    My Trip Report

    Being a member for a while now, I figure I'd do a live TR. I'm not much of a writer so expect short posts and more photographs.

    To provide context, I'm traveling to Vegas today, September 8th for a 5-day, 4-night trip. I feel like you can't enjoy Vegas with any less time.

    Whereas my previous trips were planned, this trip is completely open. Save for a show tonight, I'm not doing much.

    Oh and this is a solo trip!

    First post: I arrive at JFK to find that their accepting volunteers to change their fight. No thanks -- I'm trying to get there as early as possible.

    The Linq is asking me to check in online but I want to tip my way to late check-out... Apparently you can't get it otherwise.

    Flight isn't for anther 3 hours. I wasn't expecting 3 people in the security line lol.

    Since I am a big Snapchat fan, I'll likely be posting pics from there so don't mind the caption

    I'm going to have to give eggslut a try when I get to Vegas. While good, I don't think this egg sandwich Snapchat-8420542047986061933.jpg was worth 13 dollars

    Delta. I have up on American when they stopped late night flights back to JFK. Unfortunate because I had accumulated a fair number of points

    After a long three hours, I'm on the plane. Excited to let the posting from Vegas begin Snapchat-4175386944011581208.jpg

    Argh, they offered 1300 Delta dollars, meal credit and guaranteed seat for the next flight in 4 hours. I should've taken it but someone ran up. At the very least that pays for my next Vegas flight in first class

    Depending on the routing, anywhere from 4.5 hours to 5.5.

    If you weren't in a hurry, you should have thought about taking the offer. I was flying to Florida on business in March and would have been early for an appointment anyway.
    When they made the offer of $500 Delta dollars for a 1.5 hour delay to the next flight, I grabbed it. And yes that and $42 Canadian is paying for my November trip to Vegas.

    Just landed! 5 hours later and twenty five minutes ahead of schedule. I got some practice on the plane too! And I'm glad I didn't take the later flight. I have a show at seven. Although for 1300, does it even matter?
