re: Educate yourself on WOW airlines if planning a trip to Europe soon - SM6
Yes they do, as does Icelandair. It's the issue with their hub at KEF. They don't have he terminal capacity to host two hub airlines who like to arrive, connect and depart passengers at the same time. They are working on it but it will take time....

re: Going to Lisbon in a few weeks - SM6
It's a lovely city to just walk around in. The Prado is worth a visit, but mostly I enjoyed hopping around little taverns and bars. Grab a little bit, have a drink and chat up the people. Some of the friendliest and engaging I've met in continental Europe....

re: Educate yourself on WOW airlines if planning a trip to Europe soon - SM6
I'm pretty familiar with Wow and their competitor Icelandair. Wow is a lot like spirit in that they found on fees for most of their revenue. If you buy luggage when you book you can save a lot of money. The A321s from the east coast to Iceland are great, configured like other domestic mainline je...

[quote]Totally forgot about Corridor, which comes from the DryHop team, both of which are conveniently located from Wrigley Field. I'd be inclined to recommend DryHop over Corridor if choosing between the two.[/quote] You can't go wrong at either, but I'm partial to Corridor because I live within...

[quote]It took that long earlier in the late-spring / early-summer.

re: Brief Chicago Question(s) - SM6
An alternative to Halsted and Boystown is Southport, 4 blocks west of the stadium on Addison. Corridor Brewing is a great brewpub to check out on Southport. Butchers Tap is also a good bet. There is no real Magazine Street equivalent, but you could head down to Wells St in Old Town, lots of ba...

re: Worst Airport experiences - SM6
ORD ops can be VERY fragile. 22L is the most productive runway on the airfield and can work in east and west flows. The new terminal/airfield work they recently announced will make the airfield work much better, but it is just a very congested airspace. You have Midway just south, Milwaukee and C...

re: Worst Airport experiences - SM6
[quote]CuseTiger[/quote] When the weather here in Chicago is bad, all hell breaks loose. The winds are the worst because they will prevent the use of the 5 parallel runways, forcing everything to the north/south diagonals. But what is just as bad (and what you experienced) is when weather in t...

re: Can I expect to get a refund from Delta after yesterday's mess? - SM6
You can try, customer service agents have a surprising level of autonomy. If you are polite and present a reasonable argument they will take care of you. If you are medallion, you will get increasingly better compensation. A silver might get mileage credits, a platinum may get lounge vouchers....
