Midway vs O'Hare

01/22/09: There's a pretty awesome dataset for this year's American Statistical Association Data Expo. I doubt I'll actually submit a poster, but I figured I could at least play around and see how Midway and O'Hare compare as far as delays and destinations. My personal experience is that Midway is way better - fewer crowds, shorter delays, easier to get to.

Notes

The mksqlite package has been really helpful. Basically it lets you run SQL commands through matlab. Unfortunately (for me at least), most of the docs are in German. Here's a translated help file if you're looking.

mksqlite('open','db-name');
result = mksqlite('select * from db-name where field=str')
mksqlite('close')
