Los Angeles airport commissioners ruled Wednesday that Los Angeles should continue to operate Ontario's international airport despite a request by Ontario to buy back the facility. "I think they felt the timing was just inappropriate," said Lee Nichols, spokesman for the Los Angeles Department of Airports. "There are a number of significant things coming down the pike."

The city of Ontario wants to buy back the international airport it sold to Los Angeles in 1967, saying the current owner has not moved fast enough to make improvements necessary to cope with the facility's explosive growth. Ontario Mayor Howard Snider, who broached the idea at a Los Angeles Airport Commission meeting Wednesday, has threatened to halt local funding for certain airport-related projects if the transfer of ownership is not approved.
