Last Monday, I flew Southwest into LAX using runway
6R. Before then, I always landed using 24R. Why did
the airlines takeoff and land into the east on that
particular day?

The direction that airplanes land depends on the wind velocity. Airplanes should always land into the wind unless it is less than 5 knots or so (possibly higher for airliners). All airports have designated "calm wind" runways that are used when the wind is below 5 knots, and this is why airplanes usually land on 24R/L and 25R/L at LAX.
