I really love our airport in Portland Oregon, even during construction! There is a lot of walking to be done though, so you definitely need to plan on walking a bit to get to some of the gates.
They have a wonderful Pet Relief in the Delta wing for your furry loved ones. The Buffalo Airport also has a cool pet relief area, which is right out in the open, instead of having a seperate room.
I had flight credits from a few canceled flights so I flew first class. I really enjoyed it!! Extra room. Extra attention. Boarding first, getting cozy, and enjoying a quick cocktail before lift-off! Loved it.
Rental car reservations are a crap-shoot, at least in Buffalo, at around 5:30pm. I reserved a luxury SUV and they wanted to put me in a smaller SUV with very little cargo space. They didn’t have anything else yet and made me feel like that was my only choice, or I would have to wait to see if something else came in. I dragged my luggage to the car lot, saw the vehicle, and went right back up and told them it would not work for my needs. I was expecting to be waiting quite a while, but they suddenly had a new Ford Explorer turned in. Lucky me! It was a little bit dirty inside, and I documented it all, but never needed any of the proof. The Ford Explorer was a wonderful rental car and had all the bells and whistles. I loved it! It was a really easy to drive for the 2,900 miles we would be driving.
