Now, if it were located right along the edge of the tower that might be a different story. And yeah, those newer rides are super freaky. Not sure what to think about those!  :eek:


yes, i meant those.

So here's the back story to my Vegas trip....I was scheduled to leave Philly the Thursday night before the show.  My flight was oversold, so I volunteered to get bumped.  I was originally in coach class from PHL>MSP, then first class from MSP>LAS.  They rebooked me on the 6am flight out of Philly Friday morning, in first class the whole way.  They also gave me a $300 voucher and $20 in meal vouchers.  The gate agent did not rebook my ticket correctly and ended up putting me on a full fare first class ticket, which just meant that I got an additional 50% bonus miles, plus Northwest is running a triple mile promo for full fare tickets.

Now for the best part...initially the flight I was scheduled to take was about $700.  My wife found the same flight through NorthWest vacations, including 2 nights at the Riviera for $330.  Factor in the $300 voucher, plus the $20 in meal vouchers, and my flight plus 2 nights to Vegas cost me a total of $10!  :smth023

wish i was that lucky... i don't even want to start counting all the expenses of the trip (i've promised myself not to - so don't ask!).

by the way that overbooking must be some US-only kind of thing. i've never come across that in europe: here when you buy a flight ticket for a certain flight then you can count on having a seat on that plane.
i witnessed this on my flight back (washington D.C. > frankfurt): united had seriously overbook that flight, there must have been some 15-20 people on stand-by or something. eventually they had to start looking for a volunteer pilot to take another plane to frankfurt as soon as possible. thankfully i had secured my seat already when i left from vegas - i seriously don't know what i would have done, had i been told to stay on stand-by.
anyway, that is just totally odd and new to me, the way it works over there.

My flight to Vegas from Nashville was overbooked too but they were offering only $100 credit to give up your seat and I wasn't having any of that. Southwest is a little tight with the credits!
My flight HOME from LAX had to bump a couple of people because of the heat in LA that day--the plane was overloaded and couldn't take off! I could have very happily lived without knowing that.
