What is the largest aircraft type LAS sees now?

Wed Apr 17, 2019 11:50 pm

Since VS does not send their 744 anymore here it has been lacking in VLA. I can only think of the KR 777-300 off the top of my head. Anyone know? And a bit of fun-- can an A380 land here?

(Apologies if I sound really dumb, I'm still not super well versed in Aviation)

According to flightaware, BA still flies the 744 between LAS and LHR.

Generally speaking since it's leisure traffic overall light I'd say. It is probably higher than alot of leisure places though. I think it's a city that can stimulate demand and get a premium for a N/S. High for a leisure city, but low compared to a business heavy city I'd say.

Vegas is probably more than anywhere different based on the week, day of week, city the route is serving. On a Friday from LA premium demand is probably heavy on a Sunday going to Vegas probably super low etc etc.

Generally speaking I think the A380 was designed to operate on the same runways as the 747. The true limiting factor for the A380 is taxi clearance.

At least the G-CIVO G-CIVY and G-CIVK British 747s were there last week. The Wednesday flight was delayed till Saturday, with the passengers waiting those days in hotels paid by BA. The cockpit smelled too much of an electrical fire that crews refused to fly.

BA sends the 747-400 daily with the "smaller" Business Class section:

F 14

I'd imagine Vegas would have a bit more premium demand than most other 'Leisure' destinations with the amount of trade shows & conventions that go on there.

I think parking slots and jet bridges also were a big factor as well.

Thanks guys. Out of curiosity what does an AN-225 require? I have done a bit of research and apparently an AN-225 visited LAS in 2004. What was it doing? And where on earth was it parked?
