At this point, I had checked off Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) and Salt Lake City (SLC). Seattle/Tacoma (SEA) was next. I was done with 1/3 of the Delta hubs. As noted in my last recap, we arrived in SLC late. This left me about 35 minutes before this flight boarded. I tried to go into the Sky Club®, but the line was obscenely long. Instead, I found a comfortable chair by the giant Christmas tree, got some work done, and enjoyed the magnificent views.

I really can’t get enough of these views.

They were just as impressive from above.

Flight Route SLC to SEA

The flight from Salt Lake City to Seattle took one hour and 42 minutes.

DL0796 Board

The flight boarded on time at 2:06 PM through Gate A16. We boarded and taxied out quickly and were soon in the air enjoying the panoramas pictured above. Like all of the segments of this trip, I had bought a seat in First Class. One upgrade was processed at the gate and I doubt I would have been up front if I had not bought the seat.

Snack Basket DL SLC to SEA

Shortly after takeoff, a snack basket was brought around and drink orders were taken. I chose my two favorite items: Miss Vickie’s Sea Salt Potato Chips and Michel & Augustin Milk Chocolate and Melty Caramel Cookie Squares.

Service was good on this flight. The flight attendant working the front cabin was friendly and present throughout the flight with drink refills and a great attitude.

DL0796 Flight Status

The flight arrived one minute late. I had about 50 minutes before boarding began on my flight from Seattle/Tacoma (SEA) to Los Angeles (LAX).

Delta Sky Club SEA

This was just enough time to have some delicious clam chowder in the Delta Sky Club®. Stay tuned for the next flight where I head to LAX.

Anthony’s Take: The third flight of the day was pleasant. I enjoyed the views and friendly service. Three down, six flights to go!
