We flew from Cancun to Burlington vt via Chicago in late November.
Cancun airport is quite busy so we opted to visit the lounge. It was nicely done but a bit pricey for an airport lounge. It was $38 per person. We did it because of the crowd in the departure area. The lounge has some hot food and also cold, mix your own cocktails, beer, wine and soft drinks.
It was good that we waited there because our flight was three hours late. It did not effect us since we had a scheduled 5 hour layover in Chicago.
The flight was uneventful as was the connection. It was a bit bumpy but that is not the airline’s fault. We arrived home a bit early.
Chicago is an awful place to connect, especially internationally. We cleared customs and then had to take the airport train and then walk about a mile to our flight. And, we had to do security again.
