Maybe.... or I'd say probably. Chicago EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS for visitors... Then LA?

Even the Art Institute of Chicago, by TripAdvisor. Won Top Museum Honors last year. A new wing opened to display more of its Artwork at any one given time. That otherwise would be in storage till its turn again. It must have IMPRESSED Visitors.

So TripAdvisor advises from those who actually were Tourist, WHO TOOK TIME TO GIVE FEEDBACK. It is not meant to say a city has MORE ATTRACTIONS THEN ANOTHER. But much of what it has and SPACIFIC SIGHTS , that TOURIST RATE on their sight.

PROSPECTIVE TOURIST can Check TRIPADVISORS. FEEDBACK, from Top sights and Cities. TripAdvisor,... then by these feedback recommendations of Visitors. Then creates its RECOMENDATION LIST.

AGAIN CHICAGO IS MORE LIKELY TO IMPRESS FROM LOWER EXPECTATIONS BEING SURPASSED. LOGICAL REASONING FROM FEEDBACKS. That does work well for INCREASING TOURISM..... If they go home and COMPLEMNT THE CITY TO THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. Chicago does beat NYC in Domestic Visitors but International Tourist.... put NYC millions over Chicago.

SEEMS ... NYC CAN BE A BIT LETTING DOWN TO SOME? Especially if you have a view of Manhattan as a sort of Disneyland Urban Paradise. It did me. I noted in examples from Bags of Trash on streets off Times Square, to Gated stores even on 5th Ave when closed. And others ALL OVER. Should NOT be allowed in Manhattan. I hate the look . NYC prides itself for being a safer city then Chicago today? Subjective on neighborhoods.... But a wall of gated stores sure don't look it. . CHICAGO MUST HAVE OUTLAW GATED STOREFRONTS. YOU DON'T SEE THEM DOWNTOWN OR MOST OF THE CITY. But for the highest crime neighborhoods.

That is how i see it. It is not meant to be some Scientific poll ....THESE TRIPADVISOR LISTINGS. ITS ON FEEDBACKS volunteered by Tourist after visits, for others to see.... A good portion are world travelers too. They have their locations and even pictures posted.

I Know... A LONG POST TO MERELY GIVE A OPINION ON A SIGHT... LOL
That's right steeps, Tripadvisor also web traffic ranking of 57 according to alexa.com which is a pretty credible source when it comes to polling millions of international travelers. The size of a city doesn't always equate it being a better destination. My girlfriend for example actually prefers Chicago over NYC and she is from the UK. She says Chicago's waterfront is so much better but that's just one person's opinion. You do have some foreigners who pick Chicago over NYC as the destination. There are also many direct flights which fly over the Northeast directly from Europe to O'Hare. Hey, it happens. I've use to fly over the west coast directly from O'Hare to Tokyo as a destination. I've never been to Branson but if it ranked high then the majority has spoken.

You lost me with that whole ethnic population thing.
It's really not hard to figure out. When you have people who are living in Chicago from other countries in Asian, ,European, Africa or South America it's quite obvious that O'Hare will be the destination point to and from those places.

I don't get what this has to do with the pejorative phrase 'fly over country'. All these places have people flying in and out of them.

Exactly. Most everyone counts people at a people airport over cargo. There's a reason why, when you Google "world's busiest airport," you get this:

Let me google that for you

A handful of American airports have seen reduction in movements due to the reduction of smaller regional jets. Delta, the predominant airline in ATL, has shifted from smaller CRJ2, CRJ7, and CRJ9 aircraft, to higher capacity, but lower frequency B717s.

Yep. Bigger planes mean fewer planes.

I've never heard anyone refer to Chicago as "flyover country." If I heard that I'd think the person had no idea what they were talking about.

I don't know anyone that's ever referred to Chicago as "flyover country" either. The OP listed some media outlets that they claim have referred to the Midwest as "flyover country" but not Chicago. And anyone who does use that term anymore, especially a journo, is probably using it ironically.

In a sense, this whole thread is a straw man. But, it has been a fun opportunity to watch people debate which airport is the world's busiest.

Let me google that for you

Relax, Chicagoans, your's is a greater city than Atlanta in almost every other regard. But you're not taking the airport from us!

Well as someone who sees Chicago as my favorite city.... thanks. I use to live by O'Hare. Be happy Atlanta is a Sunbelt City and just on that alone.... stands to grow. I as a Pennsylvanian though.... do not want a plane transfer way out of the way to Atlanta. When going West or even to Charlotte.... also increasing in flights. Luckily i can take straight through flights now.

But i merely see O'Hare did not lay down in defeat. The Old Man in a sea of a few New Airports.
I am surprised Dallas/Ft Worth being New also. Didn't gain more? O'Hare though more expensive for Airlines to use. Just has a good Location as a transportation hub it grew as, and the cities increasing Tourism doesn't hurt.

BUT AS I SAID BEFORE... THE WHOLE NOTION OF CHICAGO AS A FLY-OVER CITY IS A ......NEW YORK CITY RESIDENTS IDEA.... WHERE TO THEM, IT IS FLY-OVER IN FAVOR OF LA AND SF.

ANSWER TO THREAD.
