How many gates does HP use at LAS during it's late night bank of flights? Do they have enough space? What are the CRJ's and CR9's using?? Regular gates or are the pax walking to the a/c??

Looks like HP will gain a gate or two when AS moves to "D"???


You mad Bro???

I have been there the last two Tuesdays one time to RDU, next time to CLE.

Taxiing on, it seemed that HP used all B and most A gates. Some of the RJs used jetways, and some were having pax use airstairs then stairs up to jetway. The CR9 I was on pulled up to the jetway, but they could not get it to work right, so we ended up using plane stairs then walk up to jetway.

I also saw 3 or so HP planes parked at the C gates along with WN, but I am not sure if they were using the gates or they just parked a/c over there until they were to go out later.

I think that HP's red-eye bank at LAS is very popular. Not only America West uses most of its gates but other airlines use their gates as well. I am not sure if LAS has more red-eye flights than LAX?

Yeah the red-eye flight in Vegas are always VERY full every night of the week. It's a very convenient time for already exhausted business travelers to get home for work the next morning with the chance of sleeping on the plane. As SprxUSA said, we do use all of the B gates and most of the A gates for our red-eyes, we have one to just about every city that we fly so that takes a lot of our planes. I took a red-eye to Baltimore Tues/Wed on a very full flight. The B concourse for HP was just packed at 11 at night.

Business travelers? Not in Vegas. Big grin

The red eye flights are very popular. I would have to say the east coast flights are full more often then the west coast red eyes. There is indeed a lot of business travellers on the flights, however most are connecting from other cities not originating in LAS.

LAS has more red-eyes than any other airport in the US (if you're only counting domestic flights). I don't even think it's close. I work the overnight shift and watch red-eyes to see which routing they use. LAS seems to have at least 2x as many red-eyes as any of the other West Coast Airports. What is also surprising is that DEN only has like one red-eye. SLC only has like 3. LAX is the only airport that comes close to LAS.

Actually with 1 million+ people living there and Nevada's Tax breaks, there are some business travelers from Vegas.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of conventions in the Las Vegas area...many times, it is business folk that are attending these conventions, and they need to get into LAS somehow (and for many folks, driving isn't an option).

That wasn't his point. Wait until you're 21. You'll understand.

as per the traffic flow, most flights operate with a X236, meaning they dont fly in nor depart on tues, wed and sat, the least traveled days out of vegas. hp fills most their gates on the other nights, and with southwest also moving into the hp concourse, all gates will probably be filled. hp wants all crj900 to park with a jetway, but not all vegas hp jetways are ready yet, that is what i was told mar16 flying in from burbank, when we were given a gate that we had to deplane, walk down and out, and then back up again. hp wants all crj900 pax to have a jetway, and then the crj200 flights will fill in the holes at other gates, and then have to park on the ramp and be bussed in. loads are high usually on the hp night flights, simply given that hp has the vacation dept to fill most those flights, for an upgrade usually, meaning more money, pax can book a daytime flight, but they try to stick to and fill those night flights. i miss being elite and flying first class to the east coast when hp offered a night meal service, but even moreso, at least offered entertainment on the night flights.

I flew the LAS-PIT red eye on HP Wednesday night and my flight was full. Departed from gate B24. All the flights in that area were red eyes going back east.

I understand there are millions of people come there just to gamble, I lived there 11 years of my life and saw that, but my point was that there are a few business travelers, and as DeltAirlines said, convientions that usually bring 150,000+ people are common in Vegas, so again, most are leisure but there are quite a few business travelers there also. Other than the strip and the casino's Las Vegas is just like any other town. 200,000+ kids go to school there, people buy groceries, go visit family and friends, and of course religion is pretty big in LAS due to the mormons.
