DEN-BZN-DEN on LynxAviation (L3)

Background Information….

I wanted to fly on LynxAviation before the airline goes out of business in September 2010, as the majority of us know already. I wanted to add L3 to my list of airlines flown on and also a new city, too. The only question was….where to go.    I chose BZN. Why? No clue, to be honest. However, I have never been to Montana so I thought I would go up there and see what it’s like. It is no different from Colorado. BZN sits on the west side of the Rocky Mountains and is also on the same time zone as DEN.

This is the 2nd time I have flown on the Q400 with the first time on QX (see trip report below.)

I listed myself for this trip the night before and also booked my hotel for an overnight as well.

   I should say, since this trip is non-rev travel, the rules and dress code do apply….

On with the report…….

LynxAviation 1205
DEN-BZN
April 21, 2010
N504LX – Q400 (Mickey the Moose).
Seat 9A
Gate A62

Since I worked the night before, I wanted to ensure that I had enough time to sleep before heading out. That is why I took the 1:10pm flight to BZN. I checked in online frontierairlines.com and printed my boarding pass for the outbound. No need to report on how that went, although the computer did behave well without an attutude! LOL!

The next morning, I started packing my things and getting ready to go. I arrived at the airport a good 2 hours early. I wanted to stop by the pass bureau before flying out, did what I needed to do and went to my gate. The gate agent was a real beautiful looking girl by the name of Amber. She was very nice and very helpful and accommodated me because of my hearing impairment. She originally gave me an aisle seat, but I asked of there were any windows left over. She changed my seat assignment to a window. I thanked her for the seat change.

When boarding started, Amber made sure that I was around for the boarding process. She called me over and asked for my boarding pass and I was on my way out on the ramp….

When I got on the airplane, I thought my seat was 9F. I totally goofed up and sat in that seat when my seat was really 9A. I got stuck with a foggy window throughout the flight, so that is why the lack of pictures. The flight itself was somewhat bumpy, but not too bad. The flight attendants were ok, but tired looking. I slept through most of the flight due to the foggy window.

One of the things that amazed me about this airport was it’s appearance. I was blown away! It was very cabin-like, a home feeling. It was very, very nice!

LynxAviation 1202
BZN-DEN
April 22, 2010
N506LX – Q400 (Bandit the Raccoon).
Seat 19F.
Gate 5.

With the lack of sleep the night before, this flight departed at 10:45am. I went to sleep a little later than I wanted to; I got glued to the HBO mini-series special “The Pacific” on TV. A great series to watch…. I recommend anyone who loves WW2 history….

I checked in for my flight and printed out my boarding pass at the hotel’s mini-business center and had the free breakfast. The free breakfast was nothing special but it was a good eat.

I had the hotel shuttle van take me to the airport at 8:30am to ensure time to get through security. To my amazement, the security was a breeze and no extra time was needed. So I had two hours to kill in a small waiting lobby. That was totally my mistake, leaving early. Live and learn for next time.

When I arrived at the BZN airport, there was no one at the “Frontier” check-in counter. Thankfully, I checked in online. While waiting for two hours to kill, a nice LynxAviation employee (A supervisor, I believe. No uniform was worn by her) gave me my seat assignment. I got another aisle seat and kindly asked if there were windows left over, and I got 19F, the last row.

I boarded aircraft 506 at Gate A5 and sat in row 18 because row 19 had the bulkhead behind the seat and I did not know if the seat reclined or not. Unfortunately, someone was assigned to 18F which was fine. I took my seat in 19F. The seat did recline but it stayed reclined on take-off and landing. The seat recline button was stuck! I thought that was weird.

The unfortunate thing is about the return to DEN that it was very turbulent. This aircraft does well in weather like that, I was impressed though.

This trip was a good one, but a boring one at the same time. I was not too impressed with Belgrade and should have rented a car, but I didn’t. I was basically bored to death, except for watching “The Pacific” on TV in my room. I ate at Kara’s Family Restaurant. I highly recommend eating there. The food is very, very good! It is located right next to my hotel on Jackrabbit Lane. The weather was good, sunny while it was pounding rain and thunderstorms in DEN. I arrived back into DEN just in the nick of time for another storm to start pounding DEN again.

Thanks for reading. Feedback and comments are welcome, as usual!

Nice TR! We have family in Helena and Missoula, but have flown into BZN once. I agree with you, it is a "homey" feeling airport. Unfortunately it gets extremely crowded when there is a full NW/DL A319 boarding to MSP, and a UA A320 to DEN. At least that's how it was when I was there. Probably seasonal equipment changes.

Most likely because DEN was in north flow, meaning landing 35 L/R, and departing 8, 25, and 34 L/R, which is their standard configuration.

Great T.R.! I flew in to BZN as a kid on the original Frontier right after that terminal opened. I vividly remember those geese as you go up the stairs and I always thought it was such a cool airport. Later in life I was fortunate enough to get to work at FCA, which is another cool Montana airport.

If you want to solve the bandwidth problem, you can move your photos to http://www.imageshack.us/ - this website is free of charge, and there is no limit on bandwidth or the limit is very generous.

Just my 2 cents.

Yes, Belgrade is not the finest example of what the Bozeman area has to offer. It's sort of the town "on the other side of the tracks." Go back, rent a car, and check out Bozeman or even head down to Yellowstone. Given that you were stuck in Belgrade, though, the Pacific on HBO was probably your best option!

Thanks again, I enjoyed your report!

Nice little trip. This is just for flying, and you go to destinations you'd never go otherwise. A little stroll around the hotel, a nice restaurant, a good TV show.. It's not that bad after all. And it's relaxing.

Maybe one day you will be doing a similar trip again, to a destination you'd never go normally and you would discover a nice city or town that no tourists usually go too, I did this and went to a small town in Eastern Turkey near the iranian Border called Kayseri. Expected nothing and it was a nice surprise!

I really loved the terminal, gives you a warm welcome to Montana. I went on to Livingston for 8 days and one in Bozeman. It's a very nice city. There, we met a Norwegian scientist who was researching something to do with fishing...

I went on UA's ex-TED A320s, something I had done before on LAX-LAS-SFO.
I really liked the trip, we went to Mammoth Springs and all over Yellowstone National Park. BUT... we didn't se Old Faithful, which I regret.

Mostly jets fly to BZN, in fact. Lynx and Horizon fly the Q400s, but otherwise it's a mix of CRJ-200/700/900 by Skywest, which flies under both the United and Delta banners. Compass is now flying the E170, replacing the old NW mainline service, which for years was 727/DC-9 service, and more recently, saw the A319/320. Busier travel times (summer) see UA mainline (A319/A320 and, last year before they were retired, 733s). DL has operated 738s to SLC and ATL during the summer, and previously flew the 757 on the ATL route as well. Looks like this summer DL is putting an MD-90 and A319 on the MSP route. Finally, Allegiant offers MadDog service to LAS.

United Express (Skywest) does CR7 service to ORD in the down months. UA mainline throws in A319/320s in the summer to both ORD and DEN. Skywest also does seasonal CR7 service nonstop to both LAX and SFO.

Another fun fact: BZN saw its first-ever 747 in the summer of 2009, when Air Force One touched down with President Obama and family, who were on the way to Big Sky.

United Express (Skywest) does CR7 service to ORD in the down months.

You mean the winter months, right?

Quoting BZNPilot (Reply 23):
Another fun fact: BZN saw its first-ever 747 in the summer of 2009, when Air Force One touched down with President Obama and family, who were on the way to Big Sky.

Interesting!!!!  



A Safe Flight Begins With Quality Maintenance On The Ground.
25 rw717 : Northwest Orient used to fly DC-10s in to BZN on their Milkruns that went something like ORD-MSP-BIS-BZN-GEG-SEA, or something like that. When I flew
26 AirframeAS : What kind of loads were those back then? Does anyone know? A NW DC-10 to BZN? Wow!
