    To the OP: I am a fan of Thai food and I can tell you that Lemongrass is pretty great. Not as great as Lotus of Siam which is my favorite, but still very good. I definitely should check out Blossom next time I am there.

    Journey down was a lot longer than expected due to multiple accidents on the motorway.
    However I always allow loads of time so wasn’t too worried.

    Check in & security was fast took a total of 10 mins.

    Had some lunch at the seafood bar and bit of shopping for the duty free face cream etc

    Nice slice of cake & glass of bubbles in the lounge now waiting for our gate to come up.

    So far flight is all on time :)

    I second all of this. Hit the lounge early and often, and eat at Blossom its the best restaurant at Aria. Enjoy your Sky Suites vacation!

    Those seats look pretty comfy! Much more so than what I have sat in on Frontier or SWA :rolleyes:

    Safe travels!

    As an FYI, as a guest of Sky Suites you can also access the Tower Suites Lounge. While smaller and with less options, it is much less crowded. It also has a coffee/hot chocolate machine, something the Sky Suites Lounge lacks.
    Also of note, if you want to really live big, see if they have any Villas you can upgrade into. You get unlimited use of the house car within a 4 mile radius of The Strip, butler service, and an even nicer suite obviously. They aren't cheap to upgrade into, but its a lot cheaper than rack rate.

    Arrived safe & sound. Very smooth flight. Managed about 6 hours sleep so helps a lot with passing the time.
    Super quick through immigration from leaving the plane to getting to baggage 8 mins this is unheard of for us. Then only 10 min wait for bags and straight into the limo!
    Why is travel not always so easy!

    Checked in I had requested a suite with a window in the bathroom. Told we had this, taken up to the room on the 38th (which is the lowest floor for sky suites) and no window in the bathroom. Our concierge asked us to wait and he would go and see if he could move us.

    15 mins later he returned with keys for an upgrade to a panoramic suite on the 55th floor with a window bathroom so winning already. Gave him a tip to say thank you :woohoo:

    Just having an amazing dinner at Jean George will update later :)

    For airplane food it wasn’t bad!

    Lay flat bed definitely aids sleep!

    Shellfish platter MrO was very impressed

    DD4DE191-31DC-479B-AC92-5F5A6EB71042.jpeg

    Spinach, mushrooms & fries. Fries were too salty for me but everything else was great.

    After dinner headed to casino to pick up our mlife cards. Quick spin on wheel of fortune which was good to me.

    Back to the room FaceTime the kids they all survived the first night without us.

    All unpacked and still awake at 1.30am so fingers crossed for a good nights sleep and beat the jet lag straight away!

    Night night

    Urgh hour an half sleep and I’m wide awake :cry:

    Apparently I’m so used to surviving on little sleep my body doesn’t know how to cope with an uninterrupted night of sleep anymore.

    Did get a cute picture of my son at the childminder so good to know he’s happy :love:
