flying to Vegas on a fairly regular basis ( I really enjoy the shows and variety of cuisine) I see people all the time leave bags in the A-B-C lines and walk away somewhere, despite the announcements that NO ONE is to leave baggage unattended...I'd like to see the gate attendants call the TSA people and have them take the bags...allowing them to remain just descriminates against those of us who obey the safety regulations...having to go to the TSA people to reclaim their bags will train them NOT TO DO THAT!

I first flew Southwest from Fort Lauderdale to Las Vegas in Movember of last year and couldn't have been happier, Erin one of the attendants was so bright and cheerful, I swear if the wings fell off she would have been smiling and joking with us, probably telling us Southwest doesn't need wings or something like that.
I found if you follow all the "rules " you breeze thru security, I just put all my loose items in my carry on bag so I leave little to take out of my pockets and collect on the other side. If its a long flight I pick up a sandwich for the plane at one of the counters in the secure area.
If i'm not checking baggage ( I usually do) I just buy some travel size toiletries when i get to LAs Vegas and just leave them behind less than $5, All I carry are my razor, toothbrush and hair brush
My second experience on SWA was just as nice, I flew again to Las Vegas in mid January and it was a smooth trip. This timeI used the SWA vacation package and it was very smooth ( I did have my doubts at first) I compared what I could get booking seperately on my own and the package was within a few dollars of what I could do on my own. I just wish I could book flights further out than is now allowed, I have reservations for Las Vegas again in November and have everything booked except my flights...but Southwest is still THE way to go...
