BA or Virgin to Vegas?

The McCarran airport is the only airport in Las Vegas and many excited people land here every day and many sad people go back every day.  British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are the main airlines that fly directly to LAS (McCarran airport) every day from London airports.  Prices tend to change regularly and we at VipandVegas advice you on which one is the cheapest at the time.  We do have people who only want BA or those who only want Virgin, so which one is for you?  Here are some useful tips on both airlines from our guys at VIPandVegas who have travelled regularly with both airlines.
