When we got to the airport on Sunday morning, there was one of the longest check-in lines I had ever seen. I told my brother I was glad we had checked in online, because we would only have to drop off our luggage, and we had also checked in our luggage online.

On Sunday, my brother and I were to fly LAS-ATL-RIC. On Saturday morning, I paid to use a computer at the business center at my hotel so I could check in online. This was so that I could get seat assignments for our AirTran flights, and to avoid waiting in the check-in line at the airport. When we got to the airport on Sunday morning, there was one of the longest check-in lines I had ever seen. I told my brother I was glad we had checked in online, because we would only have to drop off our luggage, and we had also checked in our luggage online. We couldn't find a place to drop off our luggage, so I walked up to the business class check-in person and asked her where to drop off our luggage. She said we would have to wait in the coach class check-in line with everyone else. I told her we were already checked in, we just wanted to drop off our luggage. She said it didn't matter, we would still have to wait in that line. It took forever to go through that line just to drop off a suitcase. What then, is the point of online check-in?

I'm flying LAS-MDW-LGA on ATA. LAS-MDW is by WN. Can I use ATA's website to check in? Or do I have to check in at the WN counter?

There was just something about waiting there longer than I had at LAX, DFW, or any other large airport.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 10):|
LAS is one of the largest airports in the country, so I am not sure what you are comparing it to

Flyinghippo--are you without luggage on your return trip? 'Cause WN doesn't
|Quoting Iowaman (Reply 2):|
For business travelers that have no luggage, they can bypass the check-in counter and head for security (and yes, there are actually busienss travelers in LAS, even though it's a small percentage).

I don't know that I'd make a trip to Vegas just for pleasure--the thought of walking up to a slot machine or table game and saying "Here, take my hard-earned money and give me absolutely nothing in return" isn't as appealing as I thought it would be before I turned 21. (On my most recent trip, I did make 25%, though [Dropped $2.00 in spare change in slots, 'won' a total of $2.50])
