Re: Chicago Aviation Thread - 2020

Forgive me if this has been discussed, I took a hiatus from A-Net since COVID-19 started because it was too depressing. But, now that things are coming back, I am back. Yes, I am a fairweather fan. Does someone have a list of international passenger flights that are currently in operation from ORD?
