I'm looking to go to LAS around 3rd December for 7 nights from a London airport. I'm wanting to fly on a B747 but I think the only direct option is with VS for over £400 rtn. I don't mind going via another airport to get to LAS, but does anyone know the best/cheapest option to fly on a 747 to get to LAS? Thanks in advance.

The only airlines that fly to Las Vegas directly are Virgin Atlantic, as you said, and Japan Airlines. (I think) Other than that, you could fly on a 747 across the pond as LAS has service to most major US airports. Either way, enjoy your trip!

According to what Orbitz shows neither AF nor KL would fly the 747 at that time (Dec 3 and Dec 10, respectively). A variety of other airlines and aircraft but 747 seems to be a rarity. So, your options seem to be:
- LGW - LAS with Virgin Atlantic, $713 (with VS you can also fly via LAX/SFO but that's more expensive)
- LHR - LAX with Aiz New Zealand and then to LAS with US Airways, lowest $783
- LHR - LAX with British Airways and then to LAS with US Airways, lowest $773
