I am thinking of flying to Las Vegas from Los Angeles (LAX). Here in europe we have these really low budget airlines. I am sure you have those in the US too. Can anyone give me some tips to find cheap airfare from LAX to LAS? Or maybe one of the other airports in LA is cheaper? I found Americain Airlines fare for about 98 dollars. Is that reasonable or is that expensive?
Thanks for your help!
Cheapest flights would be on Southwest Airlines. Sign up for their "notices"--also known as "Ding"--when they send out listings of what's on sale for the next few weeks (from what location to what other location). You should be able to get a fare for $39 each way using this service. (Though it's tougher on the weekends to get tickets on advertised specials).
Or even better, rent a car to drive from LA to Vegas...it isnt a far ride and then once you are in Vegas you have the car to take a drive to the Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon too.
I'd recommend car trip to Vegas. It's only 4 hours or less on Mojave desert but there are some nice places on the way. Most people don't like to drive on desert but there are some advantages for a first timer
