British Airways returned to Vegas a couple of years ago, operating a route from London Heathrow.
Well it seems BA want more of the leisure market, with services to commence from London Gatwick.
The service is schedule to begin on the 29th October, running as follows three times a week:
BA2277 DEPART LGW 11:30 ARRIVE LAS 14:05 BA2276 DEPART LAS 15:55 ARRIVE LGW 09:45+1 Operates from 29/OCT/2012 Operates Monday, Wednesday, Saturday both directions Booked Equipment: Boeing 777, 3 Class Equipment
The plane is booked for Three-Class Equipment, operating Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller (Business, Premium Economy and Economy).
Those of you who want First Class, or a proper widebody can still use the London Heathrow to Las Vegas, operated with a Four Class 747-400 with BA First, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller (First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy).
This also brings British Airways and Virgin Atlantic into direct competition on the same route.
