Summer Road Trip 2019: Glacier National Park



5 days & 4 nights, 3 States, 2 time zones, and about 1300 miles of driving – all decided at the night before departure ๐Ÿ™‚ For surely, unplanned road-trip amplifies the memories and fun.

AS436 Seattle to San Diego & San Diego International Airport


Thanks to Saturday morning schedule and no direct red-eye route from Seattle to DC, had to go thru airport-only-San Diego-for-an-hour as a transit in trip to DC. Transit-in-a-while obviously did cause missing of baggage upon arrival at BWI. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Benefit of mega V-drawing detour was watching the Crazy Rich Asians thru gogo as a crazy poor Asian… ๐Ÿ™‚ – Simple Cinderella story but surprised by limited hearing of Singlish-la…?

Great Customer Service & Fun Gurantee from Alaska Airlines

Screenshot_20180731-174015_TwitterAs Alaska being my favorite airline – well, I live in Seattle and had histories of “challenges” whenever I took Delta :), I have always wondered whether this gurantee works or not – but I had no chance to check as all my luggage came within 20 min.. ๐Ÿ™‚ However, at this time on the flight from Boston, I noticed my bag came late – maybe around 25 min since we “officially” landed.

As I was in a hurry to leave the airport -late night arrival with families – I didn’t have the luxury of waiting in line and report this to Alaska at airport which is the official T&Cs calls out.

Anyhow after arriving at home, I just “twitted” to check my luck and guess what happened: immediate response and at next day I got a reward of 2,500 milesย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Alaska rocks!! – Fun & sweet!
