FAQs about flights from to

How long is the flight from Sydney Airport to Chicago, IL Airport (ORD-O'Hare Intl.)?

One of the sweetest things about a long flight is that it forces you to take a step back from the craziness of the nine-to-five. Make use of the 17 hours and 49 minutes from Sydney to Chicago to wet your whistle with a cheeky vino or two, finally finish off that book or squeeze in a few Zs.

What airlines fly direct from Sydney Airport to Chicago, IL Airport (ORD-O'Hare Intl.)?

There aren’t any direct flights between Sydney, NSW Airport (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.) and Chicago, IL Airport (ORD-O'Hare Intl.). But don't cry into the tissues just yet. A few airlines will get you there with just one stopover, including Qantas, American Airlines and United Airlines.

How many flights are there from Sydney Airport to Chicago, IL Airport (ORD-O'Hare Intl.)?

You won't have to pull your hair out trying to work your well-earned holiday time around your flight from Sydney to Chicago. There are 4 flights per day to choose from. How's that for choice?

Sydney Airport to Chicago, IL Airport (ORD-O'Hare Intl.) Flying Tips How to survive a long flight:
  • A great way of tackling exhaustion after many long hours in the air is to stay well hydrated. Drink lots of water early on and throughout your journey. Avoid dehydrating and caffeinated beverages, such as coffee and alcohol.
  • Choose your preferred seat. If you reckon you'll be out of your seat a fair bit, you'll want an aisle seat. To save your ears (and your sanity) from screaming little ones, take a seat near the back of the cabin — special facilities for young kids are often at the front of the cabin on long-haul flights.
  • If you're on a strict "no airline food" diet, then pack your own. Sandwiches, pastries, vegetables and fruit are all OK. However, it's a good idea to consider your destination country’s rules about what can and can’t be taken off the plane.
  • Eyes gone square from staring at your screen? Take along a variety of things to keep you entertained. Whatever floats your boat — an audio book, a deck of cards or your camera to snap those window views.
  • If you'd rather not begin your getaway feeling knackered, treat yourself to the best neck pillow you can afford. Strutting out of the airport feeling refreshed is the best way to go.
What to wear on a long flight:
  • You'll need to go through airport security, so avoid wearing metal, including jewellery. Your shoes should be easy to take on and off in case they need to be scanned. In the cabin, comfortable layered clothes are the best option so you are always prepared for any fluctuations in temperature.
  • Not moving from your seat can leave you with cramped, stiff legs. However in a worst-case scenario, it can lead to potentially life-threatening blood clots. Wandering around the cabin and performing exercises in your seat as well as wearing a good quality pair of compression socks can help prevent deep vein thrombosis, or DVT.
Q: Can you take food on international flights?
  • You're allowed to take food in your carry-on baggage. However, think about the comfort of your in-flight neighbours. Dry, prepackaged snacks are probably best due to restrictions on liquids. And be aware — some foodstuffs may not be allowed in your destination country, so check in advance.

                                      A disappointing experience due mainly to the very small bedroom and miniscule bathroom.
