Next leg of the trip is PDX - SLC.

After 24:00 in Portland, a city without big touristic interests (a small bonus at the end of the report though!), it's time to go to LAS, via SLC.

We had 24:00 of non stop rain, and it was quite depressing. So we were in a very good mood as we left the city aboard a shared van to the airport, the cost is only USD 10- pp. There is a light rail as well from downtown to the airport, but would have allowed a walk and a change from the hotel, whereas the shared van stop was in front of the hotel.

Very efficient check in, nobody in front of us, TSA was empty, we'll be airside within 2 minutes!

Nobody's around ;)

Our gate, but it is only in 90 minutes, so my friend goes to Starbucks, while I do a quick tour of the terminal:

solide waste … I found that quite funny:

And if you do a solide waste you have a little tray where you can put your laptop and watch a moovie :)

As usual, efficient boarding, I'll board as first in coach, and here is the Eco Comfort / Eco cabin:

On Time push back, as there is absolutely no IFE in the DL single aisle Airbus fleet for the time being, no Deltalina video here. A bit of spotting with a 763:

Snack is served, double pretzels and cranberry juice for me:

The hostess who was working in First begins to offer coffee or tee together with biscoff cookies. That was great that she did it, as the flight was short, this will avoid us finishing the flight with the paper cups on our laps!

Soon enough we reach the SLC region, for an ontime arrival:



As promised, a bonus from Portland, not so much too see, it was cold and rainy. We took a one day pass and stayed on the tram for most of the day, as it allowed us to make the whole city tour with two different tram lines:
