Flights depart Raleigh at 7 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 6 p.m., arriving in Chicago after a two-hour, 20-minute flight. Flights depart Chicago at 8:55 a.m., 2:30 p.m. and 7:55 p.m., arriving in Raleigh in two hours.
The service is available via a 70-seat Embraer E-175 regional jet, with 12 seats in first class, 20 in Delta Comfort-Plus and 38 in economy. Every seat includes a power port and access to WiFi and entertainment streaming.
