Los Angeles (QLA) to Chicago (CHI)

Whaa?! A trip to Chicago! You will definitely need a ticket to Chicago then. Well, unless you'd rather hoof it. And although we agree walking is great exercise, you probably want to get there before the year ends. Fortunately, you found us. Hotwire can get you an awesome rate on your flight from QLA to CHI.

How can you get a great rate on tickets from Los Angeles to Chicago?

We've been doing this for years, so we know a few ways to snag the best price on your flight to Chicago. You can pocket that extra cash for more than just getting from point A to point B with a few simple tips and tricks.

What is the cheapest day to fly?

It pays to be a weekday warrior. Tuesday and Wednesday typically have the best rates. Next, Thursday and, surprisingly, Saturday. Most like to come back on Sunday so you can save by leaving a day earlier.

Why are flights cheaper if you stay over the weekend?

Staying the weekend at your destination, like Chicago, usually means a less-expensive ticket since most people fly during this time. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.

What are shoulder seasons?

Off-peak and shoulder seasons are when most vacationers aren't flying to certain locations. So when it is cold, most people head off to warmer places like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., just like the birds (they had it figured out). But in the summer months, you'll find that Europe is where it's at. You can usually save on your flight when you fly when everyone else isn't.

Jump on that great rate

Airlines change their rates frequently. If you discover the price you like, then book it! Unsurprisingly, you're not the only one looking for a stellar rate on a ticket from Los Angeles to Chicago. You may lose your opportunity to dial in the time and the flight you wanted.

How else can I save on my flight from Los Angeles to Chicago?

We think the Hotwire Hot Rate is one of the best deals out there, although we may be slightly biased. You'll get a great deal on your flight from Los Angeles (QLA) to Chicago (CHI). You won't find out the time and airline until after you book, but with a little risk you can get huge savings.
