Welcome to a new translated report serie from Guadeloupe (FWI) to Seattle,WA

the rounting:


this routing allows me to discover Alaska, and Omaha airport, and it's 6 exclusives flights for the data base


Our previous flight from Sint-Maarten/SXM is gated in A9, we have to cross TSA, customs etc and reach terminalB in one hour, which is short. We began a race against the clock,  and hopefully we didn't wait to much at the TSA, and terminal A and B are besides. At 8:50pm we reached B13, welcomed by the crew with some "you did it" : they were waiting for us, and closed boarding just behind.
The plane is pretty empty, and despite I didn't have window, I dind't change of seat, I knew that I'll sleep more than looking outside.

We pushed-back at 8:55pm bypassing an AA airplane.

The grandmas FA of this flight were pretty nice, they seemed to know the whole plane.

Take-off at 9:10pm, good by Philly, it was short and intense

Then catering service began, it was long because stewardess were talking to evereybody, which create a familiar atmosphere: I think that almost evereyone in this plane were accustomed to take this flight, there is not much tourists in Omaha.. except us ^^
I took the salty, but  it was disgusting, I wish I chose speculos

They're packed with AA's hubs

Then I ate. I brought bread and meat from Guadeloupe. As a french bread, it was of course excellent, and much better than what you can buy in some countries, and what I could buy in this flight via the BoB.  It surely a very frenchy practice but I pretty proud to have eaten by my own:)

There wasn't anything to see and I fell asleep and woke-up just before  descend over Omaha started. There were many turbulences, the aircraft is very small..

We can see Omaha far away

Right turn, we are flying over Council Bluffs, Omaha suburbs in Iowa, Omaha is located on Nebraska but between Nebraska and Iowa.

After a hard landing du to strong winds, we exit  the runway; it's 10:45pm (-1h)

Then we went to hotel shuttle bus, we only stay one night (at least, for only 35$ we had a beautiful room in Omaha… not the same in Philly on the return!). Evereybody here was very nice with us, a little surprised to find french here, before we explain that is only a stop-over.
It was very cold and windy, it reminds me a little Denver, but colder of course (20°F / -7°C , after 85°F in SXM)

Omaha is tthe ometown of Malcom  X and I admit that I never thought being here once!
