WiFi did not work. I specifically asked, and paid $51.00 for a seat that supposedly had WiFi. Not good. Please refund the $51.00. Thank you.

You can get there with the help of many public transportation options, including FlyAway bus service that features round-trip routes to a few places around the city. If you plan on driving your own vehicle, parking at LAX ranges from twelve dollars a day to thirty dollars a day, depending on the lot. If you want to eat something before boarding your flight, the airport offers fast-food joints such as Panda Express and fancier establishments such as the Encounter Restaurant.

Arriving in Chicago, Illinois

Landing at Chicago O’Hare International Airport, you’ll find yourself about eighteen miles from downtown. No matter what time your flight lands, the twenty-four hour CTA Blue Line train system will be available to take you to your destination. If you plan on taking a cab to your hotel, expect to shell out thirty-five to forty-five dollars for the ride. Other options include utilizing the bus/shuttle center if you have reserved a room at a hotel that offers free shuttling service to its guests.
