Today marks the first day of the year-end holiday travel period, which has LAX officials telling people to really make sure you arrive early... especially on the four busiest days:

  • Friday, December 19
  • Monday, December 22
  • Friday, December 26
  • Friday, January 2

2.35 million passengers are expected to run through the halls of LAX over the next two weeks. That's 14% less than last year, but still a lot of people (especially for the security line at Terminal 7).
