No doubt there are folks who like Los Angeles International Airport, though it’s a bit of a mess, fortunately there’s a new Tom Bradley International Terminal rolling out in stages (the old one is one of the great embarrassments to U.S. aviation). Even that improvement though comes with its disruptions.
Personally the only two things I like about LAX are:
- That is has American’s best Flagship (international first class) lounge.
- That on long layovers you can take the Parking Spot – Sepulveda bus to In ‘n Out burger on the edge of the airport, sit outside and watch planes land.
No doubt many Angelinos would value better public transportation to and from LAX. The L.A. Airspace blog reports that the airports authority is mulling just that.
A simple underlining though should make clear why their plan is a bad one.
Los Angeles International Airport officials today outlined their plans for a possible new intermodal transportation center about a mile east of the airport.
At Washington Dulles, the question of whether to terminate rail 550 feet vs. 1150 feet from the terminal is a controversial one.
