    You can pick the extended dates from the calendar past Jan 7, but they don't have the schedules behind them loaded yet.

    Your welcome, someone usually does it, I just happen to be looking for my feb trip. Good rates but hotels are still high for that far ahead. And the resort fees are getting really annoying!

    Some time prior to April 20, 2016. That's the first booking date I have where it was $15.

    Hello :)

    I haven't been to LV in a few years so I don't know if the $216 non stop one way with Southwest from Buffalo is a good price for February 2018...to book or not to book??

    Thanks from Toronto

    $216 isn't any great deal, about average. I've been watching the non-stop prices for a trip in September and I've seen them as low as $189. I keep hoping I can get both flights for that price but no luck so far. Getting a little antsy as we're usually booked by now.

    Yes that is what I was hoping for too...I will jump all over a $189 price ;) for me I need to factor the exchange rate so the lower the price the better...I will be checking the SW website multiple times daily...thanks for your input!

    We don't have SW from our main airport, but just checked MSP for our flight to JAX in Feb for our cruise and the Daytona 500. While SW has a much cheaper flight, we also have to factor in the park/sleep/flycosts plus mileage. But, I do like the flight times much better for this trip. Still thinking we are going to do the SW flight. Thanks for posting.
