    Damn! I'm going to Vegas next week! Not that this deal would help, but I paid a lot more than that!

    •  

      Yep, I am going in a month (on the way to skiing at Tahoe). Wish this deal was around 3 months ago!!! Any good deals spotted for things to do in Vegas?

        looking for that as well

          Best list I've found so far http://www.travelzoo.com/au/search/?q=Las+Vegas%2C+NV&search...

          I've been to vegas loads of times previously but I dont gamble and despite all of the hype, Vegas is very expensive.

        •  

          @2ndeffort:

          free drinks while you pretend to gamble? Unlike Crown I hear Vegas casinos offer patrons free drinks for the most part?

        •  

          @friedrais: man that's BS, they know ever cent you have in your pocket, and probably every cent you have in your bank account. They know even how much you crap in the toilet, they arent going to give you anything unless its to their advantage.

          Also if you do happen to scrore a drink you are expected to tip, as is the custom in the US. If you dont then dont be surprised if the wait persons don't reappear.

          @friedrais: Played at $5 blackjack table for 2 hours, tipped the waitress $1 per drink she brought out to me. She kept them coming every 10 minutes without fail. Extra $12USD for her over that time for doing her job, she would've had about 30 customers on 5 tables that I saw doing the same.

          Came out $25 down on blackjack, $12 down on tips and have 12 Johnnies. I would say that's better than what it would've cost me in an Australian Casino.

          This was in Caesars for your reference, not sure if the same in other casinos there.

        •  

          @friedrais:

          As long as you tip the waitress $1 each time she will keep the drinks coming. This goes for all casinos.

    Is AA a full service on international ?

    • +18 votes

      AA is like riding the bus.

      •  

        number 10 or 99 ?

        • +2 votes

          I saw a guy ask if he could get a drink, they said "no" and walked off. It's seriously like riding the bus, there is nothing WRONG with it per se, but the attendants are literally there to help operate the flight, you are of no concern to them other than dispensing food and drink at the designated time. And all US airlines are pretty much the same.

        •  

          @LoopyLou: Behind the thin layer of fake sincerity there is a no-nonsense process they stick to. To explain, I've been on a flight from Vegas to Denver where one of the hosties sang a song over the PA and most of the plane clapped (she was good). This seemingly genuine moment was offset 5 mins later when she was dragging a huge bin liner down the aisle whilst we all tossed our garbage into it, couple next to me had bought a couple of KFC buckets before they jumped on and had eaten them during the flight, they had trouble reaching across with their enormous KFC rubbish heap!

        •  

          @LoopyLou: I flew BA from Germany to Australia over Christmas… honestly they're not much better. They don't refuse to give drinks, but other than at the designated meal service time the crew are like ghosts. I slept through the meal service, so when I woke a few hours later I went back and asked if they had any snacks or food. I was amazed - no food outside the meal service (on a 14 hour flight!!).
          The 1-leg of the trip on QF was bliss!

        •  

          @muncan: LOL. There was probably some gluton free vegan low calorie salt reduced sugar reduced meal there, but they took pity on me and let me eat air Instead (same nutritional value an probably tastes better).

    Last time we flew AA (last year) we had a free business class upgrade.. you can try your luck..this is sooo cheap.. except for the tanking AUD..

  •  

    Thanks for this. Potentially needing to go to Miami in a month. Looks like can do $800 to LAX and then book LAX-MIA separately.

      Insert MIA jokes here

    •  

      flights to miami will be a fortune. try getting to vegas or utah on these cheap AA fares then going to miami from there.

        Ended up finding cheap flight to Atlanta for $768. Return from Atlanta to Miami is only around $300 which is a lot better than the $500 from LAX.

      •  

        I flew spirit airlines from Vegas to Miami for a dime and half a hot dog.

        •  

          yeah from vegas Spirit are pretty good. Crappy old planes and often cancel flights but really cheap.
          Spirit flight from LA to East coast are tough and usually have multiple connections if I recall from last time I tried.

    Does AA run these flights or is it Qantas ?

    Has anyone had any experience in American Airline international economy? I can't find many reviews online, and the ones I can find aren't great…

    • +2 votes

      Basically it's one of the worse carriers (as American ones are).

      From personal experience Delta is better than AA which is better than United.

      That said… United have just refreshed their transpacific fleet though with 787s and when I flew on Delta to LAX it was a very old 777 (domestically though I've had great experiences with Delta).

    • +2 votes

      I have found Delta to be much better than American Airlines.

      And I have also found Delta to be crap compared to Qantas or Virgin Australia. They have somehow managed to make the seats on the American planes just that little bit smaller.

      But this flight is a bargain. It's like one of those cheap flights on Scoot, which I would say is as good as Delta, to Singapore and so on.

          You either need a better job, or you have way more annual leave than 4-5 weeks saved up. ;)

        •  

          @Lukian: Yeah was contract hopping for a couple of years there. Never took leave during any of the contracts, had leave paid out at the end of each job.

          That said, I'll be in my current job for about 2 years when I go on holiday, so will have more than enough leave to cover me.

  •  

    Geez i really want to book this but for the life of me i CANNOT see where the seat selection is? It just goes to payment screen? Every other airline i have flown with has had seat visibility and selection options during the booking process/before payment. Does this airline not do that? You're just expected to blindly book?

    • +3 votes

      Per LoopyLou above. Like riding the buses. Bring exact change only. LOL.

      •  

        Syd to LA looks like new 777-300s like jetstar etc. they are tolerable providing can pick your seats…

        •  

          what seats would you recommend?

        •  

          @86boy: Check SeatGuru and see which seats are recommended + people's comments

        •  

          @Daniel15:
          i have - apart from the 'paid seats' and the obviously shit seats, every other seat would more or less be the same?
          i am travelling with a group of 4

        • +1 vote

          @86boy: Yeah it's mostly all the same. Try to avoid seats near the toilets, as people tend to congregate near there while waiting to use the toilet, so there's lots of traffic. Don't pick the row directly in front of the exit row, as those seats normally don't recline. Also don't choose the very last row of seats, for the same reason.

          People towards the back of the plane are usually allowed to board sooner, but on the other hand you'll get off the plane quicker if you're closer to the front. Exit rows are nice due to the extra legroom, a lot of airlines charge extra for them now though.

    Fare expires tomorrow, so get in quick. Also available to Atlanta, useful for those looking to get to the east coast instead.

    Thanks bro!!! Just booked 5 tickets to EDC!

    Who are everyone booking with?

    IWTF pushes you over to a number of sites, some with the lower prices are pretty obscure -Booktopdeals and Skytours. Also checking with major sites and AA direct these fares are not seen.

    Where as cheap flights (not as cheap as these) being offered by AirNZ (around $990) show on their site as well as others like STA, bestjet and wotif

    Madness - Just booked LAX return for $754 in May. Mad props to the OP.

  •

  •  

    Ah bugger seems I misssd the boat on these can't find any availability for around the $800 mark anymore :(

  •  

    We've been planning a trip to the States in May, waiting for a good deal. The Mrs was a bit iffy and wouldn't give me an answer until this morning. Finally gives me an answer and it looks like it's expired.

  •

  •
