No problem!!!
I mean for American standards Sea-Tac is a very impressive airport, it is comparable to the modern airports in Europe...

Thanks for the view of the 3rd runway!

I'm so glad this will soon be reality. Will allow dual approaches and takeoffs during bad weather, and that will help everybody!

Alaska Airlines...They have resisted takeovers, and while they have had a few bumps in the road the last couple years, good to see a Seattle-hub airline. And they still have the friendliest employees in aviation IMHO.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle...tional_Airport

In 2007 Sea-Tac served nearly 31.3 million passengers, making it the 17th busiest airport in the United States. It ranks 25th in total aircraft operations and 19th in total cargo volume.

It is located about 1.5 miles from Interstate 5. It serves Seattle, Washington and Tacoma, Washington as well as western Washington state. The airport is a hub for Alaska Airlines, whose headquarters is located near the airport, and its regional subsidiary Horizon Air. The airport has service to many destinations throughout North America, Europe and East Asia. The airport also serves as a focus city for Northwest Airlines.

Recently a third runway has been completed at the airport allowing dual landings and decreased weather delays.

Very beautiful pictures and nice to see all the main Int'l airlines flying to Seattle as well

I think the Int'l ones go to either south or Noth Sattelite terminals.

^The only international arrivals that don't go to the south satellite terminal are United and Alaska, and also Canadian Arrivals.

That's a small-looking terminal for 31m annual passengers.
