British Airways Adds Las Vegas Flights

British Airways Las Vegas flights will start operating this winter with the first flight in time for a half term holiday to Las Vegas – the 25th October. The flights will be from Heathrow ( LHR ) to Las Vegas McCann ( LAS ).

In punntastic style BA said :

We know how to fly high rollers in style and we will be the only airline to fly non-stop from Terminal 5. It is the ace in our pack and we are going to play it for all it’s worth.”

The new service will operate daily using a Boeing 777 offering three classes, including BA’s new Club World option with fully flat beds.

Las Vegas has always featured on my list of places I want to go – even though I’m a pretty clean living guy !

The Five star Palace Las Americas is next to the 4 Star sister hotel the RIU Cancun, guests booked at the Las Americas are able to use the RIU Cancun but not the other way round.
