The Party starts: Arriving in Las Vegas

by Moderator June 2010 - last edited January 2013 by Community Manager

Yesterday (or today still for those of us here) we flew across the Atlantic to Las Vegas - a celebration of ten years of flying to the city. The flight was a goodun' - a party atmosphere, fantastic crew and the great and the good on board.

When we touched down at McCarran International we were met by the Mayor of Las Vegas, a host of Elvis lookalikes, showgirls, and of course, Dita Von Teese. Here are some photos from the obligatory wing walk and a walkabout on the tarmac:

As if by magic...
