When I was leaving Vegas on 108 degree day Monday, I used the outside checkin for SWA. When the guy said Gate C I asked if there was an easier way than the new looooong hall to C. He said to go in and to the right, up the escalator and a right to gate C. And take the tram. Woohoo. I did and when I got to security, most of it was Gate D, but all the way on the right is 1 lane for C. There was only 1 other person (an employee) going through at the time. E It was awesome, right to the tram, off then at the gate in a second.
