What travelers really want to do is talk to their companions, read a book or use their electronic devices.

Los Angeles airport officials on Tuesday told a City Council committee that improvements in training, communications and emergency management are on the way in the aftermath of November's deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport. The measures include better communication and coordination between airport and public safety command centers as well as an expanded emergency notification system for airlines, LAX concessionaires, hotels and ground transportation companies.
