Hey guys I need some help as I have never flown this route before.
My wife and I will be heading to New York City in December on the 25th flying into EWR on CO n/s from AUS to visit the in-laws. We will depart on the 30th to LAS for New Years! What I'm asking is what is the best service to LAS from the New York Area?
Both DL and VX fly n/s. I'm not opposed to having a layover though. How is both DL domestic and VX service, "I have flown neither".
I like the idea of morning flights as I'm a morning guy and wifey a night owl due to her job but I would like to get in no later than 2pm PST. I've booked us at the Bellagio on the strip with a 3pm check-in.
Please advise on carrier/service and best times to fly out of JFK/EWR this time of year.

I can't help you with choice based on service as I have never flown this route:
however looking quickly on travelocity, i came across the following options for you:
US Air $366
The cheapest ones are at night time though. The cheapest mornign departure nonstop is Delta for $331 getting in at 11am
interms of using a one stop:
SunCountry Airlines is $196
United as a good connection for $332 getting in at 3pm
US airways has a nice connection flight leaving around 6am getting in at 11.16 am
Continental also has a good amount of morning flights whereas out of JFK not many airlines have the morning departure.
Continental's nonstop ex EWR isn't a bad time getting in at mid day for $366
If it were me I would probably choose a direct flight to avoid any possible delays/ disruptions due to snow as can happen over the holiday period: So my choice would be the Virgin America ex JFK nonstop for $276 getting in at 1,25pm .. next would be the continental ex EWR ($366) or Delta ex JFK ($331). I have only heard good things from Virgin America - and Virgin Atlantic were outstanding (as was Virgin blue here in Australia).
