Re "Rehab Set for LAX Terminal," Dec. 8: Los Angeles International Airport is expected to have more 555-seat Airbus A380 arrivals and departures than any other international airport when the world's largest passenger jet begins flying in 2006. The law of supply and demand suggests that if the airlines want and need to fly that plane here, they should foot the bill to upgrade the Tom Bradley International Terminal to handle the increased number of passengers coming off such a large jet. It should not be the taxpayers' burden.

The Board of Airport Commissioners decided that the project labor agreement adopted by Los Angeles World Airports in November 1999 would apply to a new cross-field taxiway and renovations to the Tom Bradley International Terminal, including new gates on the west side to accommodate large airliners such as the Airbus A380.

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.

The airport will begin closing some lanes on departure and arrival roadways because of a $4.1 billion airport upgrade known by the acronym (trademarked, no less)
