    @MeaghanCamilla are you flying out of Toronto Pearson? I'm curious how your travel experience will be - please do share. I've been toying with the idea of booking New Years - prices are incredibly cheap now but still can't pull the trigger. I even have credit on West Jet.

    We usually do 4-5 trips a years - our first this year was to be April. Not sure if we will have a chance to make it out this year....still hoping for our usual October trip....but New Years might be the next best .

    Yes I’m flying out of Toronto Pearson. I’ll be sure to include my travel experience in my TR! The only issue we’ve had so far is with our flights. Our direct Air Canada flight was cancelled so I now I’m flying YYZ-LAX overnight stay in LA then LAX-LAS. On the way home it’s LAS-SFO overnight in San Fran then SFO-YYZ. Needless to say not the most ideal flights but I need me some Vegas. I already did my seat selection for YYZ-LAX as the flight is looking pretty full and no social distancing. I did not want to get stuck in the middle row as it’s 3-3-3.

    I bought extra seats today for my flight so I can be sure we don’t have anyone next to us. Got the exit row, thought about trying to buy the row behind us also.

    @Figment76 - great idea to buy extra seats if the price is right.

    I thought about the exit row but it’s an extra $61 a seat. I picked the right side of the plane window and middle seat right in front of the exit row so there space behind us.

    I'm waiting for all of the foodie restaurants to reopen (é at Cosmo, Twist at Waldorf, etc). Otherwise, no point in going to Vegas when there are plenty of local casinos here in Chicagoland area. As for risk mitigation, you're never going to be able to control other people's behavior. Ban smoking, OK.. But allow drinks on the gaming floor and people will be "drinking" forever with their masks chin-strapping. I wear a mask and a face shield whenever I'm out of the house. It's enough ppe for me to feel safe in any situation, regardless of other people's poor decisions. It works for doctors, so why not everyone else?

    The $22 fares should be screaming loudly that not many want to risk dying or bringing it home to their older relatives.

    Or we can take advantage of the low fares, stay as safe as possible, away from most people, eat carry out or well-spaced and quarantine when we return.

    It all depends on your comfort level and situation. It doesn’t make those of us who go “bad guys”. I don’t want to start an argument, but we should try to respect differences in comfort levels, assuming we are all responsible when we are outside of our homes.

    The lowest fare I see out of Toronto is still $262 I wish we had these amazing flight deals.

    This is very nicely said--I was ULTRA conservative and willing to stay home until I saw how everyone else was acting around me. For the anecdotal group I've encountered in the past 5 months, I must be in the top 5% of compliance. I went overboard on it for a while. I see a shit ton of people doing next to nothing, no masks, no distance, parties, etc. Vegas is probably the safest place I've been since it all started. :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    You both have met me and should know that I respect everyone. I was merely pointing out the obvious reason for the low fares. Heck - even Southwest CEO recently said that fall bookings are not coming back to the anticipated level.

    I really miss going to Vegas but not enough to risk getting sick :)

    My own friends are still going on Aug 11th and I respect their decision to go as they respect mine not to go.

    Everyone has to follow their heart about whether to go :) :) :)

    That's how Frontier pricing always is though. My good gambling buddy has flown them multiple times over the years from ORD to Vegas for as little as $40-50 round trip. Dirt cheap tix, but then high charges for an "extras"

    Absolutely dead. However, a lot of restaurants aren't open those days, so you'll need to check. And don't even necessarily rely on the website; we've had a couple occasions in the last couple weeks where the website said they were open, but they weren't.

    Yeah we got $40 rt (about ~double what @Figment76 paid for same route) booking on nearly this exact date 2 years ago. I really don't see how Frontier makes money, even with all the fees. Sorta sick it costs more to fly your bag than you though. Lol
