A good fare for nonstop service to and from Los Angeles. Must purchase by tonight.

The $147 fare is for the basic economy E class fare. Delta E class fares do not allow for advance seat assignment and include other restrictions. Even for those with Delta elite status, none of those benefits would apply. We recommend spending an extra $25 for a regular fare that allows for advanced seat assignments and other benefits.

Below are instructions to search for a regular fare at $172 and for the basic economy fare.
