Need last minute airfare to Las Vegas (from NYC). Help?!

I think I waited too long. Tickets are now ~$600!

Need to get there Friday, August 3 morning or early afternoon and return Sunday late or Monday morning August 5/6.

Any advice?! Should I wait or is ~$600 the best I'm going to do this late in the game?

All based on supply and demand. If the flight is fairly full it’s unlikely you will find a cheap fair. Have you looked for connecting flights also?

I use google flights and at times Matrix to see what the prices are and then use Kayak as well. They have "hacker fares" where they do two one one tickets on different airlines to bring the price down. Southwest is another option to look at but they are nowhere the LCC they were touted to be

Kayak also has an indicator which shows ---buy, wait and while they are not 100% accurate it is a much better indication of whether to wait and I would use that over asking a bunch of strangers on a forum with due respect to my colleagues here

Do a search on Orbitz to get an idea of what is available on various airlines. Appears that you can do better than $600, but may require some flexibility as to departure airport, etc.
