That is to say, don't book a flight to Seattle or Vancouver and then a
separate flight to Portland. Just book the flight straight to Portland
and let the airline figure out the optimal transfer point. From
Mexico/South America/Australia, it's likely to be via Los Angeles. From
Europe it's likely to be via New York/Chicago/Minneapolis. From
China/Japan it may be Seattle or Vancouver, but it's more likely to be
via Tokyo with a direct flight Tokyo->Portland.
