Las Vegas used to feature tons of cheap flight. Airlines had more capacity then, and Vegas seemed to always have some rock-bottom prices.
The Flight Deal is reporting $226 round-trip fares from DC to Las Vegas on United Airlines.
If you’re looking for super cheap, they also have a Basic Economy fare for about $175 round-trip.
If you’re not familiar with Basic Economy fares, these are fares that come with restrictions like no advance seat assignments or carry-on bags.
American used to consistently offer $200 round-trip fares from Philadelphia, but folks in the DC region haven’t seen much in the way of cheap flights to Las Vegas lately. That’s a route I travel frequently for business. I can tell you it’s been a long time since I’ve paid $226 round-trip.
If you’re not worried about things like seat assignments and full-size carry-on bags, those Basic Economy fares really can’t be beat!
