I would have enjoyed the cross country view had I'd been able to look out the window (which I selected) instead if the non-window seat!! I would have enjoyed a window on this cross country flight. (which u selected) only to find that not every seat HAD A WINDOW!!!
Happy with fly service!
Wasn't happy- given the "choice" to pay $45 to carry on my carry on, $25 to check my carry on. Old plane, so nothing I've come to expect on a flight The air was fairly cold/cool. Not even a free snack. Was this worth the somewhat lower fare after the additional charge for baggage? Not sure, but will take this all into consideration for my next choice of airline.
We were a little snug in our seats, but otherwise a good flight
I would definitely take Alaska again - great airline!

You can take advantage of the wealth of public transportation to get to Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport (MSP). The Metro Transit has light rail service as well as bus service that travel within the Twin Cities.
The flight from MSP to Portland International Airport (PDX) Airport is a little over three hours. Once you arrive, catch a taxi or a shuttle to head to Portland, which is somewhere between 20 and 40 minutes away, depending on traffic.
Be sure to take a tour of the Pittock Mansion during your stay. Opened to the public in 1965, the mansion is considered an important local landmark. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry also offers interesting exhibits and events that center on science and technology.
To enjoy a relaxing day outdoors, stroll through the Portland Japanese Garden and take pictures of the pond as well as the stone and sand garden.
If you plan to visit Portland in the summer, you can expect warm, dry conditions, perfect for spending time outside. August is the warmest month with an average high of 81 degrees. The winters tend to be mild and damp, while still making it possible to enjoy the great outdoors.
