Re: LAX Aviation Thread - 2019

Are they definitely building that horrible temporary facility?
As much money as LAX is spending on this renovation/additions, it still will be nowhere near a world-class airport. The infrastructure in this country is a joke.

Delta to open new LGA Concourse G in Fall

Governor Cuomo as well as Delta put out a press release with information on the opening of Concourse G in the Fall. They also released some updated renderings. Doesn’t seem to look as nice as Terminal B/Concourse B at all. http://news.delta.com/coming-view-delta-s-first-new-laguardia-concourse-open-...
