Tons of flight options which is great. However, being one of the busiest airports in the world comes with challenges. Traffic getting into and out of LAX is a disaster, the terminals and overall property needs updating. If you live in the greater LA area you avoid flying out of LAX if you can. Then again, it is LAX so sometimes you can't avoid it.
They're slowly making some upgrades, but as far as big city airports go, I've seen much better. Traffic in and out is a real bear. If i can possibly fly out of Burbank instead, I will.
Under major renovation. Bring ear plugs and Excedrin.
If you have more than two in your party expect to take TWO TAXIS, as they don't provide transportation that can carry more than two people with large pieces of luggage, after a long, exhausting two week vacation!!!!!

Considering this is one of the busiest airports in the country, I?m surprised at how few problems I?ve had at LAX. It?s pretty easy to figure out the loop around the airport coming to drop off or pick up friends, and traffic moves through at a pretty steady rate. When I?m flying out myself, I think they do a good job getting people through security in a timely manner. Plus, I like that all the airlines have their own terminals. This airport definitely isn?t as unorganized as other ones I?ve been through, namely Dulles International outside of Washington D.C.
LAX is a good airport. There is plenty of parking, the airport police are nice and helpful and it is clean. Also I love the colored lights as you approach the entrance. If you want to get somewhere fast, it has the most non-stops to anywhere.

The Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX for short, is my second favorite airport in the country. I love the U-shaped approach lanes with the skip to Terminal 7 for the hurried. Parking nearby is convenient. And the lines always seem to be short and move fast as compared to other airports. The terminals are a little on the drab side but spacious and clean. Baggage claim is close to the plane exits. All in all, its easy to get IN, get OUT. That's why I like it.

THE EMPLOYEES ARE RUDE, NON-HELPFUL..................THE SECURITY ASKS YOU TO TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES, THE LEAST THEY CAN DO IS MOP AND CLEAN THE TILED FLOOR. VERY DISGUSTING FLOORS.IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PASS THROUGH LAX I ADVISE THAT YOU DO NOT. THE EMPLOYEES LIKE TO PLAY AROUND, WHEN YOU ARE ON STAND BY THEY WILL ARGUE WITH ONE ANOTHER ON WHO WILL GIVE THE SEATING SO THAT THE OTHER WILL NOT HAVE TO DO THE PAPERWORK!

I don't understand the stigma LAX has. I've found parking easily, and made it through security in 20 minutes on non-rush times. I think it makes sense not to expect decent or timely service when the place is packed. I just try to time my flights either extremely early or extremely late and it's perfect tolerable.
