Despite being informed that our original flight would be delayed, the staff for United were extremely helpful and managed to get us onto an earlier flight, so we didn’t miss our connecting flight to Sydney.
The flight itself was quick and uneventful, the way I like them.
As far as airports go, McCarran International Airport, is like any other airport. It houses all the expected facilities – security checkpoints, food outlets, gift stores, bathrooms, charging stations etc. However, there are a few features that I have not seen before in an airport including; a hand sanitiser station (great idea), a prescription and recreational drug disposal bin (albeit, this is outside the main entry) and poker machines (how very “Vegas”). I noticed these during our wait for our flight to Los Angeles.
