It is not modernization, it is destruction. The plan is horrible, and yes, if they are allowed to go through with the plane, T1, 2 3 and the north side of Bradley will be demolished

As proposed in the plan, T1-3 will be demolished and replaced with a linear concourse (along with a new terminal to the west of the Tom Bradley International Terminal). However, this part of the plan is put on hold and will only proceed if it is greenlighted by additional committees and could possibly not happen. Hope this helps!

I actually dont see it as such a bad idea as terminals 1,2,3 are all old looking. They feel like back to the 70's in there. But that is just my opinion.

T1 is actually one of the newest terminals at LAX. It was built for PSA in the early 1980s (which is why US still flies out of there). Also, T2 was revamped big time in the mid-1980s when they got rid of the old "bubbles", the temporary buildings that served as the main international terminal before Bradley was built. PA was THE carrier out of there. Also, demolishing them is an idiotic idea, as it would severly limit capacity, even after the West Gates are built. All terminals need a bit of modernization at some point, but if you look at the job AA did with T4, and how they redid TBIT, they could easily do a lot with those buildings.

Also I would like to see them do something wither Terminals 7 and 8 as they are old too. But I hope that they get demolished and that the new "mega terminal" gets put up quickly.

First off, T4-7 will not be razed under any plan, and that includes satalite 8. The mega terminal you speak of is the west concourse and will be in addition to what we already have. That will be set up to handly 40-50 million PAX a year, which is 10-20 million less than LAX already sees so the World Way terminals will need to stay.
AAplatnumflier, AA's T4 is just as old as T7/8, it is just the AA spent a good deal of money refurbishing it. Right now, UA who hold 7/8 and part of 6 don't have the money to do what AA did. Actually, AA does not have the money to do it now, but the project was started about 5-6 years ago when AA did have ability to make the changes. It is like when you look at an airplane on the inside and think it is old because the interior is shabby, but someone goes in a 30 year old NW DC-9 and thinks it is brand new.

T-2 is actually one of the newest LAX terminals. The landside counter area is old, but the airside terminal was built in the late 1980s, completely replacing the old T-2 airside, which was the PanAm / international terminal before the Bradly terminal was built. It was not finished until a couple of years after the Olympic expansion in 1984.

T-1 was originally supposed to be the PSA / commuter terminal when it was built as part of the Olympics expansion. Terminal 8 and Bradly were built around the same time as Terminal 1.

The modernization plan will reduce the number of gates from the present level in order to limit capacity. Unfortunately, the only other airports in the LA area that have room for passenger growth are Ontario and Palmdale, each over 40 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

Terminal 8 was originally built with Terminal 7 and opened in 1961. It was widened and extended slightly by UA for their Shuttle operation in 1999-2000. It is used primarily now for United Express and Ted flights.

>AA's terminal may be as old as the rest but let me tell ya it sure is a heck of a lot newer. Terminals 1,2, and 3 look old. Ad least T4 looks newer!! <

That's because AA's Terminal 4 was remodeled and slightly redesigned recently as Terminal 5 was done in 1987-1988 when untertaken by Western Airlines before merging with Delta Air Lines.

Terminal 2 does not look that old as it's ticketing building was remodeled with a whole new glass and steel facade. It's concourse was built in 2 phases. The first, was constructed between the ticketing building and old Satellite 2, alowing operations to continue during the constriction. Once that was finished, it was opened where the old Satellite 2 was demolished where phase 2 picked up and extended the newly finished part of phase 1.

If memory serves me correct, the overall new construction of Terminal 2 all took place from from late '86 through mid '88.

My experience goes along with the consensus here - raze T3, but keep T2, a fine terminal as it is. I shudder to think what the "interim terminal" will look like between the destruction of Ts 1-3 and the construction of the new linear concourse. I guess time will tell...

They are taking it a few at a time. First they will demolish 1, 2, 3, and part of Bradley. Then the rest of the airport. It will be a setting like at IAD and ATL.
