    Vegas plans

    FYI for those of you who haven't made your plans yet to Vegas, we just found a flight out of DSM through MSP to LAS for $239.50 each!!! Just as I had almost given up hope, we found this flight. Hop on board if you were holding out for a "cheap" flight. 2 cons here would be the trip is Thursday night thru a tuesday red-eye 1:05AM getting back into DSM at 8:35AM Tuesday.

    We ended booking our flight out of Omaha after giving up on Des Moines. The 2 hours we spend driving over to Omaha are being made up by taking a direct flight to Vegas on Southwest.

    Is that $1,000 for both you and your dad or is that $1,000 per person?


    I removed it.

    Sounds like NYNY is where all the fun is going to be.

    The forms were supposed to be sent in by last week, I think. But, sounds like most people on this site are buying through the UNLV ticket office to get better seats. Sec. 108 seems to be the popular area.

    Re: Vegas plans

    I realize this isn't for the Football game week, but I just had to tell everyone.... I got tickets for 4th of July weekend out of Cedar Rapids direct flight to Vegas through Allegiant for $33 round trip. That is $4 there and $29 back....$33 ROUND TRIP!!! UNBELIEVABLE! The tickets are now about $300, so I obviously booked at the right time.

    I wasn't even planning on going to Vegas that weekend, but couldn't pass up that offer.

    You all better take laptops or the traffic on this site is going to decrease drammatically.
