I am Steven Jones and I am an artist. Exploring new places is my passion. I wanted to go to Las Vegas since so long but thanks to COVID-19 I couldn’t plan it last year. Now, while I am booking the flights, I am confused about which airline to choose for my trip to make it comfortable and safe as I will be travelling alone.

It is only a little over 5 hours for the flight. Nothing like flying to Japan or Thailand. Nothing like a covered wagon from the pioneer days.

Bring a sleep mask to cover your eyes and snooze a little if you think you need it.

Most comfortable would be flying first class or business class. But this is more expensive. I have flown a lot of long flights going overseas in economy and survived unscathed. You should get up and move a little to lessen the chance of blood clots. Most airlines I have been on remind you to get up every now and then for long flights.

What issues do you have with safety? Most pilots take off with the intention of landing alive at the next airport. When I had to photograph plane crashes for the military the most recognizable part was the tail section. Business Class, First Class usually at the front end, just like the pilots.

I choose my flights for convenience to me. I don't like to arrive at my destination in the middle of the night! But I do keep an eye on the cost of the flight. I used to fly a lot, mostly overseas, and chose airlines where I can add frequent flier miles to my account for free rides in the future or free upgrades, etc.

Before you fly get your Covid 19 shots and keep the little card with you when checking in. Flying is picking up again and you will have more choices. Remember to check your seat area for anything you might have left behind. Always check that you have your wallet (and passport when flying overseas) before leaving the plane.

For short flights like NY to California - piece of cake for an old fart like me! I read all the time on long flights. So I always have reading material to me! I do get up frequently on long flights and move a bit because it's the smart thing to lessen the chance of DVT!

So, consider budget and timing in your little adventure. Google type search will give prices and times.

UP to YOU and good luck.

Are you flying to LA or LV? The post title says Los Angeles, but your first sentence says Vegas. There should be nonstop flights to both from New York if that is where you are flying from. I like aisle seats since I like to walk around, good for circulation.

Why not come on back and clear up if you are flying to LA or Las Vegas.

My preference is purchase my plane tickets directly with the airline and not some discounter.

Up to you.

I went to Los Angeles in 2019 by Jetblue airlines and had a great experience go with them.
