  • Overnight Layover

    We are arriving at Ohara on Copa airlines from Panama at midnight. Our domestic flight is at 6am at terminal 1. After going thru customs at terminal 5 and then taking the tram, will we be able to rest our weary feet until security opens at 4am?


    There are a few places to sit in the lobby and baggage claim of T1, but not many.

    Are you looking for advice on anything in particular? Where are you flying from and to?


  • Violinist needs area to practice

    I arrive at ORLY at 8:15 pm for a 9 hr. 45 minute layover (leaving again at 6am)... I don't have a lot of money for a hotel, but I do need a room to practice. Is there anywhere I can practice in the airport with a mute? Or maybe a hotel is the best option if I can find one for around $60. I don't see the point in spending more if I need to leave it at 4am to catch my international flight. Need ideas. Thankyou so much!


    Your post has conflicting Airports - I presume you arrive at Paris ORY and will connect to Chicago ORD. I suggest you google either "Orly Airport hotels" or "Chicago ORD hotels".


  • Restaurant outside security
    Jun 10, 2012
    Hunband arrives ORD on United 3704 from El Paso 11:00 AM and is leaving at 6:07 PM on United 972 for Brussels. Chicago family would like to join him for lunch. Is there a nice restaurant OUTSIDE of security where they could alll meet? He knows he will need to go through security again. Is that okay?
