    Default Chicago Airports

    Which airport should I be arriving and departing at?

    MDW (Midway)?

    ORD (O'Hare)?

    Which one is closer to Jay Ryan?

    I am flying in O'Hare tomorrow. Flying out tomorrow as well but from Midway. Jay Ryan? He's not showing up on my Hotel map so I can't help you there.

    O'Hare - 14.86 Miles from the Bird Machine
    Midway - 8.76

    But in Chicago sometimes the shorter distance can take you much longer depending on where you are going, the time of day, and what day it is. I have no idea from Midway since I've never made the trip to or from the city....

    midway = cheaper, slightly more difficult to get to (for me).

    ohare = nicer world-class airport, more expensive to fly into and out of. easier (for me) to get there.

    north side, representing.
    most of the time we never fish!

    Hmm. Well .. I'll do my best to go with ohare .. but if the flight is a LOT cheaper, I might have to go with Midway. I haven't seen too many ohare flights.

    i have a personal vendetta against O'Hare. summer before last, i connected at O'Hare on my way to NYC. long story short, i was stuck in the plane, on the tarmac for 9 hours.

    three hours in, we were actually on the runway, speeding up to take off, only to suddenly slow down and turn off the runway. the pilot would come on every 45 min or so and say "we'll be taking off in about 15 min". to quell the looming riot in the plane, the flight attendants gave away all the liquor in the plane for free.

    by the time i set foot in nyc, i could have actually driven there, from KY, faster.

    You WILL be delayed coming into O'Hare.
    Midway, not so much but then you might skid off the runway and end up in traffic.

    Flip a coin.
