    For an airport that's known for delays, they sure as hell close shops early

    Do NOT check a bag when flying in here. Bags take years to get to the belt.

    The best part about flying through Midway is that you're not flying through O'Hare.

    Arrive earlier than you would normally think for Midway. The security lines are longer these days.

    This airport does not have Pre Check. Security is not equipped for large crowds so be prepared to wait, even in Sky Priority

    If flying Southwest on any B gate before the end of the concourse, get there early because there is horribly inadequate seating.

    Avoid the fly by lane if it's on the right. It's by far the longest and they let everyone in

    e-check in! General security doesn't support reader & you get to check in separate from masses w/ employees. Also no microwave scanner here.

    If you're here early and in terminal A, McDonalds is the only place open for breakfast. They start serving at 5 a.m.

    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.

    Security does NOT open until 4:30-5am. However if your not here by 6-7am you may not find parking.

    Expert traveller security line doesn't work well if you pool that line with strollers & wheel chairs...need to rethink that one.

    Use the expert traveler lane if you're tired of waiting while a man walks in and out of the metal detector 4 times because he forgot to take change out of his pockets.

    Don't run on the moving walkway or you could fall flat on your face when it ends and look like a jackass in front of a hundred people.

    The food choices have gone from pretty bad to so horrible. Definitely eat before you get here.
