NEW YORK - The bus was standing room only as travelers hauling luggage jostled for space amid the commuters and other local riders. Two men with skis, ski boots and backpacks squeezed into the nook beside the rear exit, blocking the door. A woman with two children and three suitcases struggled to drag the bags up the narrow aisle as the bus bounced through Manhattan and Queens to its destination: LaGuardia Airport, otherwise known as "America's worst airport.

However, once the terminal opens, arriving and departing passengers will still face the same problems that have built up over the last 60 years. The traffic congestion caused by shuttle vans, cars, taxis and no presence at all of rail transport keeps LAX in the dark ages. It's going to take more than just spiffing up one building to create a world-class airport.
