    Flight leaves at 10:25 AM and arrives in Vegas at 12:20 PM. Those are my kind of flight times. I don't have to kill myself getting up in the middle of night to get to the airport. Plus TSA pre-check. The later non-stop you don't land until 6:45 PM and the day is gone.

    The other non-stop option is leave at 6 AM. My brother & SIL are on that flight tomorrow. I think we would have to get up at 1 AM for that flight. They live a lot closer to the airport than we do.

    SWA is not consistent on their flight times. The mid-day non stop in April is 1:25 PM

    Good numbers on the flight out, hope the rest of the trip works out as well.
    I got the 1:25 going out of MKE in April would prefer a 1025 time. No way I could convince the better half to fly out at 645.

    Good luck on the trip.

    I do that 6 am flight out and love it. But I'm 15 minutes from the airport.

    Good luck, Joe, sorry I'll just miss you out there. I'm on the same flight out in a week and a half. I bought early bird fare too, so, hoping for roughly the same boarding space.

    Early bird or manual check-in? Either way, it's good timing. Have fun. Eager for your follow-up.

    It's EB. I have come to the rationalization that considering how much I lose (sometimes win, but mostly lose) in Vegas, what the heck is another $60 for two people and round trip EB. Not worry about the 24 hr thing etc. I forget all about it one time when we didn't have EB and we ended up in C60 or something. Anyway, I never want to have the last row next to the crapper again.:thumbsdown:

    $60 is 12 hands of $1 VP, so why sweat the details.

    Takes so little to please me. MSP finally has one non-stop on SW each day. I was astounded when I saw it (and hopefully it's not just a trail)! Unfortunately I can't get it on the way out (have to work till noon & it's 2.5 hrs to MSP for me) so I am forced to endure the 5:30 flight with a layover in Kansas City (I SWORE I WOULD NEVER LAYOVER THERE AGAIN!). No offense to those who live there but I did NOT like that airport. Don't get to Vegas until around 9:30 - ugh. However I grabbed that non-stop on the way home so I don't have to even head to the airport until noon! Hopefully those 6 extra hours on the last day will help with the loss of time on the first day lol.

    Have a great trip!

    We had a good run at MKE, but lately, the prices at other flying options in Illinois have been beating out SWA out of MKE. Too bad, I miss that airport.
