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 agency spending billions of dollars to modernize Los Angeles International Airport needs more financial oversight and relies on too many costly consultants, and a large number of change orders has driven some of the work over budget, according to a series of new audits by City Controller Wendy Greuel. Released late Friday, the audits evaluate the financial management of Los Angeles World Airports and its current $4.1-billion program to improve the Tom Bradley International Terminal, taxiways and the main utility plant at LAX, the sixth-busiest airport in the world.

Although work at the new Tom Bradley International Terminal is still incomplete, Los Angeles International Airport officials celebrated their success anyway on Thursday with outgoing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Instead of marking the Bradley's completion, which has fallen behind schedule, a series of airport special events will showcase the substantial progress that has been made transforming the outdated terminal and LAX, which has long received mediocre grades from travelers. “We've gone from worst to best,” Villaraigosa declared as he strolled through the soaring Great Hall of the Bradley 10 days before he leaves office.

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.

An emergency message displayed on monitors telling passengers at Los Angeles International Airport to evacuate was mistakenly triggered by a contract worker, airport officials said. At 9:47 p.m. on Monday, passengers at the Tom Bradley International Terminal alerted police to the message on monitors behind ticketing counters, which read, "An emergency has been declared in the terminal. Please evacuate. " A review of the airport's computer systems showed that an airline contractor with authorized access to the display system accidentally caused the override of screens that normally display the status of flights, according to LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles.
