    i booked a few days ago to go out to Vegas with Virgin on the 28th April to 14th May.
    Flight was £312.50.
    Gonna wait a few weeks before booking a Hotel as fatwallet and other sites hopefully will have some offers on.
    But at the moment you can get the stratosphere (ok far end of the strip) for 50 dollars a night.
  • Watching this with interest - I'd like to go back in Mid October (for a couple of weeks), London Airports are my preference, where am I best looking for flights (just the virgin atlantic site or do others fly direct?). I'd prefer not to do a package as I will stay in the area for a couple of weeks (probably 4 days in LV and 10 days elsewhere!)

    looks like Virgin have a january sale on till the 23rd. here are the details

    £284 05 Jan - 31 Jan 07

    £304 1 Feb - 28 Mar 07, 06 Apr - 30 Apr 07, 01 Nov - 09 Dec 07

    £439 29 Mar - 05 Apr 07, 01 May - 30 Jun 07, 20 Aug - 31 Oct 07

    £609 01 Jul - 19 Aug 07

    expect a few add on charges on top of that i think but if the differnce is say only £50 i.d go with the Virgin flight BAZ simply because it is direct. That said AA would be better seats ect.

    i think it is prudent to say to ALL Book the flight first if you see a great price and worry about the hotel after...you will get somewhere whatever happens

    just in case it was missed http://www.lasvegastalk.com/index.php is a great resource for hotel deals. free to register as well.

    i have also opened a similar thread to this one on the LVtalk flights threads for cross referencing .

    here is the hotel thread on LVtalk forums ( will need to register to view)
    http://www.lasvegastalk.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewforum&f=14

    i was particually intrested in the thread in which a guy got a room at the Alladin for $99 a night from a site called https://www.hotwire.com looks similar too priceline (maybe same site with differnent skin) . anyone know if it accepts UK bookings ect. i like the way it tells you where your unknown hotel is situated as you can narrow it down to what is in that area.

    :cool:

    BMI fly direct out of manchester about twice a week last i checked. only problem with this it Restricts the actual amount of days you can stay for.

    also a new Business class only service out of stansted but i doubt it will be within this sites price range.:lipsrseal :lipsrseal

    personally i,m not to fussed about direct or not this year. Price is my major concern. i would love this kind of deal
    oh and I forgot mytravel direct from manchester approx 11 hrs we paid £300 for 3 of us last year
    that was £300 for all 3 by the way.

    as posted by MAESMAESMUMMY in one of my OP's links.

    this is of course a game of nerves i can afford to wait to last min as i have flexiable dates and a major holiday booked , so if i miss out not to big a deal . however i understand that others are not in this position and need to strike at the right time or risk not going or paying more.

    PS - this came down to £432 - that's a ridiculous price for virgin flights and mirage accomodation.

    er, this should have quoted post 3

    has anyone stayed at the imperial palace?

    At the moment it is the same price as the Strat but it is centre of the strip.
    Out of the two which would you go for?
