The Proud Bird restaurant at Los Angeles International Airport will close for good on Nov. 21. But that’s not the way John Tallichet wanted it.
What airline serves four continents but has only five planes?
I’ll see if I can find some airplane swag for the first correct answer.
Leave your guesses in the comments section.
I’m thinking of one airline in particular, but I suppose it’s possible this airline is not the only one with that distinction.
One of the great things about California are laws that require anyone seeking to build a major structure here to analyze a host of environmental and historical factors before construction begins.
It is as a result of one of these reports that I have learned elephants once roamed the area on which the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport now exists. “These remains were recovered approximately 25 feet below the modern ground surface,” a report reads. Within 2 miles, experts have also found evidence of mammoth, horse, bison and speckled sanddab, according to the report.
In this case, it does not appear that the discovery of these remains has influenced any airport operations or building projects.
There is more good news, with respect to the new Midfield Concourse airport officials hope to build, to the west of the current international terminal. The report suggests that there are no “Native American sacred sites or human remains within the project property.”
Want to read one of these Cultural Assessment Reports for yourself? Here’s a link to one, studying a Midfield Concourse that is on the airport’s wish list.
The aviation-themed Proud Bird restaurant, a fixture of Los Angeles International Airport for five decades, plans to close in November, officials told me today.
It sounds like the price of the restaurant’s lease has been an issue. Airport officials told me the city charter precludes them from offering any tenant a long-term lease below market value.
The city of Ontario’s lawsuit against Los Angeles World Airports may proceed, a state court judge ruled on Wednesday.
Ontario officials contend that Los Angeles World Airports has mismanaged L.A./Ontario International Airport, which has lost more than 40 percent of its air traffic since 2007. The airport authority, a department of the city of Los Angeles, also manages Los Angeles International Airport and Van Nuys Airport
Ontario wants to regain control of the airport from Los Angeles and has sued to make that a reality. Ontario officials believe they could do a better job at managing the facility.
