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.

Travelers arriving in the United States can now use automated kiosks at Los Angeles International Airport to go through immigration and customs without standing in line. Officials on Thursday unveiled the kiosks at four LAX terminals where federal officers process passengers from arriving international flights. Three are in the Tom Bradley International Terminal while Terminals 2, 4, 5, and 7 have one each. Cristina Gamez, a spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said the devices scan passports, immigration documents, photos and fingerprints of passengers who have qualified for the agency's new Global Entry Program.

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.
