Just booked - leave a week on Monday!

Had to share, I'm so excited and have never booked this close to departure date! As I'm waiting to start my new job I thought I'd book a sneaky trip to my favourite place.

Thanks to copious use of air miles, I'm flying Virgin Upper Class LGW - LAS on 31/03 and back on US Airways/BA First Class (I'll be ruined for life!) on 05/04. Staying at Aria again on a Mlife comp/MyVegas combo.

If anyone's going to be around and would like to meet up for a drink, let me know and I'll start a meet and greet thread.

Hi Mark, thanks! I hope you are well.

I started idly thinking about it after my December trip, but started seriously researching flight awards as soon as I got offered a new job! Then I found out my start date yesterday and had booked everything within a few hours of that call!!

I am now researching restaurants as I want to try to eat at all new places again (with the exception of é which I just have to go back to).

I still can't quite get my head around it that I am going so soon. I often book almost a year ahead to use miles.

Thanks Cas.

I shall definitely be writing a trip report. Re first class, I'm slightly ashamed to say that I haven't travelled economy long haul for over 10 years. I normally use miles/points to either purchase or upgrade to business class. But I'm sure it's going to turn me into a business class snob!!!

I look forward to your Trip Report, I loved the last one. I am going on Tuesday 25th, 7 nights, flying from Florida on Southwest Airlines, we go three or four times (we live in Florida 6 months/London 6 months) so it is so much easier and cheaper to go from Florida, 5 hours as opposed to 10 and half hours. Have a great time and good luck on the slots! Viva Las Vegas.
