|SEA approach at its best!|
Anyhow, I had an uneventful flight up to SEA, the highlight of which was a beautiful light show on the descent over Puget Sound. When SEA is on its game, there’s few approaches in the world like it. Maybe YVR, but I won’t say that too loudly around here.
I then spent the next couple hours having some quality time in the SEA Centurion Lounge. Shout out to my buddy there (you know who you are, but unless a certain other buddy passes this on….you’ll never know). As I’ve repeatedly, repeatedly said the Centurion lounges are head and shoulders above the average domestic lounge, and are the main reason we cough up the Platinum card renewal fee. Had some specially made skinny margaritas, and dinner before the club closed at 10pm.
Since this was 2 hours before my next flight, I did what any red-blooded mileage runner would do in the situation- found the next best club. In this case, the Alaska Airlines Board Room that I can access on Priority Pass, or my Admiral's Club access since I'm flight American for my next flight. All's well and good when there's options until boarding. I can't go back to the terminal....I just can't!! ;)
So, can I just take a moment here to encapsulate what exactly trips like this can add to your life? Tonight I walked off the elevator of the Board Room, zombie style, right smack into a priest in full floor length robes… holding what appeared to be a dirty martini. As in- the priest had the martini, not me.
And that, Charlie Brown, is what the spirit of Mileage Running is all about.
Next up- DFW (I’ve missed you).
