United Airlines 351
San Francisco (SFO) – Seattle (SEA)
Boeing 757-200
19 February 2014

With three minutes to spare, I made it onto the final flight bound for Seattle. It was another Boeing 757, so boarding was done through door 2L, upon which I turned left into the First Class cabin and took my seat, 3A. The tight connection made it that I didn’t have time to use the bathroom, so I decided to use the lavatory on the plane. I headed towards the front of the plane and the cockpit door was wide open, both the pilot and co-pilot were already in there preparing the aircraft. The pilot was a young woman, when I glanced into the cockpit, she had both of her legs spread wide open and her feet were up on the controls/dashboard of the cockpit and she was texting. Wow.

I returned to my seat and found my pre-departure sprite waiting for me. The cabin was rather empty and there weren’t many people on the plane.

I had some tea and a snack which was offered by the purser. I slept for most of the flight and woke up about 15 minutes out of Seattle. With that, my second mileage run came to an end. Here’s to another one! (Btw.. I don’t have one planned.. better get on that soon!)
