Traveling situations clarified:

Play 1 - A1 jumps into the air and catches the ball. She returns to the floor by landing on (a) her back or stomach OR (b) her knees.

Is this legal or a travel?
It sounds too uncomfortable to happen very often. She jumps up, meaning that she was standing to begin with. She grabs the ball and then lands on her knees? Who cares about the travel or not? This girl won't be playing any more basketball this season!!
