    Nothing from the North-East/Mid-Atlantic! Not one! How about at least a token city in the area with the largest concentration of US population?

    "No shows will not result in a wait-list and seat will go empty"
    - Interesting because no doubt, this being free, people are going to book before it's gone and THEN figure out if they can make the rest of the arrangements. Due to that, I would expect a significant number of no shows. Maybe it's a natural way of holding down the cost of the promotion, if the airline isn't going to make them pay for the unused seats.

    I am totally guessing here but judging from the cities listed, I would say these are Allegiant and SW flights. Nice gesture!

    As Las Vegas begins to welcome visitors back to the city, one CEO has found a creative way to help reignite tourism.

    Derek Stevens, owner of the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate hotel-casino, will give away 1,000 free flights to Las Vegas from more than 20 major U.S. cities.

    Stevens’ “Keep America Flying” promotion is intended to help stimulate the tourism and airline industries while reminding the country of the fun to be had in Las Vegas. Participants can book a seat by

    signing up here
    . Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.


    “As we begin to reopen our doors across the city, we are proud to help reinvigorate travel to Las Vegas while supporting airlines in America impacted by the COVID-19 crisis,” said Stevens. “We can’t wait to safely bring visitors to the city and remind them why we’ve earned the title of ‘Entertainment Capital of the World.’ And while we’d love for visitors to stop by Downtown Las Vegas, we primarily want to get people back to Las Vegas to experience the attractions and amenities that make it one of the greatest places on Earth.
