It's been a long journey but so far, I've only moved 4 hours into the future since I departed Singapore at 6am. I'm super glad that the final flight isn't too long.
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) - Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field (BOI)
ATD: 10:43AM (7 minutes early)
ATA: 01:22PM (17 minutes early)
Final boarding pass for this journey. Glad to see this made it all the way from Singapore intact as well.
After collecting my bags from the previous leg, I had to re-check it for the domestic leg of my journey. It was an interesting experience, I haven't had to do something like this before.
From the baggage re-check area, I left the international terminal of SFO and made my way to the domestic terminal. Had to go through security yet again.
I really like the concourse area of SFO. Can't imagine it during peak periods though.
Let's have a look at the domestic FIDS! I'm going to assume that this is a meagre amount but when compared to international flights, it's night and day.
Had a look around the terminal.
A lone 777 sitting with an entire fleet of cargo containers.
Made my way to the gate as I was tired and just wanted to rest.
My plane for this flight! It's almost like a toy when compared to the previous sectors.
Nothing much happens until boarding starts and I made my way to the plane.
Open air jet bridge! Another new experience for me.
It's definitely a small plane. The overhead compartments wouldn't take in any my backpack and I had to stow it under the seat in front of me. And for the first time this trip, a moderately crowded plane!
Seat view. It's a squeeze but hey, the plane is small too.
Lights, air nozzles and a call button. Nothing fancy here.
I've never been so low to the ground on a plane.
The final passengers board the plane. I would say it was at 70% capacity? I was lucky again here as the seat besides me wasn't taken.
Safety information card and a sick bag. No reading materials here.
Spotted a big gash on the flooring where I was seated.
Without much delay, we're off!
A drink service is offered but no snacks are available.
Levelling off over the mountain ranges.
Took a quick visit to the lavatory. No bigger than a broom closet.
I provided my own entertainment by watching some shows on my phone.
Landed in Boise!
After a quick taxi, we disembarked from the plane.
A look around Boise Air Field as I collected my bags and rental keys.
A no-frills flight from United Express. Really nothing notable or exceptional. A single drink service was expected but no prepacked snacks seems like a bit of a cost cutting move which UA is taking advantage of by citing the pandemic.
