Via Airfarewatchdog, there is a fare out there on Turkish Airlines for travel between Los Angeles and Mumbai (round trip), which is pricing out only at $785 for Economy travel. There are quite some dates available in February 2014.
Just turn up on www.turkishairlines.com and look out for the fare with various dates within the specified dates above. While there are $785 fares, there are also other fares for a little upwards of $800 in case the lowest fare does not work for you. I’ve usually flown this route at an average price of $1300 on other airlines in the past, so it looks like a great deal coming if you’d like to fly over to India.
And while you are at it, if you have status with another airline, you could also get a status match with Turkish Airlines and get lounge access at their Istanbul Lounge and hope for better treatment at their hands.
