Yesterday we flew BHM-DEN-SEA. We left Birmingham around 3:00 p.m. and flew out of Denver around 6:00 p.m. local time, just in time to view the final few moments of a sunset from 36000 feet. We happened to be sitting on the left side of the plane, giving us a good view as we flew in a northwest direction.
This morning we were up bright and early (early at least) and flew SEA-SFO-JFK. The Seattle to San Francisco leg included a scenic sunrise. Again, we happened to be sitting on the left side and flying south, giving us a good view.
Our SFO-JFK leg was on United's Premium Service. We were fortunate that our upgrades cleared and we sat in Business Class, enjoying great service and a tasty meal. Tonight we're snug in a Hilton Garden Inn not far from JFK and we may wander into New York City tomorrow before taking off for ORD (Chicago) Monday morning to start our FlyerTalk MegaDo.
