  • international baggage claim
    Mar 19, 2017
    my daughter and I are arriving to Midway on two different flights, one domestic and one international. Where should we plan to meet inside the terminal? Neither of us has ever been to Midway airport.


    You could meet on the lower level near the door to the taxi area. The arrivals level is not large.

    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.
