In other news, National announced it has modified its planned service to Washington, D.C. and will begin two daily nonstop roundtrips between Washington Dulles International Airport and Las Vegas on August 1.

With this change the company will reinitiate its service to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on October 3, rather than a previously announced date of August 1. Customers who have purchased tickets on the carrier’s Reagan National Service between August 1 and October 2 will be offered the chance to fly to and from Dulles at no extra charge, or will receive a refund upon request.
