Does anyone expect more for one of the country's ugliest and worst major airports? "Air India is dropping its three weekly round-trip flights, which along with cuts by other foreign carriers is really bad news for an airport that has been pushing more international business," says Mark Lacter per the Daily Breeze over at LA Biz Observed. "The Indian carrier will still fly out of SF - and that's also bad news because LAX officials have been competing with San Francisco for the lucrative overseas business." 213 international weekly takeoffs and landings at LAX are expected to be slashed by November.
