What Is The Best/worst Terminal At LAX?

Tue Aug 24, 2004 10:31 am

I was just wondering what people's opinions about this subject are. I would have to say that A'A terminal 4 has to be the best, and AS Terminal 3 is the worst. T4 is new and clean and something I am proud of to have at my local airport. T3 is horrible upstairs, but in the baggage claim it's even worse. Today after my flight from RNO on AS I was picking up my bags, and two people were talking about how horrible T3 is. Terminal 3 is a total embarrassment. That's just my opinion though. What do you think?

I haven't set foot in LAX since about summer of '01, so I really couldn't comment on how it is now.

But back then, I would pretty much second your votes:

T-4 was just rebuilt and AA did a very nice job on it. T-6 also wasn't too bad.

And yes, T-3 was definitely stuck in 1975.

T1 is pretty nice. The only thing really wrong with it is the hordes of WN cattle that clog the security lines.

Please....don't remind me of T-1.

I have taken more pictures from that spot at the end than I have at any of the other airports I've been to.


And now, never again.....

I definitely agree that T4 (AA) is the best, with T5 (Delta) and T7 (United) being decent. And I agree T3 is horrible, and LAWA should put some money into updating it if they are not going to tear it (and T1 & T2) down.

Best: I really don't like any of LAX. The entire airport was a bad design, I really hope this proposed "master plan" that's on the LAX website goes through. So, my answer is, none.

Worst: TBIT...from what I've heard, it's as drab as a subway station past security...not the best for welcoming our foreign friends IMO

Since I have not seen T4 now that the rennovations are complete (are they?) I'd have to say the Bradley International terminal is the best... however, if someone has a photo of the completed rennovations, I'd like to see it. T3 was terrible.

T6 is okay; it is well-maintained but is stuck in the past with design. CO's gate area could use a renovation, however.
