best time to come and cheapest flights?

i'm visiting my best friend and I was hoping that May would be nice weather and I could find a cheap flight.

i don't think my boyfriend would like that

May is a good time to come. I wouldn't chance it by showing up any sooner, I've seen snow in April here.

Can't help you with cheap flights, I haven't flown in over 10 years.

south west is usually the cheapest. you should be good mid-late may but the winds will be bad so don't take a puddle jumper on usair unless you want to throwup.

i would agree that may is probably the earliest youd want to come if you arent prepared for or want to deal with any and all forms of weather occuring all within the same day.

as for flights, i live here, i dont need to fly where im already at. we have o'hare and midway airports, both of which are served by every airline i can think of, and most of those commercials dealing with cheap flights usually involve chicago at some time/some point

I'm pretty sure I'm going to Chicago in late May or early June.

As long as they start turning on Buckingham Fountain by then, I'll be happy. I need my Married With Children moment.
