what non stop planes do you recommend going to chicago? thanks
You have four options: American, Spirit, or United to Chicago O'Hare, or Southwest to Chicago Midway.
We've taken the Spirit non-stop that leaves at 8:00 and returns at 18;00. We'll spend almost 3 entire days there and only 2 nights this week (leaving Wednesday morning, returning Friday). Have done this flight 4 or 5 times and it has always been on time and comfortable and reasonable rates. Be sure you read the "bare fare" information so there are no surprises. Everything is extra which is nice for us as we don't need a darn thing over and above a seat!
We always use the UA flights, BUT we have high status on UA, so use them, even when schedules/routes might not be as convenient, as some other airlines.
So far, always great flights.
We use American whenever possible, Southwest as a second choice, and Spirit only as a last resort. United is usually the priciest of the three.
Unless Spirit is $80 or more less than American, it won't save you money by the time they charge you for your "options."
American, United, and Spirit fly to O'Hare airport; Southwest flies to Midway. Both are about the same distance from the Chicago City Center.Edited: 09 October 2017, 04:02
Southwest all the time. I fly to Chicago to visit family a lot. Usually I can book $44, $59, or $80 one-way tickets. No baggage fees PLUS Midway puts you a LOT closer to the loop (makes going to the North or Southside a lot easier via the El).Edited: 10 October 2017, 02:01
Spirit for prices.
If you are an over-packer like i am, you will want to keep in mind of those airline options, I believe Southwest is the only one who allows 2 full size checked bags plus a carry-on plus a purse or backpack. Extra bag fees would kill me! Good Luck!
thank you for the replies!
i just have one big luggage and a back pack.
i chose southwest on dec 14 bec of the time 6;55pm one way. hows the price $159?
One way? $159 is what we usually pay.
