The summer travel season has arrived, and with it some more things to tell you about. Some of these changes are seasonal; others may last longer.

Speaking of seasonal, Air Berlin considers LA a seasonal destination, and they're back at LAX for the summer. They fly in from Dusseldorf and then return, using A332s. LTU used to fly this route, and Air Berlin continued it after taking over LTU.

Another seasonal route is LA-Anchorage, naturally flown by Alaska.

Apparently we didn't have enough flights to Chicago O'Hare, so both Spirit and Virgin America have started flying LAX-ORD. Spirit has also added service between LAX and Las Vegas. Jet Blue, meanwhile, has started flying from LA to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In the wake of Mexicana's disappearance, Continental has added service from LA to Mexico. So far, I've seen flights to Guadalajara and Del Bahio-Leon.

Sun Country and Aeroflot have both adjusted their schedules so that they arrive earlier. Aeroflot's new schedule has them leaving on the return trip to Moscow well before sunset.

Alitalia seems to have added flights; I've started seeing them on days that I didn't used to.


  1. Hello my colleague.
    I'm watching your nice blog and photos.
    Greetings from Istanbul...

  2. I was wondering if you know anything about the partial tunnel that was dug in the 60's to try and extend Lincoln blvd under the airport. I read a tiny blurb about it in the LA Times a few weeks ago. They had said it was going to be several lanes, but only got maybe 600 feet. Seems nuts that they would just stop, unless they had issues issues with the soil.

    Also I love your blog and always look forward to reading and learning from it.
