There are plenty of options besides Meigs to fly into Chicago. One thing about Meigs is that we have to remember it was a tiny airport with only private airplanes flying into it. Depending where someone wants to visit in Chicago they can fly into Palwaukee, Schaumburg, ORD
, Gary, Dupage, or Aurora. There are small airports all over the plane so losing Meigs just isnt a big deal. I for one look forward to the new park they are building and I think it will work well with the lakeshore reclamation project they have done along with the Soldier field rebuilding.
