    Fly Southwest! They actually have a sense of humor.

    Moving sidewalk etiquette: walk on left, stand on right.

    If you know how to travel, use the expert lane. It's crazy fast.

    only go through expert traveler line if you are indeed an expert.

    If you're traveling light take the expert traveler line (far right) at security. Lightning fast!

    watch out for the high pressure faucets… it looks like I just pissed my pants.

  • S. Courtney W.

    don't forget to print your boarding pass at home, so you can go straight to security

    Potbelly's Big sandwich for $6.13 with tax is the best food value at Midway

    Southwest does it right! There is scarcity of outlets in this airport and they put in a bunch of seats with outlets at their gates!

    Potbelly Sandwiches! Get your final fix before you leave Chicago.

    Caution: the moving walkway... is ending.

    Midway/southwest has the slowest baggage claim on earth. If you are flying into Chicago and can avoid checking luggage, you will save yourself a lot of time waiting!

    Aniela T. · February 6, 2010
  • Elizabeth

    The seats with the outlets are for ple using computers. Not for sleepers and your giant bag

    Elizabeth · September 12, 2010
  • Tom B.

    Take the CTA Orange line to and from this place. Its easy and inexpensive!

    Tom B. · July 27, 2011
  • Tyler H.

    Don't fly AirTran. They suck.

    Tyler H. · July 2, 2009
  • Michael K.

    Go ahead - nap on your flight to this airport. The aircraft carrier-style landings at Midway's short runways will wake you up!

    Michael K. · February 18, 2011
  • Kathleen S.

    For the love of goodness. Please don't stand on the moving walkways. It does nothing to dispel the fat American stereotype.

    Flight delayed? Miller's Pub in Concourse B is definitely the spot to kill some time & have a cold beer.

    Worst coffee shops of any airport. Poo in a cup.

    try to fly in here when you want to avoid the size, crowds and extreme cab lines at ORD

    jessica p. · March 1, 2010
  • BYOBandits

    Mean mug everyone on your plane and keep the middle seat open.

    BYOBandits · September 2, 2011

    If you're flying Southwest, there are armchairs with AC and USB power at the end of the B gate jetway

    Potbelly is the best food option at Midway, but this location does not have oatmeal :(

    Matt S. · October 10, 2009
  • Lauren Z.

    Bathrooms with doors that open out is heavenly! Sooo much easier to get your luggage in with you.

    The moving walkway is not a ride. Please keep walking or politely step to the side. :)

    It's 701 miles to Baltimore. I've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and I'm wearing sunglasses. Hit it.

    Best Options: Harry Caray's Seventh Inning Stretch, Lalo's, Gold Coast Dogs, & Reilly's Daughter are all in Midway Triangle Food Court; Manny's in Concourse A; Potbelly Sandwich Shop in Concourse B. Read more

    No free wi-fi is rediculous!

    Meggy · June 22, 2010
  • Chris J.

    Never go to the far right when going through security. It may seem like a good idea but it takes much longer than going straight.

    Chris J. · October 7, 2010
  • Monika M.

    Flying Southwest? Forget to print your ticket? They have super secret computers next to the security checkpoint. No more standing in line for your ticket!

    Monika M. · September 8, 2013

    Do NOT eat at the Chinese food place in the food court. You will regret it.

    Skip the LGA madness,take Delta Shuttle from Marine terminal to Midway. It's flying like it used to be.

    No free wi-fi at Midway, they offer Boingo, a paid service.

    Gold Coast Dogs are great. They girls behind the counter are mean as hell too. Bonus.

    Kristoffer L. · August 15, 2010
  • Tim C.

    Skip the ego trip. Take the shorter line instead of the expert traveler line. It's quicker!

    Tim C. · January 15, 2011
  • Dilara Sultan

    If you don't have friends/associates picking you up, GET A LIMO! The expanse is not terribly greater than a taxi, but you can strech those legs after your plane ride.

    Dilara Sultan · September 26, 2010
  • Jim H.

    I'll join in the chorus and recommend potbelly for lunch. Even if the line is long, they're fast!

    Jim H. · January 22, 2010
  • Todd C.

    Of you wish to sample the worst food in Chicago, try Manny's on concourse A. Yuk.

    Todd C. · December 22, 2009

    If you're at A4a or b, pack a snack and leave early. It's a hike
