Medela Freestyle or PIS

First time Mom looking for recommendation on whether to purchase a Medela Freestyle pump or a Pump in Style?

Want to make sure whatever I purchase will work just as well. I do hate having to be locked down to one spot to pump so many times a day.

This does not include extra time to be at the airport and I am unable to pump during the layover in Atlanta. (I hear you have to run to the gate to transfer flights). I am worried about...
