RE: Spirit - it's a bargain if you're short and if you either check a bag or travel light. Paying for a carry on is crap, and having the least legroom of any carrier is also crap. I'm 6'4 & I literally can't sit down on some of Spirit's planes.

RE: spring fling - The wife is IN!! Just booked flights. In thurs evening, out tuesday evening.

I'd expect most things to happen Saturday. Sounds like the plan is lunch > museum> dinner/meeting > gambling/socializing. Not sure about the hike or escape room. I think you'd be in good shape to plan to leave LV on Sunday - you wouldn't be the only person leaving that day, so most events should be done by then or others would miss them, too...

Have you considered driving to LA? the drive is hardly longer than the shuffle through the airports would be, you can go at any time, and the car would be cheaper than the airfare even with the potential one-way drop fee.

Neither my daughter nor myself have drivers licenses. We are New Yorkers!

Its one hour flight to vegas. And prices are between $40 and $76 depending on day that weekend.

I flew delta and I believe they were charging for carry ons and seat choices as well. Maybe not a carry on but definitely seat choices. I dont mind paying for a carry on when my flight is only $49. My aunt last year decided against a $34 flight and went with a $179 southwest flight all because of paying for a seat and bag.

On this trip since it is only 4 days we will both bring a back pack and be good with that which is considered a personal item so it is free.

yay that your wife is in. I think that will make 4 woman. They can sit at the end of the table and socialize.

That is such an odd concept to people that live outside of the East coast.

What borough are you in? I can understand Manhattan, not so much Staten Island without a car.

To New Yorkers, it's an even odder concept that people willingly live west of the Hudson and east of the TMZ.

Im queens. My daughter is Brooklyn

The train is 2 blocks from either of our houses.

I can get most anywhere in NYC within an hour at anytime of day

During business hours driving that same distance could take upwards of 3 hours. Its literally bumper to bumper traffic in Manhattan.

Driving thru the Lincoln Tunnel between 5 and 7 pm is usually a 90 minute debacle (about 10 minutes at 2 am for comparison)

Imagine 8 million people all travelled simultaneously... in a city the size of Burbank

Or the distance between the strip and downtown
