekend fare war when many airports in Spain and Portugal were priced in the $600s.
At the end of this post are many articles I posted this weekend with fare war details from across the USA.
These are low fares I see Monday morning for Los Angeles to Europe. American Airlines flyers can still find low fare deals to Spain and many other countries in Europe on American and Oneworld from San Francisco.

Frankfurt FRA $689 American Nov 7-16
