You should be sorry if you're truly unable to understand the difference between a direct flight and a transfer.

No, it has zero to do with what you're talking about. You don't even understand what you're talking about, because you keep droning on about plane connnections, which has nothing to do with the conversation.


No, it's hilarious that you don't even understand the meaning of the term, which has zero to do with where people transfer planes.

You could start by taking a look at a U.S. map. LA and NYC aren't domestic transfer hubs, because they're on the fringes of the continental U.S. The great domestic transfer hubs are all in the nation's interior- Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, Salt Lake, etc. These cities are all flyover country, a term that has nothing to do with where people are transferring. In fact if your city is a domestic transfer hub, you can basically be assured that is in flyover country.
Man, you sound like a real Emmy Award winner.

Do you not read what you ****ing write?

Once again, what im saying to you is fairly simple to grasp.

For the last time, its a pejorative term for the middle of the country. Its coastal elitism.

Its funny that Chicago is deemed "flyover country" yet its one of of the busiest places people are flying to and not over.

Why don't you go troll some more Chicago subforum while you're at it?

NOLA101, just give it up, honestly.

Asking why Chicago is referred to as flyover country when its pretty well-known that everyone almost flies to there and not over it is a ****ing rhetorical question.

I've worked on an airline before, I've probably seen more airports and places than you have. It has nothing to do with your incorrect assertion that I don't understand what you're talking about, for the 63rd time.

Flyover country is still a pejorative term, and im from the ****ing East Coast.

Your entire direct flights/transfers/hubs shtick is neither here nor there. All it means is that the areas between NYC and LA (more generally East and West coast) are insignificant and unimportant areas. Coastal elitism. I think everyone ****ing understands what the term is about here bud.

Its not brain surgery, although for you it might be.

This would be a more accurate depiction.

NOLA101, the fact that people GO TO O'Hare constantly is proof that its not flyover country.

Its more or less the other states that really, nobody has a reason to go to highlighted in the red.

List of global cities; Chicago listed as an alpha.

Los Angeles is listed in the same tier.

Seattle is in my top 2 favorite US cities but that is just personal preference.

All around and less subjectively though... It would not get into the top 10.

NYC LA SF DC CHI BOS HOU DFW ATL MIA would be on most people's top 10 lists that are not based on personal preference.

Y'all are really forcing this "Chicago = flyover country" thing, and it's gotten pretty annoying. Flyover country would be described as Midwest/Interior West, NOT Chicago.

But not the south? What about Alabama? Texas?

How about Maine in the Northeast?

And where does the Chicago exemption begin? Does Kenosha County, WI get one? Or is the entire state "flyover country?" And is it only Cook County IL that gets your exemption, or does it expand out into the suburbs?

I'm afraid there are considerable holes in your "theory" here, which becomes more and more apparent each time you post. Your definition is quite poor (see quote above): You include only the Interior West and Midwest (what about the South? What about Maine and Vermont?), but only part of the Midwest (NOT Chicago, undetermined as to how much Chicago is within, and how much without, "flyover country"). If Houston passes Chicago in population, does it then escape the "flyover country" tag? Does Chicago automatically become part of it again, like the rest of the counties in Illinois? How big a city do you have to be for an exemption? Denver? Dallas?

Please clarify.
