About 2,000 people were evacuated from a Los Angeles International Airport terminal for more than four hours late Wednesday after the discovery of a substance that was found to be dairy creamer. The evacuation forced nine flights departing from the Tom Bradley International Terminal to be delayed, and arriving planes were rerouted to another terminal.

Re "A party despite delay," June 21 There is plenty of jubilation going around about the new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport, and deservedly so. 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.

Cheryle and Ernest Chin were anxious about getting home to Australia, and American Airlines wasn't making it easy. The massage therapist and her real estate developer husband had started out three days earlier in Brazil; they were still thousands of miles away, and the shortest flight of their multicontinent odyssey had just been canceled — San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Los Angeles International Airport will feature a new lineup of 60 shops and restaurants in selected terminals this year, an upgrade that's part of the airport's LAneXt project, according to a statement released Monday. The accent for the new terminal offerings is on L.A. chefs and businesses. Newcomers to Terminal 5 include the Mattel Experience, a stand-alone store that will feature Barbies, Matchbook and Hot Wheels, and Ford's Filling Station restaurant. Trendy Kitson opened up shop last week in Terminal 7. The shops and restaurants will be phased in by the end of the year, an LAX spokeswoman said.

The centerpiece of the modernized Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles Airport will be named in honor of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa because of his contributions to airport development. The city's Board of Airport Commissioners decided Tuesday that the cavernous Great Hall in the center of the expanded Bradley terminal will carry Villaraigosa's name. Commissioners noted that the mayor, who leaves office June 30, played a pivotal role in settling a 2006 lawsuit brought by a coalition of cities and neighborhood groups that challenged plans to modernize the airport, the third busiest in the nation.
