United Airlines corridor, Chicago O'Hare Airport

I am transiting through Chicago O'Hare Airport on United Airlines, on my way from Toronto to Los Angeles.

 

This corridor, connecting Concourses B and C that make up the main hub for the pre-merger United Airlines, was opened in 1987 along with the two concourses. It is best known for the ever-changing lighting effects as seen here; in fact, Sean "Puffy" Combs actually shot a music video in here sometime in the 1990s.

 

After the Continental merger, Chicago O'Hare remains the home hub for post-merger United Airlines, even though Continental's Houston Intercontinental hub is actually larger.

 

I arrived at O'Hare as a domestic passenger, as Toronto Pearson Airport, like most major Canadian airports, has US immigration and customs on site to pre-screen US-bound passengers.
