It has been a while since I posted my first flight-report, and so I thought I would share some photos from a recent flight I took with Delta. I was on my way to Portland from Minneapolis, and had connected through Seattle earlier in the morning that day. That morning my flight was operated by a 737-800, which surprised me that Delta was deploying such a large aircraft for such a short flight. For several weeks the seat map on the SEA-PDX was wide open, and a few days before my flight I received an email from Delta informing me that I had been upgraded for the flight, which was a nice surprise.
Our flight departed from the S Terminal, and before the flight I spotted two Hawaiian Airlines A330's, a Delta A330-200, and a 767-300 parked at various gates across the concourse. On push back, I spotted an ANA 787 in the Star Wars livery, but was unable to get a good photo of it from my window.
Boarding began leisurely at around 10:45am, and I was on board within a few minutes.

The Captain soon welcomed us all on board and said we'd be underway in a few minutes, the flight to Portland would be just about 54 minutes from gate to gate that morning and we'd be climbing to just 17,000 feet.
During the pre-departure beverage service I stuck with water, but when the Flight Attendants took drink orders for after takeoff, I chose a bloody mary.

We were soon cleared for takeoff and were airborne very quickly.

After takeoff, the Flight Attendants were in the cabin serving beverages and pretzels. Only a few minutes after receiving my drink, the Captain announced we were beginning our descent into Portland. It was one of the fastest in-flight service I've ever seen!

The Flight Attendants then came around and collected glasses and trash, and prepared the cabin for landing.
We soon made a smooth landing at PDX!

This was a great flight with Delta. The service on this flight was excellent, and it was great to get on a 737 on such a short flight!
