Travel

Planning your trip

If possible, we suggest avoiding flying through Chicago which appears to be the most vulnerable to a variety of delays. Flights from Atlanta, Lexington/Kentucky, St Louis or Minneapolis tend to be less frequently delayed than those routed through Chicago. (source: Bureau of transportation statistics).
