From Favorite Airport to Second Favorite Airport


Hello!
On February 17, 2020, I took a flight from San Jose, CA to Seattle, WA. This was my flight home after coming down two days prior to visit friends. I flew from Norman Y Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC/KSJC) to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA/KSEA) onboard Southwest Airlines flight 2161 (WN2161/SWA2161). The flight was operated by N7887A, a 12 year old Boeing 737-752. During this flight, which was full, I caught quite a few pretty sights along the flight path.

Note:
Keep in mind that this flight was in February, meaning that this was before the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Conclusion

Overall, this flight was fantastic. I was able to fly once more before having to quarantine due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. I was also really glad to be able to see my friends once more. This flight was memorable as I was able to fly into Seattle, which is much better than my home airport in Portland. The crew was nice onboard, and the flight was mostly smooth. Southwest has outdone themselves again, and they really showed a lot of LUV during this flight. I can't wait to be able to fly again after this pandemic is over.
