I am exploring possibilities to get from Los Angeles to Boston. So far I have only found flights arriving before midnight and including a long layovers (4-6 hours) some where in between. Since I am a bit flexible, I could consider other airports near LAX and BOS. Is there a listing for direct red-eye flights in the US?
I'm not sure there will be such a website, as there are so many flights, and they change seasonally.
I've just done a quick search on the ITA Matrix, for direct flights from LAX to BOS on a random Friday a few weeks hence, direct flights only, leaving after 9pm:
Excluding code shares, that's 5 different overnight direct redeye flights from LAX to Boston to select from!
It has been 4 years now, and more options have emerged over the time. I’m answering hope it will help other travelers on the route. Nowadays, travelers can avoid layover with nonstop red eye flights with JetBlue (B6) and Alaska Airlines (AS). United (UA) and American (AA) also operate nonstop flights.
Check this page listing some best nonstop as well as connecting red eye flight options. You may also run a new search to get one as per your convenience. From ONT, a nearby airport (40 miles from Los Angeles), you can also find options.
