Welcome, Air Berlin and hope enjoy for your stay. Hope the route will be successful. AB will have twice-weekly service through October 22, 2012. This is only for summer seasonal.

This is great, but AB's website needs lots of work. First of all, after you have managed to find the nonstop LAS-DUS flights, you will then be quoted fares in GBP, outbound from LAS are on the order of £290-330 and the return flight is £590-650, and then the website tacks on a fuel surcharge of maybe 50%. Not sure if website programming errors are responsible for (a) the discrepancy between the outbound and return fares or (b) the exorbitant fuel surcharge. If you click on "special offers" you can at least get the outbound fare without the fuel surcharge.
Actually what I would really like is an AA codeshare from LAS-DUS and return from the aa.com website (or a cheaper one) and assurance that I would get AA EQM for the route.
Addendum: AA.com won't find the LAS-DUS nonstop, either on AB or as a codeshare. AA only credits 25% of miles unless you are in V or better, good luck finding the fare basis (you won't on the AB website, or on priceline, expedia or kayak). You won't find AB at all on travelocity.
