L1011Lover, it would be the most wonderful trip. The entertainment in LAS
is the best in the world. I've seen Siegfried and Roy twice. I was hoping to see them again, but, alas, that won't be possible.
Nothing in LAS
is very expensive unless you lose a lot of money gambling. The weather is beastly hot in the Summer, but you're never more than a few yards from an air conditioned building of some sort. If you ever get the chance to go there in the winter, do. In the winter, LAS
feels like the islands. It's just a joy.
I'm not surprised to hear that it's a very senior, very much sought after trip. It would be at any airline. Those week long layovers would be just wonderful. That is such a marvelous thing for you guys to have.
US crews have bounced around all over the place in LAS
. The last place we stayed was the San Remo. However, there was some kind of problem with it and the crews have moved again. It seems like we move every two or three months in LAS
. Some of the hotels have not even had restaurants.
It sounds like your hotel there is nice. Good for you. It's good that you are happy with and like staying there.
For a long time the FRA
crews stayed in Weisbaden at the Crown Plaza at No. 8 Banhoff Strasse. However, they have moved in the last few months to another little town there (I can't remember the name of it just now -- sorry
) I loved staying in Weisbaden. There is a little restaurant called the Clock Tower that has the most wonderful cream of potato soup in the entire world. A bowl of that, a salad, some bread, a glass of wine and you have a meal. The also serve an absolutely outstanding roast pork loin. I think it's the best I've ever eaten.
Right now, I cannot remember the name of the hotel in Munich. It's an older hotel, but very nice. If you walk out the front door, turn right, go to the corner, turn left, and cross the street, you walk directly into a shopping area. If you turn left in front of the hotel, go to the corner and turn left again, you find three automobile dealerships right in a row. A number of airlines house their crews there. I can see everything about that hotel, I just cannot remember the name.
