I was looking to book a SWA flight at Christmas. It has kinda become a tradition for us to be in Vegas at Christmas time. Anyway, our options were to leave Milwaukee at 6:45 AM or 2:45 PM. An hour drive to the airport, I figured 2:45 PM. Then I checked return flights for Tuesday, 12/26. Either 5 AM or 7:45 PM, arriving after midnight in Wisconsin. So, we haven't done New Years Eve in Vegas in about 10 years. Leaving Thursday 12/28 at 2:45 PM and leaving Vegas on New Year's Day at 10:10. Much more appealing then getting up in the middle of the night to catch a flight in winter.
