Via Airfare Spot you can fly Los Angeles – Delhi for March and April outbound departures from $472 roundtrip.

This fare has a $200 change fee, and is bookable with airfare metasearch site Momondo but it’s broadly available for just a few dollars more:

How low is this? It’s a $65 base fare in each direction between the US West Coast and India via Asia.

Meanwhile bia Fly4Free, using Momondo, Washington Dulles – Mumbai should be available for January – April travel from $593.

However the lowest price I’m seeing for this is $611:

I’m seeing New York roundtrips for $659.

Travel is on Etihad, and out of New York you can fly on the Airbus A380.
