Los Angeles World Airports congratulates Long Beach Airport for landing JetBlue service, starting later this summer. We join The Times ("Airport Pact Points the Way," editorial, May 25) in recognizing this as an important first step by Long Beach in helping to spread the increased demand for air traffic across the region. We, however, respectfully disagree with The Times that LAWA needs "a goad" to attract more business for airports it owns and operates at Ontario and Palmdale. To the contrary, it was LAWA marketing efforts that first brought JetBlue to Southern California via Ontario International Airport, with nonstop transcontinental jet service last summer.

Windy City-Bound: NBC's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" will travel to Chicago for five nights starting April 29. The road trip, planned to coincide with the all-important May ratings sweeps period, marks the first time the entire "Tonight Show" has visited the Windy City. (Leno made a solo trip there in February 1995 to tape some comedy sketches.) Meanwhile, a previously announced "Tonight Show" trip to New York, originally scheduled for this spring, will take place in November, NBC said.

Bowing to growing pressure, including protests from two powerful congressmen, the president of the Los Angeles Airport Commission has postponed an 11th-hour vote on a controversial lease at Van Nuys Airport. The decision by commission President John J. Agoglia to accept bids up to Aug. 3 was welcomed by some city officials and potential bidders, while others said it did not go far enough. The postponement follows a letter by Reps.

On the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month, as he wields the gavel at City Council meetings, El Segundo Mayor Mike Gordon deals mostly with such local concerns as where to put a skateboard park and what to do about leash-law violators. But Gordon has spent many of his other evenings during the last couple of years on a collision course with Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and his powerful allies. And Gordon--whose 16,000 constituents number but a tiny fraction of Riordan's 3.

At first glance, it seems too much for many politicians to resist: $12 billion worth of construction contracts that would generate thousands of new jobs--a bonanza for workers that would largely be funded by the airline industry. But in this case, the proposal--expansion of Los Angeles International Airport--is far from a unifying topic. Indeed, among the six leading candidates for mayor of Los Angeles, four oppose the current plan.
