Seeing how busy Phoenix was yesterday evening, I decided to use an American A320 on a short route, since I knew I was going to spot around the terminal for a bit before pushback. It appeared that I stumbled on an American Virtual mini event judging from the surrounding callsigns, but it made for some packed terminal photos, and seeing such heavy traffic was great!
After deciding that a flight from Phoenix to San Francisco would be a little too long, I opted for the slightly shorter but still enjoyable Phoenix to Los Angeles. The Arizona desert scenery was fantastic as always, but with the limited amount of photos I went for some scenery shots during descent into LA. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

i wasn’t kidding about a packed terminal. It looked great!
