    Was keeping an eye out on prices from DCA or BWI for 8/15. Lucked out (sorta) and snatched up a O/W for $109. Only downside is it leaves hella early. But I can deal for $109.
     
    Oh yes

    Good for you! With the time changes, you'll have a full day in Vegas awaiting you!

    Yep! Earlier than I like to get in, but I'm not complaining.

    sorry.... there is no such thing as too early to arrive in Vegas. Always a place to eat, drink and gamble.

    There used to be an SWA flight out of Houston that landed in Vegas at like 9am or something. I think it left here around 8am which was early for us but we always loved waking up at home and being in Vegas in time to catch the breakfast special at La Salsa in front of MGM. Now they got rid of that flight and the early flight leaves at 6am which is just way to early considering you have to be at the airport at like 4:30 or so. I miss having a full first day in Vegas.

    Yeah this one leaves at 6:15 and gets to Vegas at 8:15. Non-stop.

    I'm doing something similar next week from CT, leaving at 7 am and get in at 9:30. Get the whole day, the night-time is a little bit of a struggle. I just hope I can check-in early.

    I always look for a flight that gets us in early. Getting up at 3AM is not ideal, but sleeping on the plane helps.

    I am a "first flight out" person. I always book flights that depart between 5:00a and 6:30a - into and out of Vegas.

    Out of Vegas to? :eek: Not us, you just about have to make us leave Vegas. We are usually on the last plane out. We often land between 11pm and 2am when returning from Vegas. Leaving Vegas early in the morning would be like torture for me.

    LOL! Certainly, early out of Vegas too! I am conditioned for mornings as I am up at 4:00a for my work. Besides, I like to travel when there are the least amount of people and lines to deal with. And I keep my Vegas schedule intact so much so, I can bid farewell knowing I will be back in 90 days.
