Assuming everything runs on-time, Independence will use our (Frontier's) gate A3
up here in Seattle. However, their scheduled arrival is exactly our scheduled departure time for F9
flight 848 to Denver, so things could get a little hairy if DH
is early and F9
is late. Tonight, however, things went fairly smoothly. DH67 was almost an hour late arriving in Seattle but DH68 left 2 minutes early (ok, so its a scheduled 2 hour turn).
We had a few give aways at the gate, but other than that I can't think of anything special for the first DH
flight to/from SEA
. It was dark when the plane arrived so a water salute would have been meaningless. The DH
A319 that came in, N807BR, was still all nice and shiny, kinda like our newest planes, although N938FR looks a bit trashed inside already. I got to check in the first DH
pax from Seattle, so that was kinda cool, but other than that it was fairly normal.
