Thanks to a very kindhearted pilot named Steve who made a little boy's day by posing for a photo after our flight.
We love priceline.com! The SEA-TAC Hilton for $60. We got in pretty late with just enough time for a drink, a few phone calls, and nighty-night. This is the next morning, getting ready for our second flight--Seattle to Anchorage.
At our gate, waiting to board. We had a smooth flight to Anchorage but left Seattle late and had a very close connection in Anchorage. When we landed, the flight attendant announced that there were four passengers to "Dutch Harbor" and one to Adak Island who needed to be allowed to get off the plane first. We hurried to the front, where we were told to "RUN" to our gate because the plane was being held for us. We could not RUN very well, a 6 year old and an old lady with both her arms full of stuff. We did the best we could, arriving at Pen Air out of breath, only to be told that the plane had not even boarded yet. Of course it hadn't!
