Fast-forward to a year and-a-half ago, and the idea was cleared for departure.
While Johnson admits it's not the first of its kind, he wasn't happy with the professionalism, "romance ambience," or even the size of other aircraft.

A 40-minute flight costs $799. A one-hour flight is $999, while 90 minutes goes for $1,299.

Not that you're paying attention to what's outside, but flights take couples over Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and, of course, the Strip.
"We have a flight that no couple will ever forget," Johnson said.
Other add-ons are available, like limo service to/from the airport, chocolates and champagne. While you can't get married aboard the plane because of marital laws in Las Vegas, Love Cloud said they're more than happy to help you tie the knot while grounded.
So, what about that one part no one wants to talk about?
"After every flight, Love Cloud has a cleaning service that cleans every part of the aircraft with specific cleaning products to kill any and all germs." That includes sheets, pillow covers and towels being removed and changed.
Johnson says the response has been overwhelming and many have already booked their once-in-a-lifetime plane ride.
"It is a fantasy or bucket list item for many people and Vegas is the best city to start this business in."
