    Plus fees, taxes, baggage charges (even for carry ons)… You’d be lucky to do a round trip for less than $100. Plus, you get to Vegas and either shell out tons of cash on taxi’s or on a rental car, or slum it and take a bus??? From LA?? No thanks, Spirit. I’ll drive… even with $5.00 a gallon for gas, it’s still a better deal.

    You have to join a club for $60. Why bother with Vegas when you got Casinos out here in California? I don’t get people sometimes. it is a lot closer going to Morongo or Pechanga that wasting 4hrs in a car to Vegas.
