Officials say that the 2.35 million passengers expected to go through LAX this holiday season is considerably less than years past. 14% less, in fact. But that doesn't mean there will be crazy busy days and one of those include today (the other days are Friday, December 26 & Friday, January 2. Last Friday was also one). So if you're going, arrive early, they say, especially between the times of 6 a.m. to 9 a.m./11 a.m. to 2 p.m./7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Then again, the weather out there is frightful, so delays, delays, delays could be the travel industry's mantra today.
