Warning.. I'm a boring old lady so this isn't a wild ride or full of amusing stories. But I hope it is informative and may provide some info someone could use. I used to take 3-4 trips a year but things at home changed so now it is just an annual trip. I did take a cruise and a trip to Atlantis but it just isn't Vegas. My birthday (June 1st) isn't usually this close to Memorial Day. Due to the timing and graduations it ended up as a solo which is alway fine with me. I normally fly Delta but took American because of the cost/schedule. The planes (A319 & 321) are really bare bones. No power or entertainment. Changed in Charlotte which is much easer than Atlanta. Had the best FA ever from CLT to LAS. I fly first class. After take off she gave a little speach to first class saying she would come around to find out what we wanted to eat and drink and she would make sure our glasses were always full. If we don't want more to put a napkin over the glass. She stood by her word and it was a great flight. I had the vegetable ravioli for lunch which came with melon and prosciutto appetizer and a pretzel roll with lemon pie for dessert. Apparently this was one of the former US Air planes. I was ticked off at Presidential last trip as they were rushing me as soon a I arrived and tried to tell me I didn't have time to drive around the strip. I told him that was crazy. He had a real attitude but did it anyway. When I called to make a reservation I explained the issue last time and asked to book a time rather than for a specific flight. They didn't apologize for the bum's rush last time and refused to book for a time. So I called others and found Omni willing to do it. It was fabulous. Had time to stop in the bathroom, freshen up, put my iPad and headphones away in my suitcase to check it at the hotel and pick up a few splits of bubbly at the Liquor Library before meeting my driver at Starbucks. He was great. I asked for a ride around the strip and he took me all the way downtown and back. It was a great ride! We chatted about Vegas changes, best restaurants and current shows.
