    I feel like a total newbie with my stupid questions but I'm meeting up with my BFF who is coming in on Southwest. My flight lands about 30 minutes after hers and I'm on AA.

    I've really never noticed but is the baggage claim area all the same - all terminals funnel into one? If I tell her to meet me at baggage claim by the taxi transportation do you think that is easy for a Vegas Virgin to understand? She has to pick up a checked bag.

    I don't want her to get lost. When I land on AA it's like autopilot sets in and I don't even think about where I'm going - I just GO. I'm not sure what the trek is like if you're landing at the SW terminal.

    Thanks in advance!

    They have a free shuttle that goes between terminals. I actually had to use it last week. For some damn reason I got on the wrong one from the car rental place and ended up at the wrong terminal.

    AA and Southwest are both Terminal 1. Give her your flight # and she can meet you at your luggage carousel.....since she lands before you.

    That is perfect. I didn't realize they were in the same terminal. Hopefully that means she can't get lost!

    She can stand there with a sign with your name on it like the limo drivers.

    You will come into different concourses but the same terminal. Fortunately McCarren has one luggage claim in the terminal. She can hang out at the liquor store or play slots while she waits.
