I wrote about this unexpected trip here.  I used some mileage to fly last minute to watch a game of the World Baseball Classic in San Diego.  Though usually I fly out of ORD, this time I had just flown man a day before from Seattle, and didn’t feel like making the 2 hour drive to ORD, so I booked my ticket from my regional airport SBN.  In the past I’ve tried to stay away from regional flights, but this experience might change my mind.

Here’s what the thumbs say:

          SBN>ORD

1) Boarding:

  • Thumbs Up – Boarding lasted about 5 minutes total with the plane 3/4 full.  Emptiness is a perk that comes with a regional airport.

2) Seating:

  • Thumbs Up – Seat next to me was empty.  Decent leg space.

3) Entertainment:

  • Thumbs Up – Quick 15-minute flight.  No entertainment, but by the time you realize it, you’ve already landed.

4) Dining:

  • Thumbs Up – Quick 15-minute flight.  No drinks or food, but by the time you realize it, you’ve already landed.

5) Crew:

  • Thumbs Up – No negatives with the crew.
