Right now things are a little messy in T-1 with all of the construction going on, but other than that the airport seemed to be pretty decent to me. Once they get the construction projects done, T-1 will be a little less cluttered feeling. It is pretty easier getting to the councourses as well, since the security lines are separated by concourse, and once you get past security, the tram station is right past security. I admit that the concourse themselves may overwhelm some by the sheer length of them, but with there being moving sidewalks on the concourses to lessen the walk, it isn't as bad (I really like the announcements they have on the moving sidewalks, pretty clever!). As for amenities, they have the usual standard airport amenities, but with a uniquely Vegas twist, slot machines and video poker inside the concourses (I did pretty well there while waiting for my flight a few weeks back, put in $25, cashed out with $77, all in about 5 minutes).
As for carriers, they have quite a range of airlines operating into McCarran. A huge majority of US scheduled carriers flies into LAS
, as well as a number of US charter airlines. Quite a few International carriers fly into LAS
as well, as Las Vegas is one of the most popular destinations for international travelers.
The views are pretty good as well; with Las Vegas being in a valley, there are mountains surrounding the area, plus you have the casinos to look at as well, quite a unique mix of architecture to say the least. You really get to enjoy that view if you happen to have the right seat assignment either coming into or out of LAS
. I hear coming in at night is a really great view as well.
