Vegas Part 5: Same Old, Same Old on the Strip

By: Greg Lindsay on May 26, 2006

LAS VEGAS (AdAge.com) -- By my fifth day in Las Vegas, I was not, despite Hunter S. Thompson's example, a sleep-deprived, drug-addled freak. If anything, I was actually a little bored. What I really saw during my time here was an infectious degree of sameness. The last decade's luxe lust may have built the city into an adult playpen, but for anyone from New York or Los Angeles or San Francisco, the net effect has been to bring Las Vegas more up to par with those cities while sweeping away all of its sandy grit. For example, not only could I find the same luxury brands in the Forum Shops that I could in New York, I could also find them again half a mile up the Strip in the Fashion Show Mall.

Why'd You Pick That Airline to Fly on Thanksgiving? We Thought So

By: Greg Lindsay on November 29, 2010

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Last week marked the start of the annual holiday travel rush, with an estimated 24 million Americans taking to the skies over Thanksgiving, a 3.5% increase over last year. It's been a banner year for airline profits. While carriers have called a truce on ruinous fare wars, Southwest Airlines made "Bags Fly Free" the focal point of $159.5 million in TV spending last year, according to Kantar Media -- a figure nearly equal to the combined ad budgets of Delta, United, American and Continental. Have the airlines really become so commoditized that paying $25 for a checked bag means all the difference? It seems so.

Vegas Part 3: The Ad Agency Behind the Catchphrase

By: Greg Lindsay on May 24, 2006

LAS VEGAS (AdAge.com) -- Billy Vassiliadis is the CEO of R&R Partners, Nevada's largest advertising agency, and has been the id of the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority for more than 25 years. It was a pair of R&R copywriters who coined "What happens here, stays here," the ubiquitous catchphrase that first granted visitors permission to (and now dares them to) keep spending money until they are transformed, temporarily, into a wilder, crazier and, to hear Vassiliadis tell it, anesthetized version of themselves.

AIRWORLD PART 12: BRAND BENEFITS OF A NON-PLACE

By: Greg Lindsay on September 27, 2005

PARIS (AdAge.com) -- As far as passengers are concerned, airports have neither a real past nor a future, just a continual present that reliably offers a consistent set of choices -- flight schedules, duty free, fast food -- day after day after day. Airworld is, in a sense, a single, giant franchised operation.

AIRWORLD PART 9: REMAKING NYC'S JFK AIRPORT

By: Greg Lindsay on September 22, 2005

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- John F. Kennedy International, a New York aviation institution with an unfortunate history of crime, grime and unmet expectations, is finally experiencing some much needed gentrification.

AIRWORLD PART 6: DIET OF A TERMINAL MAN

By: Greg Lindsay on September 19, 2005

DETROIT (AdAge.com) -- I woke up Sunday with a sore throat. It was inevitable. After all, what are airliners if not giant flying thermos bottles that enable every passenger to efficiently share his microbial spew with every other passenger?
