Flight to Chicago time duration

Explorer C

Hey all, I was looking to book a flight on the website from LaGuardia ny to Chicago (O’Hare-Terminal 5) and I’m kinda confused by the flight duration it says, it’s for Friday June 7th departs at 6:00am and arrives at 1:00pm, why is it so long? When I look from for a flight from CT to the same location it’s only 4 hours

There are  no  non stop flights between LGA and ORD, so you are looking at a flight that stops someplace and then you  get on  a different plane. That's why it takes so long.


There are non stop flights into Midway Airport.
