LAX-LAS question

Given a choice between paying full fare for a Economy Plus seat on United or a first class fare on HP, which one should I go for?

It is not a long trip I know. I think I can get into a RCC lounge at LAX with my BMI gold card but there is no HP lounge currently in LAX.

With your Paid HP First ticket you can get into the HP Lounge in LAS.
Also BA and HP are partners.

Wink

I would buy the HP F seat, and credit the miles to VS. You'll also get tier points.

Go HP. UAL E+ versus HP F is no comparison.

Well, it could be a lot longer if you have to hike through the airport to get to the lounge.

I would LOVE to be your date in Verona, but I have to wash my hair tonight.

Seriously, enjoy the wedding and send the Venice FTer's congratulations to Marco and best wishes to his bride. We expect a detailed trip report with photos.
