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.
