A Small Vacation from St. Louis to Las Vegas - Outbound

Hello folks, this was my small trip from my hometown St. Louis to Las Vegas on Southwest Airlines Flight 2013. The flight was smooth departing from St. Louis. But as soon as I approach to Las Vegas, it was extremely windy and had a wake turbulence landing into Las Vegas. Also, there was runway changes departing from St. Louis and arriving to Las Vegas. So here go the pics of my flight today.

First Flight: Southwest Airlines Flight 2013 - St. Louis to Las Vegas ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
Aircraft: Boeing 737-700
Origin: St. Louis Lambert Intโ€™l Airport (KSTL)
Destination: Harry Reid International Airport (KLAS)
Flight Time: 3hrs 30mins

Welcome aboard Southwest Airlines Flight 2013 nonstop service from St. Louis to Las Vegas at Gate E14 St. Louis Airport.

Taxiing to RWY 12R due to wind direction change. I expected to taxi and take off RWY 30L but due to the changing of the wind direction, I wounded up turning around and going the opposite direction.

Flight attendants, prepare for takeoff as we enter RWY 12R.

And we are off to Las Vegas!!! Goodbye St. Louis!!! See you tomorrow!

Here we go banking to our right as we head west en route to Las Vegas climbing out of St. Louis, flying over Creve Couer I guess.

Cruising @ FL380 as we fly over Colorado ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ whilst the flight attendants coming along the cabin serving us Pretzels and a choice of drinks which in this case, I chose sprite.

Three hours later, we begun our descent where everyone is expected to be seated with their seatbelts fastened as we prep for landing in Las Vegas

On final RWY 26L for Las Vegas Airport. Wonder how windy it is in Las Vegas. Sooo gusty in which I almost passed out ๐Ÿ˜ต. Just kidding, I controlled a crosswind landing at Las Vegas for safety arrival. Bear with that. We are arriving to Las Vegas with gusty winds up to 20 KTS

And like I said, we landed safely in Las Vegas as we were about to cross RWY 26R to taxi to our arrival Gate.

And we are here in KLAS airport at Gate C12. As you can see, you literally cannot have a better view of the aircraft parked at our arrival gate in which you have to go towards the window on the side of the airport to snap a shot of our aircraft. Whatever, welcome to Las Vegas and Iโ€™m headed to Baggage Claim and then taking a cab to the hotel to spend a little vacation.

And that completes my little trip vacay down to Las Vegas. Hope you loved my shots and looked through them. Have a blessed night and be safe.
