O’Hare International Airport isn’t a bad airport. It had all the essentials of what people come to label as an airport. Let’s see. It has a departure/arrival section, bars, a food court, Starbucks, cranky people, police officers, traffic control tower, TSA and airplanes. Yup, pretty standard if you ask me.

On my arrival, the airport was pretty empty and I got through the airport quick. It was pretty damn cold during the first week of March. I experienced the lake wind chill while waiting for our cab. I’ve been in many below zero conditions at high altitudes but when that wind chill hit me it sends a shiver up my spine like when a woman finds out she has a stalker.
On the departure, I didn’t experience any traffic or any congestion since it was late Sunday afternoon. There are ticket booths for to you grab your boarding pass if you checked in online. I totally suggest checking in online and only bringing a carry on cause it saves you so much time. The TSA were pretty efficient in getting people through the metal detectors in a timely manner. There was no captivities searches on anyone. Also, I wouldn’t suggest using the words “bomb” or anything to that nature even if you’re saying “dude that’s the bomb!”
Overall, ORD isn’t a bad airport compared to LAX. I didn’t experience any major congestion issues and the lines moved fairly fast. It’s clean and everyone was fairly pleasant. I didn’t get the pretentious LA attitude I’m accustomed to but more of the subtle facial expressions of “that’s disgusting” when I let one rip in the TSA security line.
