The Soon-to-be Glamorous and Cutting Edge LAX

The addition of the Bradley terminal and modernization projects across LAX are pushing the airport back into relevance, Dan Weikel reports for the Los Angeles Times.

Many of the LAX modernization projects were bogged down by politics, but now the airport is moving ahead with several plans:

"At least $4 billion is being spent on additions to the Bradley terminal, improvements to several domestic terminals and upgraded utilities and taxiways to handle the latest generation of super-sized jumbo jets."

"John L. Martin, the veteran airport director hailed for remodeling San Francisco's airport, says that 'any competitive advantage we had in terms of facilities on the international side will be going away' with the Bradley West project, now being built. It is to house a grand hall filled with upscale restaurants, posh lounges and luxury boutiques."
