Is the new Midway Terminal as good as the AP says?

The new terminal at MDW is pretty sweet. The only problem is that they are still using the old terminal's gates right now. It is a pretty long walk from the new terminal to the old gates. Does anyone know when the new gates will be ready?

I'll give you an update next week. I'm flying ATA DEN-Midway-DCA and back.

Does anyone know what the largest aircraft serving Midway is/are?

When ATA announced their purchese of the 757-300's they said that it was the largest a/c that Midway could handle.

Thanks Kav92373.

I've never been, so I was just curious. I was also wondering if ATA ever flew their L1011s through there; guess I got my answer, thanks.

I know that they use L-1011-500's on twice weekly service to Hawaii from O'Hare.

Right now, the walk to the gates from the new terminal adds about 10 minutes compared to old. However, the gates will eventually be reconstructed and moved closer to Cicero Ave by completion of project - a couple of years off. Thus it is as "bad" now as it will ever be. All in all, its pretty nice - the old ATA check in was a disaster!!

I went through MDW twice this weekend. On Saturday I had the unfortunate experience of having to spend almost 4.5 hrs between flights.

The new terminal is very nice, spacious, and modern. Only the ticket check-in counters, rental car counters, and baggage claim are operating. There are no services, food or aircraft yet. It's quite a long walk from the gate to the baggage claim....I had to retrieve a bag checked on Southwest from STL and recheck it to MSP on Northwest. It was relatively painless.

Until the new terminal is fully operational, Chicago Midway is still the armpit of the U.S. I find it miserable to spend even 15 minutes there with the poor facilities and rude employees. Unfortunately, I was stuck there for a long time and Saturday with only a bartender in a bad mood serving me over-priced beer to keep me occupied. If you can avoid MDW (I couldn't this time), do so. Even if it means increasing your fare by $50 and going through ORD....it's worth it in my opinion! I can't wait until the old terminal becomes landfill.
