AMS LAX out 20/12/13 return 6/1/14 for £2067 club world.
UA same dates BRU LAX via ORD for £1986.

The BA flights can be booked as open jaw for same fare.

BA will book via telephone or any ticket desk as cannot book open jaw.

BA fares even ex GLA or EDI are cheaper at present than anyone else… least on ITA matrix and you may feel the trip to AMS is not worth the saving of £500 each.

With a decent agent or helpful BA ticket desk you should be able to swing the AA new 777-300 ex LAX on a BA code if tier avios are important. This service leaves quite late and will have the new product. SFO is a great airport to arrive in as immigration queues tend to shorter.
