I thought I was pretty good at GeoGuessr but no clue on the above photo, anyone know where I was waiting for pushback in this one?

If not Phoenix, Salt Lake City perhaps?

I'm going to say Tucson. We've got snow on the ground in SLC and that ridgeline doesn't look like west of the new terminal.

ABQ? The turquoise-looking jetbrige fits, as does the WN tail in the background if this E175 was at A1 or A3.

Although I wasn't on a United flight when taking this photo early one AM, UA does fly to this destination with seasonal 2x daily service. Where was I?

About to take off from somewhere.

Hmmm... no guesses. Here's a clue: The daily flights to this airport are scheduled to arrive 15 minutes apart; the daily departures are scheduled to leave 20 minutes apart.

Fairbanks? Hills in the distance look right.

Nope -- here are two more clues: it is an INTL airport that does not have any cross runways, and the primary carrier in the country, a private company that out-competed and ultimately purchased the government-backed flag carrier a few years ago, is a Star Alliance member.
