    My Trip Report

    Couldn't pass up $38 Including tax roundtrip non stop from milwaukee (frontier). I received the green light from the wife and will be doing another 24hr trip to vegas. Some people say im crazy but if i can do it, Im gonna do it. Staying at the Monte Carlo for $33 plus resort fees. Arrive in Vegas at 9:30 pm this thursday aug 25th, fly out at 11 pm that friday night. I can still do enough damage in the time frame. More to come!!!

    Good offers, plus the blessing of your wife? You'd be nuts to not do it!
    Happy travels and I look forward to a rundown of the damages!

    Good luck pal. Same deal from PIT in sept by Frontier but my gambling funds are a bit low. Hoping they offer again for October. The last couple 4 day trips haven't worked out for me. 24 hours should be ok. Don't have to pay for a carryon or check a bag, personal bag is plenty enough.

    For those that don't know, past few weeks Frontier had some one day $19 fares sale. Last week was on Wednesday, this week was on Monday. Good for about a dozen different dates through Sept. Mostly Tuesday and Wednesday flights. It's a good idea to book it anyway. Buy your seat and bag when you're totally set on going. If you don't go, you're only out $38.

    Agree Frontier is great. I fly Frontier exclusively from Denver to Vegas. My trip in on Sept 5 cost me $48 round trip and I haven't paid more than $69 in the last 5 trips. You just have no know their fees (Which there are lots) but they can be avoided by packing light and letting them select you seats.

    Richard, if I have to go back to Vegas to locate another lost VMB'er, I will catch the earliest flight I can!
    Now that would be a fun job!!!!
