BMI no longer fly this route since they relocated their A330's to Heathrow. Looked on Virgin Atlantic website, even though Las Vegas is still listed it is showing as no flights available.

One option is Thomas Cook, who have a weekly charter flight from Manchester to Las Vegas.

Other than TCX charters, the only direct flights from UK to LAS are with VS (ex LGW) and BA (ex LHR).

Or if you want to fly from Manchester and change in the US try Delta via Atlanta or US Airways vis Philly.

Thanks for the T/Cook suggestion

Their routes and time schedule shows they fly Wed only.

I put my wed dates in !6th & 23 Feb and it comes back 'no flights on these dates'

Cannot understand why no flights direct, surely there must be a market for at least 2/3 flights per week???

Can you find other flights for those dates? That is still a long way off.

There is no scheduled service between Manchester and Las Vegas anymore (aside from the Thomas Cook charter flight).

The options for a one stop flight are;

Delta via Atlanta

US Airwayws via Philadelphia

Richard Branson was in Las Vegas on June 16, celebrating 10 years of flying into Vegas. Virgin Atlantic is to start flying from Manchester direct into Las Vegas on March 28 next year - is a bit later than you want though.

Another option with one stop is American Airlines via JFK or Chicago. Not the best inflight entertainment but if you book during a sale, can be a steal!

More expensive option also is Continental via New York
