Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:

Hello From Las Vegas! The Stardust has confirmed November 1, 2006 as their official closing date. They have been moving some employees to other company owned properties and are providing generous severance pay to those staying with the hotel until they end then retiring.

The plans for the building? Rumor is hot and heavy regarding a New Year’s Eve implosion, but nothing yet formally announced yet. As usual, you’ll know when we know!

Our friend Scott Whitney of the Living In Las Vegas Podcast got a nice mention in a recent news article: Hello out there! Podcasts can put your messages in the right ears. The article contains links to both of Scott’s great podcasts. Well worth a listen.

Members Mania – We Love Our Readers!

Readers WriteHello ,

I look forward to receiving your newspaper and finding out about all the changes in Las Vegas. My husband and I love going there for holidays the only complaint we have is that there are NO DIRECT FLIGHTS throughout the year from SCOTLAND. We only have direct flights for around 6 weeks in the summer which we did use last year. After that we either have to get a flight across to America then get an internal flight to Las Vegas or fly down to Manchester or London for a direct flight from there. By having to do this it adds a lot of journey time onto your holiday and especially on the return journey it is very tiring. Having to do this puts us off coming on holiday to Las Vegas. Even if there were to be one direct flight per week from Scotland I am sure it would be filled as we know a lot of people who do travel to Las Vegas and they also find it hassle with all the extra traveling.

I don’t know if you can suggest this to the holiday companies and see what type of feedback you receive. I know if the traveling was to be direct then we would visit oftener than we do.

I look forward to your reply and thank you.

Anne Rodger

Ted Responds – Anne,

Thanks for reading and visiting when you can. I know it is a LONG way to fly.

Airline flights are partially supply/demand and partially based on how many flights various governments allow between their countries. The best thing you can do is contact airlines that serve your area and specifically ask why you don’t have various direct flights to the U.S. that would be of interest.

Outside of a non-stop from London a few days a week (Virgin I believe), virtually everyone has to fly to the U.S. and then change planes. If you find out anything from airlines on your end that would be of interest to our readers, let us know. We have many readers in Europe.

Live From Las Vegas,
