I have been stuck in Chicago since last night. I missed a flight to London because of a delay from Indianapolis. Indianapolis airport has free wi-fi thanks to Marriott which sponsors it. You watch a short video about them, and then can access the Internet. Chicago O’Hare on the other hand asks you to pay for Internet access, as does the nearby Hilton.
If you are stranded in Chicago airport due to some fault of an airline, and they give you a voucher that won’t allow you to eat at the nearby hotel they put you up at, here’s some advice, assuming you don’t mind being on the receiving end of a waiter’s look of disdain: Go to the Hilton’s restaurant and ask for the kids’ menu. You’ll be able to have a decent bowl of spaghetti and meatball with enough left over on the voucher that you can get some ice cream and not have to pay too much out of your own pocket.
Anyway, I will be at the airport until 3am, assuming I manage to get on my flight and it leaves according to schedule. There is a reasonable chance that I may not manage to blog again until I get to Israel.
