    Interesting consumer / passenger behavior insights.

    Southwest does a pretty good job out of Midway and the terminal itself there is a lot nicer than it used to be. I'm assuming those things make it tougher for Gary to be competitive as a departure city.

    I thought Gary Leff had been grounded by the title of the thread!

    I don't want to sound mean. But I would not want to go near Gary even in broad daylight even if the flights were $100 cheaper.

    Chuckle. That was what attracted me to the thread in the first place. I'd rather have a conversation with Gary Leff than go to Gary, IN. Not even close.

    The airport is within easy reach from Chicago Skyway, so at least one does not have to drive through the neighborhood at night like they do with MDW.

    If anything, maybe this will convince local politicians that Chicago metro does not need another airport, and they will stop wasting money on various studies...or worse, the actual airport in Peotone.

    while Chicago may not need a 3rd airport. I believe Chicago might need a larger main airport in the future.
