When Tikay talks about things being pensioned off, he knows what he's talking about.

Not 100% sure on this, but I think the VA flights from Gatters move across to Heathrow from the end of May, & the VA 747's on the Vegas route will then be Dreamliner 787's, with the 747's being pensioned off. 

If they ever get them fixed  Wink

4500 Virgin miles for spending £150 at Heathrow.

There is an article online somewhere about how the BA service is good, but the cabin layout and age of the cabins is beyond ridiculous.

I think the article stated that due to the insane value of the Atlantic slots BA hold out of all London airports, they are guaranteed to fill the business cabins regardless of how old and battered they are.

Qatar business class is incred, particularly enjoy the travel prayer before take off. Inshallah!

No idea what you nutters are talking about with the flight times.
Surely the current 3.30pm land at 9.30am is by far the most body clock friendly, and why would you want extra time in Vegas on your last day when you have 0 dollars left!

You'll be glad to hear they just pushed the return flight time back another 1/2 hour Cheesy

That looks pretty grim; reward flights seem both pretty hard to come by, and cost way more miles than I have this year.

I wish the WSOP would get their schedule sorted soon. 

Norweigan could be FTW this year

I'd hope they'll have at least one window with better prices in early 2019.

When did it come out last year? Was it early January?

I think they come out between about now and end January.  They don't even seem to have announced the main events either.

The whole virgin atlantic sale seems pretty crap.  Every flight I have looked at seems way more than the sale price. 

I forgot Norwegian had issues with travelling to Vegas in the summer, so guess I should prepare myself for £1500 premium economy flights when the schedule comes out (BA is about that price too).

I'd be hopeful you'll be able to snag PE for a grand or less at some point.

The Big 50 is a must play event for poker players.  To celebrate our 50th, the WSOP is making everyone’s initial entry into this event rake-free.  All $500 of the entry will go entirely to the prizepool.  (Anyone who re-enters pays the normal rake, including re-entries into another flight).  The Big 50 features four starting flights (ThursdaySunday am) where players begin play with a whopping 50,000 in chips and play 12, 50-minute levels on Day 1.  The WSOP has a $5 million prize pool guarantee, as well as ensuring the winner claims $1 million for the Big 50. 
 
“We’re excited to commence our golden event,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart.  “We expect our opening weekend Big 50 event to be one of the largest in our history, and certainly one of the best value tournaments ever offered.  This is part of our concerted plans to make the 2019 WSOP a better value all-around.”
 
New wrinkles and more additions will be announced with the specific event schedule in the New Year.   
 
A record 123,865 entries participated in the 2018 WSOP, creating a 49-year high of $266,889,193 in prize money. The average WSOP gold bracelet event in 2018 had a $3,421,656 prize pool with $655,337 going to the winner.   
 
The 2018 WSOP featured huge field sizes once again in signature events, with the Main Event (7,874), Millionaire Maker (7,361), Monster Stack (6,260), Crazy Eights (8,598), Seniors Championship (5,918) and Colossus (13,070) combining to attract a staggering 49,081 entries. The majority of these signature events return in 2019, with the addition of a new opening weekend huge value event to help usher in the 50th running of the WSOP – the Big 50. 
 
Buy-ins for tournaments at the Rio will start as low as $70.  Single table satellites and all your favorite live poker games: low, medium and high limit will begin on May 28 and run 24 hours a day throughout the seven-week series taking place in the spacious Rio Convention Center for the 15th consecutive year.
 
Room reservations are being accepted across Caesars’ Las Vegas properties with rates as low as $33 for existing Caesars Rewards members.  Visit Las Vegas - WSOP to make your room reservations for the 2019 WSOP.  Individual event online pre-registration won’t open until March/April, after all events have been determined and approved by regulators.
 
Nearly 500 poker tables will be set up across more than 100,000 square-feet of ballroom space to accommodate the thousands of players from around the world who attend poker’s annual Woodstock.
