PDX Connecting Times, KS to AS

I'm contemplating a BOS-ACV trip. The return is ACV-PDX-BOS showing a 45 minute connection in PDX, where ACV-PDX is operated by KS. If it were QX/AS to AS, then I would probably risk it, but I have no idea what KS is like at PDX.

Anyone think this is enough time?

My other options are ACV-PDX-SEA-BOS, or drive 3 hours and fly MFR-SEA-BOS... or

EDIT: A complicating factor, is that this trip isn't until July, so there's always the risk of schedule changes - it could get better or it could violate MCT and we'd be SOL.

A PDX connection should be fine provided everything is on time. Penair is at the B gates in PDX which is probably a 5 minute walk to the most distant AS gate - actually a bit closer than to connect between mainline AS and QX.

You'll most certainly arrive at your AS flight during boarding but it's doable in 45 minutes.

Not sure of on-time performance for Penair, though - that's where I'd personally have more concern.

Yes, it's easier to connect KS to AS than QX to AS....less walking time.
