    My Trip Report

    Helllo VMB'ers I am otw my back to Laughlin. We currently have 6 inches of snow on the ground, but it looks like my trip is a go. The plane which is taking us to Bullhead City, AZ (IFP) is currently on it's way to Allentown, PA (ABE) then hops on down to PHL. We will be on IAero Airlines/ Trading as Swift Air callsign "swift flight"

    This is comp via total rewards air, for me and my friend Dan, we just have to pay a $35 admin fee. The junkets are nice as you dont even touch your bags.

    We have a whole floor of rooms with a team of butlers at our beck and call at Harrah's Laughlin (rofl)

    Planning a couple rounds of golf at new courses to me, Haakan, and El Rio. As well as a quick jaunt to Vegas for a day, staying at luxor, where I am looking to burn $100 resort credit on a massage.... Ahhh..

    Planning meals at the Gourmet Room at the Riverside, and Harrah's Range Steakhouse

    Bankroll is what I have left intact from last trip (full, yay) Gambling will be a good deal of quarter level JOB MSP, the 8/5 is the best schedule they have there. I hit 4k on deuces bonus msp there last trip, and I may find my why there.

    I will be in the air for the super bowl... boo.. I have 2 blocks in a $500 block pool that is paying $1000 a score change. Hopefully I'll land to good news!!! See you there!!

    Have a great trip! I ate at the Range on my Laughlin trip a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
    Good luck!

    I'm very curious to hear your experience at Harrahs! That's where we've received offers and flights, but never made the reservation. I'll be following along for sure.

    The Jewel in the Caesars Entertainment crown it is not, but the rooms, while small are clean, the staff is friendly, the steakhouse is great, and all in all the vibe is laid back

    Plane is N624XA, a 737-800 Delivered in December 2001 to Air Berlin, then leased to Oren Air, has been in Swift Air Fleet since 2018.

    I'll let you know how much it was filled up.

    I like Harrah's Laughlin. Caesars Palace it ain't, but it's a cool hotel for what it is.

    Pass line man,

    I'm flying in tomorrow for my first Laughlin junket. I'm a low roller, but given the name perhaps I'll see you on along the rails.

    Good luck! I've always wanted to do one of these Total Rewards junkets, but work, family, etc.

    Too late now, but--we always rent from Enterprise in Laughlin because they will come pick you up at Harrah's and take you to your rental. We make the res online and call them direct at IFP the day of and they have always sent someone. FYI

    When I went on a Laughlin junket last year I rented a car from Enterprise at the airport and arranged to have them pick me up at Harrah's hotel to take me to the airport and back to the hotel after dropping the car off. They arrived at the hotel at the requested time and did not charge me extra for the shuttle service; I did tip the driver however.

    How recent were your experiences with this? I ask because I know I have read from others who visited in the past year or so, that these free pick ups are now things of the past, and people have had to take a cab over to pick up their cars.
