    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!

    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!

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

    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.

    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.
