I was asked to comment on the continuing decline of traffic at Ontario airport. Really not the most accurate quotes, so let me clarify.

  1. LAX Tips – When I lived in L.A. I always did the reverse for drops offs and pickups. Only once was I wrong, who would have thought the Bradley terminal upper deck at 10pm would be the busiest area of LAX……lol

    ONT – I thought ONT was high for airlines to use so it didn’t see much traffic, plus the old….really old terminals and having to walk out and climb stairs to board. Are the terminals still old with no jet ways?
