The first thing you'll notice about the Los Angeles International Airport (also known as LAX) is its great size. They have airplanes that will fly anywhere on the planet. They hold airplans of all different sizes that will take you anywhere. The horrible park is the traffic on holidays. If you're flying somewhere on the holidays, you can already say your flight will be delayed. This place will be cluttered with people trying to move and scrape around, trying to get their bags checked so they can get onto their flight. Traffic - as in car traffic - around the airport is horrific, its bumper to bumper, and human traffic inside the airport is really horrible during the holiday seasons. To park inside the parking structure will cost you a pretty buck - about 7 to 8 bucks to be exact, so you better do a drop off if your dropping someone off. Being a big airport, sometimes lines can take forever to get through. Also, the airport is filled with restaurant and souvenir stores that are stocked filled with overpriced junk. The restaurants are your regulars - such as McDonalds - but they sell their items at inflated prices - about a dollar or two more than a regular McDonalds well sell something. However, if you look at the airport at night, it is quite a beautiful sight. The lights off the LAX sign and the light poles are a thing of beauty. The ugly part is trying to get around the traffic.
