Alaska – A Long Travel Day

We are officially enroute.  Up at 5AM this morning for our short walk across to the terminal.  We borrowed a hotel baggage cart to haul the bags over …

Only the green bags have clothes – the others have camera stuff.  Once Lou returned the cart, we went through security.  I stopped in for some coffee – and found we could also buy some live lobsters to take on the trip …

Passed on the lobsters this time.  Bangor is a very informal airport.  They don’t bother to post the gate for the flights – I guess you are supposed to know which one you want.  But, it’s small, so it wasn’t difficult to figure out.  We had a 2 hour flight to Detroit on a small plane, and arrived safely ahead of schedule (always happens when you don’t have a quick connection to make):

The Detroit Airport was both larger and nicer than we expected – very modern, including a psychedelic tunnel between concourses where the walls change color to music:

We have been in the Delta Sky Lounge for about 5 hours – another hour to go before we get ready to board the flight to Seattle.

Then we change planes and on to Juneau.  We are scheduled to arrive in Juneau around 9:30 pm (1:30 am our time).  The plan is to just relax tomorrow, then we board the ship late Saturday afternoon.

Will check in from Alaska!

  1. Actually the Detroit airport looks just like it did in 2011 — when I did my “passing
    thru”. Yes, the underground “trip” is very different — both sight-wise and sound-wise. So glad your flights were relatively smooth — tho long—rather the layovers
    were long!

    Enjoy the sights and cool weather.
