Quoting N702ML (Thread starter): Passengers will be able to fly the route on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, creating a perfect schedule for a weekend getaway.
I know that a good way to test a new city out of LAS is to make it a TH/FR/SU red eye for our airline, but I think they should have at least thrown in SA too, given that we are trying to identify ourselves with the NFL (even though WN got "official" status) and since there's a large group of fans from every NFL team in LAS, perhaps you could make the SA night flight work too.
I'm personally excited about it, never been to Tennessee and now I will have a reason to go.
The key will be the aircraft used - will it be an RJ or 319? *Edit - read the article and it will be a 319.

Quoting BatonOps (Reply 7): I wonder what other cities will get service to LAS? Maybe MDT three times a week. I don't think the route would work on a daily basis.
Upstate New York's cities will get service to the HP hubs well before MDT gets it. BUF/ROC/SYR/ALB were some of the larger stations in the former US-East network, with some very strong passenger numbers. The service will come when the demand is sufficient enough to warrant it. I'd expect service to the New York cities within the next few years. Once the bigger cities are connected, then maybe (and I stress maybe) smaller cities like MDT will be looked at. Perhaps US may find a niche in doing that, though only time will tell.

I highly doubt any of the upstate NY cities will ever get nonstop service on US to PHX or LAS, BUF is a long shot "maybe." They are just too small and too close to larger East hubs and focus cities. The E-190 is a small possibility down the road, but I'm sure corporate would rather have them running shorter and more frequent routes than doing just one or two daily near-transcons.

I respectfully disagree. Other than a lone CR7 to DFW, SYR and ROC have no service to the west. LAS would be a nice fit from both cities, as there will be both O&D and many connections to California and the rest of the coast. I don't think the E190 has the legs to make it non-stop, either- especially westbound. SYR was US-East's 9th largest station before the merger, and US still has quite a hold on the Upstate NY market- people will fly them, and people need to go west. I think that a red-eye flight from LAS to both SYR and ROC would be quite a nice compliment to the already extensive schedules from both cities. ALB and BUF both have WN, and the market isn't strong enough to support 2 carriers to LAS.

I can't figure this out......the flight times don't make sense.... anyone else notice a problem?
Flight details are as follows:
Las Vegas to Nashville* Nashville to Las Vegas*
Flight Departs Arrives Flight Departs Arrives
726 11:50 p.m. 5:24 a.m. 727 9:00 p.m. 10:55 p.m.
*Flights operate Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays only
So for examply the Sunday night LAS-BNA flight arrives at 524 on Monday morning.... but there's no return to LAS until Thursday.... like Friday nights LAS-BNA flight arrives on Saturday morning but doesn't leave till Sunday... so this plane has to go somewhere! Its a 124 seat A319 so that means US-West... SO where does this plane come from or go to? Is there a PHX-BNA announcement coming soon?
No it's operated by US East metal...it's their flight number. All the 319's are being reconfigured to 12/112 capacity. As far as were the plane will come from, I have no idea. I imagine our route planners know the answer to that!
