California/Las Vegas Airfare Wars

While this post doesnt have any direct relation to the MAGLEV but, in a way it does.  Over the past few weeks there have been a rash of short-haul pricing wars with flights leaving the LA area going to LAS.

  • Southwest has been selling fares for $30 one-way with round trip after taxes and totals to about $80.00
  • Allegiant, American, US Air fought back with total costs of $55 round trip.
  • Spirit undercut them all with $1.00 fares* only on Tues/Wed, after taxes just shy of $40.00 for round trip.  *(however, we could only find fares for $10.01)
    • Spirit also has recently announced a new flight schedule between LAX and LAS. 11:15/14:15/18:50/22:00. With additional flights on the weekends. 
So with these recent airfare wars going on, it will be interesting to see how the Maglev ticketing will need to react to these wars.  However, keep in mind with the Maglev being able to leave every 10 min or so, theres no need to worry about when or if you will be late getting through security.

Keep Flying On The Ground!
