There are no sales.
Just keep looking at some of the Internet sites like Kayak, Expedia, and Priceline (to name only a few) to find something within your budget.
Try other airlines like JetBlue, Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa, that sometimes offer better deals.
I know of no sales, nor any specific time that sales occur. It's different every day, sometimes every hour - prices change.
You can use the web sites mentioned above like www.kayak.com to send you price alerts via email when there's a good deal available.
You can even sign up here on TA for fare alert emails. Just enter or originating and destination city(ies) and your email address and TA will send an alert to you. (You can do that with the other sites, too.)
Also, keep in mind that Thursday, 28 November is our Thanksgiving holiday. For many that turns into a four-day holiday weekend and it is unequivocally our busiest travel weekend of the year. Period.
Airports, railroad stations, and roads will be jammed with people that Wednesday and Thursday, and again on Sunday and Monday. Bad weather usually hits a major transportation hub somewhere in the north (NYC, Chicago) and causes further travel woes that can ripple across the nation with delayed or canceled flights.
You don't say when in November you'll be here, but I recommend doing everything you can to avoid traveling during that Wednesday through Monday period.
If you are here during that weekend, make your reservations NOW.
By the way, the Friday after Thanksgiving is our biggest shopping day of the year and it kicks off the Christmas shopping season with huge sales that will pack shopping malls and discount stores. People will line up at midnight to be the first in line when the store opens at 6 AM. It's pure insanity. :-)
I hope you can find a good fare and enjoy your trip.

It's all about supply and demand. If there is an upsurge in sales for the LHR-LAX route, prices will climb. Two days ago, i was looking at flights in late December. Yesterday, fares doubled on that route -- on all the airlines.
Don't give up, though. Sometimes, that raise prices in expectation of high demand and then reduce them later when sales fall short. in other words, pull out your crystal ball.
