As we mentioned yesterday, Los Angeles International Airport last year recorded its highest passenger traffic since 2000. And it appears on its way to breaking a new traffic record in 2014. Could it reach 70 million passengers? It’s very possible.
The table below shows the largest 10 airlines at LAX in 2013. You’ll notice the the seventh-largest airline, Skywest, isn’t really an airline at all — at least in the traditional sense. It’s a commuter airline, and it flies as United Express, Delta Connection and American Eagle. (As well as US Airways Express and Alaska Airlines, though not from L.A.)
