LAX Upgrades

LAX is making a weak stab at upgrading its facilities. The airport stated last week that it will spend $60 million over the next 10 years to spruce up its facilities, USA Today reported on Monday. Planned upgrades include better lighting and signage and revamped bathrooms.

Terminal 3 will be the first to be addressed. Its principal airline is Alaska.

Too little, too late. These types of cosmetic upgrades should be made as a matter of course at a world-class airport. Does LAX expect us to cheer because it plans to install some signs and decent facilities -- and take 10 years to do it?

LAX has more in common with a Greyhound Bus terminal than any other major-city airport I've visited. They would have to spend $200 million over the next two years to bring that place up to snuff.
