I fly PHL-LHR a few times each year. To be fair, I do have some flexibility as far as dates go.

Not necessarily. It's highly day, date, and flight specific but it's not uncommon for LAS flights to sell out F with real paid demand.

When I've not bought first, I'm not sure I've ever cleared an upgrade to/from LAS. Of course a lot of my LAS travel has been during peak demand periods (March Madness or a huge convention).

Bottom line - LAS is a strange market that sometimes punches above its weight for paid first.

I never fly during those times and stay far away from airport during CES, March Madness, etc Generally fly out on tue and home on thur for biz travel. Sundays are a mess at that airport (outbound)
