A very belated trip report but thought it was my duty to share after enjoying so many of yours! The trip was from Friday to Thursday, first two nights at Aria, last four nights at Encore. Iâ€™ll post as replies. Not off to a good start I live in Brooklyn, about 12 miles from JFK airport. My sister agreed to drive me to the airport for my 10:30 AM flight. We leave the apartment at 8AM. Whatever could go badly, went badly: All the garbage trucks were out at the same time and stopping cars dead in their tracks, traffic on the local streets, then on the highways, and we got lost. We got to the airport at 9:50 and it was too late to get on the flight. The next available flight was at 4:30PM. I had to wait until 1:30 to check in, and the area of the Delta terminal where I was did not even have a bathroom before security. After basically working 16-18 hour days for a long time, I was not a happy camper. Flight was fine--nothing to report, except for a wonderful eavesdropping session on the loud guy behind me who was trying to impress his seatmate. He got so drunk that he fell asleep on her lap. Landed at LAS and for the second straight time, we had problems de-planing. Both times, in fact, they couldnâ€™t hook up the jetway to the plane. It is not a fun feeling landing in Vegas, seeing the Strip and being stuck on the plane for an extra half hour! We finally deplaned, I got my bag right away, there was no light at Alamo and I was off! Iâ€™m going to break up the rest of the TR into categories--as it happened back in November, my memoryâ€™s fading a bit so I think itâ€™ll be most helpful to recap the highlights.
