Go! Go! Gadget! Vegas!

Well, it's early to be planning it, but it's back to Vegas time.  Since Aki wants to do the Miss America pageant again in January of 2009, I'm already having to start the plans for our trip.  So far, we've got the tickets and the hotel reservation goes in tomorrow.

This time we're moving hotels.  Instead of the Imperial Palace (which isn't bad, but is old) we're going to the former Barbary Coast, now Bill's Gamblin' Hall.  The pricing is about the same, but is closer to Planet Hollywood.  It's a small hotel, which means it's usually overlooked by the bigger places on the Strip.  But smaller also means a little more relaxed in my mind.  And relaxed is the goal for this trip.

The airline tickets this time were interesting to get.  Usually we take Southwest, since they tend to be both a) cheap and b) reliable.  But for some reason this time, their pricing was way out of line from what I could get from American.  American offered two round trip tickets from New Orleans to Las Vegas for $458.  Southwest?  $701, and that's the lowest prices I could find on their site.  So we're going American, despite having to sit in DFW for a while.

Viva Las Vegas, Baby!

Does that $458 on American include your per baggage surcharge, your seat surcharge, your breathable oxygen surcharge, snack surcharge, and your landing surcharge?

*snicker* Actually, it doesn't include the baggage charge. Which even with the $30 for myself and Aki still makes the tickets much cheaper than Southwest.

Think we'll be able to stay at the Mirage now that we got the offer?

Besides, we can have a nice dinner with the 2.5 hour layover at DFW.
