This is the second one you have stated refuel that doesn't are you obsessed? It most certainly doesnt refuel in LAX virgin do not fly the 747 to LAX and why would they fly an hour passed vegas to refuel
Seriously have you actually looked to see what the dimensions of the hand luggage are. You'd have to be hopeless not to manage it. Many people fly for a week's business , it's the once a year traveller who can't get their heads around it.
Its no wonder they have to stop at LAX for refuelling (excited) (lol)
I use the VA flight a lot to Vegas from Gatwick..... Defo don't go east! lol , and it don't stop anywhere either! Its direct, with our average flight going out to be around 10hrs 20, and last week the flight coming back, we did in just over 9hrs....... £280 return with handbag on the date listed, or £340 with suitcase.... I've done hand luggage before, but means buying all toiletries in CVS which aint cheap!!! Good find, Heat added... Although, between Nov to Feb, those flight prices sound about right anyway (max £400)
