    Went to San Diego zoo just last month. You and your kids will love it. I have also taken a harbor cruise well worth it, IMO. Have a great trip! IMG_4070.jpeg IMG_4065.jpeg

    So the flight shows up a delayed by 55 minutes on all apps/websites, but only arriving about 10 minutes late at LAS. I’ll take that if it is like that.

    Weird to see they put the delay into the system as early as 10 hours ago. The plane is already here for quite some time - I arrived 1.5 hours ago, coming in from Tokyo Haneda Airport.

    I’d love to know what the reason is.

    Unlimited! :D

    I’d say a known delay of a ‘feeder’ plane. This is Europe after all (well not really, but UK retained that rule) , where they pay every passenger €600 if they miss their connection. Arriving about an hour late, they don’t pay anything.

    Flow control and ground traffic at Heathrow, average departure delays are currently 47 minutes and decreasing, but they already set your block time.

    fyi, amended eta is now 20:40 in LAS.

    Have a good flight!

    Thanks. Aircraft is boarding now. Found a good tv show I want to see already, when we’re in the air. If you always fly the same airline (KLM), the movie selection is refreshing if you change it up.

    Other than stopping at Kelso we didn’t have any real plans - just enjoying the scenic drive.

    All checked in at Cosmo. Went to ABC for a few drinks, ordered room service. We’re all taking a shower then eating and off to bed afterwards.

    Got a Lincoln Navigator - very comfortable ride!

    Had room service late last night

    a052731f-d32b-4216-bc09-363286773182.jpeg

    We finished 90% - the leftover chips are now car snacks for the kids :)

    Actually very decent food.

    My oldest joined me on a walk to ABC in the Miracle Mile, to get some drinks for the roomservice, night and this morning. I think she didn’t know where to look first :D

    We all went to bed at 1:40 am. I was wide awake at 5:30 am.

    Going to Henry’s in a bit. Have a reservation at 7:30 am, tried to push it back a bit but if I try to do that 1:15 pm is the earliest showing option so will stick with the original plan.

    Oh and visit the players desk - I was supposed to have the $250 platinum dining credit attached to the reservation but front desk couldn’t see it.

    Check-in yesterday was great. I had the platinum tier night offer for a city room booked, with an upgrade for $39 to a City View Terrace Studio.

    The lady wanted to give us a Wraparound for the night (I explained we’d be out by 10 am or so the latest), but I needed 2Q beds since my daughters are traveling. In the end all 2Q beds available were in Chelsea, but she did waive the upgrade fee on the room and we are in a Terrace Studio.

    She went out of her way, even said I can also do 1 king and send a rollaway bed free of charge to your room. Despite not getting the suite because I declined, I tipped $20 for her way of treating us.

    Welcome back to Vegas:)

    Yeah, you have to go to players desk to get them to attach the $250 to your room. Its dumb, but I do it every time. I think only the people with hosts don’t have an issue lol

    Have an awesome trip. I’m returning to Vegas from Wisconsin soon. Will see you and your family when you return back:). I love these wholesome family trips!
