Hi, been a while since I’ve posted, too much work on the railroad side of my life to travel. I’m heading out to the Midwest tomorrow, KBWI-DTW-ORD on Delta (including a scheduled DC-9-50 DTW-ORD…even paid the “Economy Comfort” fee to be in my favorite seat, 5A…Delta now calls it 6A). I splurged since I’m guessing this will be my last ever trip on a DC-9 family aircraft.
After I visit friends in Chicago, I need to get to a town about an hour northeast of St. Louis. On previous trips, I’ve taken Amtrak, but their Chicago-St. Louis service is suspended for 8 days for major construction. I was at the end of my loop and about to consider The Dog, when I found Air Choice One.
I booked a ticket today from KORD to KDEC for $44 on a Cessna 208-B. Call me crazy, but I’m excited for this adventure…anyone know anything about Air Choice One or flying on a plane this small? Yes, I do know that this is a silly question on FA. Their website tells me that they use gate L10 in Terminal 3 at ORD, and “the last check in gate and the end of Terminal 3” so at least I have that figured out.
I assume it won’t be a struggle to negotiate the terminal at KDEC.
