The fact that LAS is in the middle of the city is precisely why nobody will want to use a new facility with a 30 minute drive to the strip. Let me just nitpick a bit. The city of Las Vegas starts north of Sahara Ave. and only the Stratosphere casino is located within its city limit. All the Strip c...Jump to post

NW ended their service from ORD to NRT about the time AA started. I miss their 747s at ORD, but I'm pretty sure they never flew a 744 on the route, but instead a 742 till the end at ORD.

If the location on the old O'Hare Modernisation Plan documents are still valid, it will be East of 4R, Between 9R and 9C, and West of where 36 used to be.
