The modernization of LAX has been just tearing through the airport in the last couple years—Terminal 6 and the first phase of the Tom Bradley International makeover are done, and Terminals 1, 2, and 5 are all in the works—and ground broke yesterday on Terminal 7, the United Airlines terminal. The $573-million overhaul "will refresh virtually all of [the] customer-facing space," adding a new ticketing lobby with self-tagging baggage kiosks (ooh), improving the security checkpoint, creating a new United Club lounge with outdoor terrace overlooking the airfield (fit for double selfies, apparently), and overall just making everything more "relaxed and inviting." The gate areas will get "a variety of comfortable seating options and abundant charging stations for customers' electronic devices." The work is expected to be finished in December 2017.
