It takes about 1 and a half hours from the time you leave Las Vegas (LAS) to reach the city of celebrities and celebrity gossip, Los Angeles (LAX). In that brief flight time you will have covered 288 miles. Airlines offering a direct route include: Southwest, Delta, America, United, and Spirit, offering between 29-33 a day.
Be sure to take the usual precautions when searching for a low cost flight like avoiding holidays, weekends and of course, also trying to book far in advance
Los Angeles is famous for its sprawling size. Although this means that there is plenty to experience it also means that you should strategically choose among its many airports for the one closest to your final destination. LAX is the largest with almost 60 million passengers going in and out every year. There is no train service directly from the airport but buses run to the Metro Green line at Aviation Station. Taxis going downtown cost under $50.00 and take half an hour in good traffic.
