Amsterdam to Portland in the Delta A330 - My First Long-ish Haul in a Long Time

Yesterday I marked the beginning of my finals week by taking the A330 from Amsterdam to Portland. It was my first long haul in a long time, clocking in at almost 9 and a half hours. The last long haul i did was before many of these wide bodies had been reworked.
