    Disagree about "Expert" lane. Line is deceptively long when MDW is busy. I've been burned a few times. Make sure you check how long that line really is - it wraps around.

    B terminal has the worlds smallest bathrooms for such a large airport. Even the men have to line up outside.

    Give yourself plenty of time. Once a great mid-size airport but now a monster.

    Was at midway for first time since COVID shut down everything. Gold Coast Dogs all other restaurants in that general food court closed. Airport empty. Sad knowing so many out of work.

    Try a Chicago Dog at the food court. Not too bad, especially with a beer :)

    Is your gate A4A? Then you'll be walking approximately 8.7 miles just to get to/from the main concourse.

    If you're traveling to downtown, best way there is on the train.

    There's no wifi of any kind in concourse A, because this is apparently an airport of the past.

    Don't expect the Fly By Lane to get you through security faster. When you round that corner, you'll realize the line is 2x as long as the others and they only have 1 or *at most* 2 screening lanes. :(

    the phone room between security and C concourse is the best place to get some work down while between flights... power and usually quiet.

    Baggage claim here among slowest in midwest. Plenty of time to relieve yourself and reapply deodorant! That's a hint, people!

    Avoid the bathroom lines by using the facilities inside the food court. They are in the back overlooking the tarmac. Between Reilly's Daughter and King Wah

    Don't stand up in the aisles and chat. Put your sh*t in the overhead bin and sit the F down. Some of us have places to go. Daaannnggg.

    The people watching isn't as much as at O'hare. But midway is easier for a tired traveler to navigate.
