This was my third trip to Las Vegas and I've visited the Grand Canyon each time. The crew at Scenic Airlines do a great job, with a special nod to the pilots who were very "user friendly".

Hi, are you able to give me an idea of the additional costs involved for my husband? He weighs approx 320lbs, your site says between $50-$200 extra. Is it on a $ by lb basis? Thanks Mandy x

Thank you for your inquiry! The fee right now is $100-$200, depending on the round trip tour. This is a flat fee, it is not charged each way unless you are taking one-way passage.
sorry just another question- are the times given for booking on the site pick up times from las vegas hotels or flight times. So for example would a booking time of 9.00 am mean we would be picked up earlier than that and if so how long so we can figure out roughly what time in Vegas would we be collected - it will help me pick the best time for us

The times provided online are the departure times of the aircraft. Hotel pickup takes place about an hour and a half before departure time.
Hi I have seen mentioned that you need to be in reasonable fitness to do the walk down to the boat , None of our potential party have disabilities or significant issues but neither would I describe us as athletes ! we can all do stairs, regular walks etc are we likely to be ok ?
