  • How early do I need to arrive
    Sep 18, 2016
    I have a 7:45 pm departure on Sunday Oct 30th for a domestic flight iwth no bags to check. How early do I need to arrive at the airport?


    I would get there at about 6 PM.


  • question about spending time in the airport
    Oct 26, 2015
    I fly in early morning and am meeting some friends 4 hours later to take a cab into the city together. How can I make sure my luggage stays in baggage claim until I pick it up? If I pick it up after my flight, then I'll have to spend these hours in baggage claim waiting for them.


    There's nothing you can do. If you wait a few hours it will either be still on the belt (although your flight will no longer be on the monitor, so you'll have to check all 8 belts) or in the airline baggage office. Why don't you just take the CTA Orange Line into town when you arrive? It's faster than a taxi anyway.
