i think it’s like -30°F so happy they’re taking a little extra time for de-icing.
couldn’t be happier to be on the ground since about half of that 3 hour flight was just sub threshold white knuckle turbulence which I define as enough to spill your coffee while it’s sitting in the tray.
if there was any of the old pdx carpet around I couldn’t find it. if i wasn’t running so far behind i would have spent a little more time looking ( later i would find out there is still a stretch near D7 in the business center and in the corridor where smaller alaska planes come in at concourse A. ).
or at least that’s the way it feels sitting in the low numbered gates of terminal b ( the american air terminal ) at dallas/fort worth international airport. any food or coffee is like a 10 minute walk along boarded up gates that i’m going to guess signals renovation but gives the vibe that it’s boarded up section of town. the monitors throwing exception codes only adds to the effect.
ahhh, wikipedia says the the gates are under construction.
