Prices not too bad for next summer. My old man just got prem both ways for a grand.

I'm not sure exactly when I'm going to be coming back yet, so haven't booked.

Will depend on how many nights Wynn/Palazzo will comp me, if at all.

Mr T, your time has come  Wink

Following a social media story which went viral, about a Virgin Atlantic passenger who gave up his Upper Class seat for an 88-year old passenger in Economy, Virgin has decided to run a special campaign over Christmas.

Between today and 1st January, Virgin Atlantic will offer an upgrade to the eldest customer on each of its flights.  This doesn’t automatically include the rest of the family group, although I am sure the airline will be accommodating where it can.

Ha, incred. I must be in with a shot? Trouble is, I don't look old, they'll think I'm about 50.

Some pretty good prices for Vegas in the BA sale.

Myself and a mate have got a week in Flamingo in a 2x Queen bed room, with return direct (!) flights and luggage for under £1k for us both. This is going mid November.
On the same dates another friend (whom Tikay knows, he wins the odd comp or 12 every night next door) is staying at the Venetian for a week with his missus, think that was £670pp.

I believe she was delighted when he broke the news to her that I would also be there on their exact dates and flights Smiley

First thought was Grumps, but he never wins comps, so must be Palace Bloke. I'd have thought he'd have travelled First Class, or Business minimum.

I think he's slumming it with peasants like me, despite his vast wealth.

I could get a flight for the dates I'm planning in December for £600, which isn't bad. Have to wait for the HGS dates to be announced, so hopefully won't be much different later in the year.

I just bought 100 k miles for £1500 and used my airmiles 170 k to book upper to Vegas in September £1300
Total spend £2855.32 for £7 k of flights
Equivalent to full price in PE roughly ?
We have PE to Vegas in June and upper on the return already
You can only buy 100k every 12 months

16th had to take the Rio as it was the only one with £150 deposit.  It was cheaper with the hotel than it was without somehow! Already booked a comp room at Park for a few days to escape....

We might well cross paths when there.

If you see a tall, athletic, sober, extremely good looking young man, that rules it out as being me.

Can get Aria for 7 nights on 19th September and Flights from Edinburgh via Gatwick for £2200 for 2.

We also get $40 per day to spend on Food and Drinks

Couple of Questions.
1. That a reasonable deal
2. Is the Aria decent
3. How do they give you the $40 is it a card.

Thanks

1. Have you got a list of prices for other resorts to compare to for the same dates? (Presume RFs to be added?)
2. Aria is great.
3. No idea, but presume you just get $40 RC daily to spend on food/drinks.
