    If you need to sleep the end of G concourse is quiet til about 6am. Also there is a yoga room, I didn't think of it in time, but hey, it's probably quiet and has mats and everything.

    O’Hare really needs a major renovation and have departures and arrivals on different floors like most other international airports.

    Check out the healthy food selection at Cibo Express & Argo Tea in the rotunda (between terminals 2 & 3). Many vegetarian/vegan options! Cibo is like a mini version of Whole Foods. Pricy though!

    There are about 20-25 outlets available for public use in the walkway between h7 and k7. Its in front of "nuts on clark" and you'll see chairs next to the window wall.

    If you arrive early to pick someone up, use the North lot past terminal 3, it's only $2 for the first hour and then you don't have to circle a million times!

    Go to Rick Bayles's Tortas Frontera for out of this world tasty food near gate k4. You must go there.

    Most outlets are on the walls if you can find one. K20 has one near the boarding gate doors and there's one on the floor near the JAL Flagship Lounge (K19/K20)

    Free Chrome laptop usage for Virgin America flights. Just confirm your flight info, enter a credit card (in case you don't return it!) and an ID! Nice time waster for those long flights!

    Chicago people are awesome. American Airlines folks not! A nice Chicago passenger just handed out baggage to all the rest of us getting off the regional jet, while the AA folks just looked on lazily.

    best food is at Tortas Frontera, though more typical food court fare is also available.

    There's no smoking anywhere in the airport. You'll have to go outside security, outside the entrance doors and a certain distance from any entrance. And remember you'll have to go thru security again.

    Pre-check during early morning is only at Security Checkpoint 8, at the far end of the terminal, by AA Priority. This is a loooooong walk to the G concourse.

    Stop at Argo Tea for the green tea with a ginger twist. It's really tasty in spite of the name.

    There are tons of outlets and some seating in the corridor between H & K. (by K6). This the same hall as the Admirals Club.

    Short quick moving security queue: far right of terminal, past international check-in. Quicker than one at other end near Spirit. Read more

    Make sure you take your belt off before going through the scanners, or you will get a patdown, too. They do not always tell you this.

    If your luggage is a little too large, try to engage the TSA agent in a friendly conversation.

    The Wine bar by where h and k separates is nice and has champagne by the flute.
    Allow plenty of time to commute as Chicago morning traffic can be slow & flights times are often slid earlier or later

    Two full svc restaurants (MacGrill&Wolfgang's) and lots of quick svc closer to, but after passing thru TSA. Long, long, long ass walkways w/o moving walkways - all in Term 3.

    Gate G17 is NOT where you think it is: it's a bus ride over to terminal 5! Make sure to leave time for the extra segment!

    Don't use the security line at the end of Terminal 3 (for L gates) - they take too long (35ish mins for a rather short line!) - go to the other security lines & walk to your L gate!

    Add 20 minutes to your arrival time, since it will take that long to taxi to your gate
