Good to be back Flight report!


Hello Flight Report! Back at this site after 7 years since my last flight report!

I am doing my best to summarize all the trips i took before this 7 years period and will be posting series of flight report here!

This is a trip I took in Nov 2017 from Seattle to Vegas. 

I am also heading to Europe in December, so there will be some upcoming flights as well.

But let's get started.

I stayed in the DoubleTree by Hilton- Seattle Airport the night before. After driving from Vancouver BC to Seattle to catch this flight

This will be the shuttle taking us from the Hotel directly to the Airport Terminal at SeaTac tmr noon.

Flying the notorious Spirit Airlines. No traditional boarding pass. This is a letter size paper printed from the Hotel i stayed in last night.

For some weird reasons, TSA Pre Check is added to my boarding pass despite not having status with Spirit (well what status can you get)

As this flight is from a long time ago, I don't actually have the exact time of departure/arrival. But you are able to see that Spirit start boarding extremely early almost 1 hr before the scheduled departure time.



SeaTac airport is really depressing. The ceiling is low and the jet bridge blocks a lot of the light coming in from the windows. 

Let's do some plane-spotting in Sea-Tac. The window edge is really annoying to get any good photo. But being the base for Alaska Airlines, a lot of different Alaska body here including livery that are from Universities in the area (OSU and Washington U in this case)

But after I think a 15 minutes walk. Here we are arriving at Gate D4 with a 30 minutes delay already.


Getting ready to board. Funny thing is, the Gate agent that i thought is Gate agent was actually a flight attendant. Talking about the maximizing what you can do in LCC

We are on a Sharklet A320 which was quite a new plane back in 2017! I personally like the Howdy painted on the winglet

Started our taxi toward the runways and come across a at the time quite new Prime Air.

Obviously Prime Air is now a lot bigger with 73 aircraft in their fleets. Maybe we'll get 4 hours delivery one day.

Getting ready for Take-Off.

Typical Pacific Northwest clouds.

As we slowly fly toward Vegas, the sun start setting

After 2 pictures (2 hrs), we are on final approach to Las Vegas. No food photos because no food/drinks were offered. You'll need to pay to get anything

Conclusion

Spirit is a cheap alternative for people who wants a "No-Frill" flying (Canadians who will understand please send me a comment"
Sea-Tac is easy to get with a light rail link directly from downtown.
And again, good to be back. Stay tuned for more flight report coming.
