A good sale to/from Las Vegas.
The $283 fare is the regular fare which allows for normal size carry-on and personal item in addition to advanced seat assignment.
United also have a $113 fare but that is a Basic Economy fare. United Basic Economy fares do not allow for any advanced seat assignment. Rather, your seat assignment will be randomly assigned during check-in. In addition, normal size carry-on that does not fit under the seat is charge a $30 fee each way + applicable gate check fees (but free if you have an United co-branded credit card or if you have United elite status).
This is one of the instances where you shouldn’t buy the regular economy fare. United allow you to pay for a seat assignment even on a Basic Economy fare. It is $15 for a window and $20 for an aisle. If you can’t travel light, its $30 to check a bag. So even if you check a bag both ways and pay for an aisle, you are only spending $213 versus $283 for an regular economy fare.
If you are staying on the strip, consider booking hotels directly with the casinos like Caesars.
