The terminal is being built in the exact same place as the current international terminal. About 2.5 feet to the west, if we're being technical. Nine of the 18 new gates will be able to accomodate the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Ugly Airports: LAX's 1,000-Foot Walk of Shame



LOS ANGELES (TheStreet) -- At Los Angeles International Airport, the world's sixth busiest airport and the third busiest international gateway in the United States, you would expect terminals and passageways that are stately yet functional.

Instead, if you are walking between terminals five and six, you get a long, narrow corridor bathed in fluorescent light, without windows or clear signage, filled with echoes of conversations and seemingly leading from one dead end to another. The corridor provides first-time users with the sense of being in the wrong place with no option but to continue, as the threat of a missed connection hovers.

In short, you feel lost in a horror movie or, at best, trapped into undergoing a clinical test for elevated stress levels.

China Southern to launch Guangzhou-Los Angeles A380 route from Oct. 12
(WCARN.com, July 26)

Quote:
China Southern Airlines will put Airbus A380 super jumbo on its Guangzhou-Los Angeles route on daily basis starting from Oct. 12, 2012, according to sources from Airline Route.
This marks the first international route for China Southern A380 super jumbo almost one year after the airline received its first A380 aircraft on Oct. 15, 2011. The A380 will replace the current Boeing 777-200ER to operate the service.



The Los Angeles-bound flight leaves Guangzhou at 21:00, with arrival in Los Angeles at 18:50, while the Guangzhou-bound flight departs from Los Angeles at 23:30, with arrival in Guangzhou at 05:50 (all local time). Reservation for the A380 flight has been available from July 26.
