    Southwest adding Des Moines - Las Vegas route!

    Beginning September 29th, Southwest will have a daily flight to Vegas. Finally, another connecting city besides Chicago! Woohoo!

    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    But yes, it'll be nice to have this option. It will also keep Allegiant honest on their prices too.

    Re: Southwest adding Des Moines - Las Vegas route!

    The downside of the Allegiant flight was it typically departed Vegas early in the morning. I'd rather have a later departure and still have some usable time in Vegas on my last day.

    Re: Southwest adding Des Moines - Las Vegas route!

    Is there not a DSM to DEN flight? That should give you a lot of connections...

    Yeah, I've had to deal with that before too.
    I basically just stay up all night then and hope to get some sleep on the ride back home.

    I am flying Allegiant on April 1st out of CR I arrive at 10pm, then I leave at 2 pm on my last day so it pretty much wastes 2 days for me.

    Re: Southwest adding Des Moines - Las Vegas route!

    This is a huge accomplishment for Central Iowa! Southwest said all along that their route from DSM to Chicago Midway was on a "trial basis" meaning that we needed to show we would use Southwest or else they wouldn't expand or maybe even lose Southwest all together. So happy to see Southwest expanding again in Des Moines in less than a year!

    I know Allegiant has seasonal service to LAX and US Airways has service to Phoenix and United has service to Denver but otherwise there isn't much out of Des Moines that goes west.
