Reminder - MEDIA ADVISORY: Los Angeles Airport Officials to Present Year-End Travel Forecast, Conduct Walk-Through of Completed Sections of Tom Bradley International Terminal Renovation Project

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 19, 2007) -


WHAT:    As the year-end holiday season approaches, representatives from
         Los Angeles World Airports, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
         (C&BP), and the airlines at the Tom Bradley International Terminal
         will conduct a media availability to announce the holiday travel
         forecast for Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), LA/Ontario
         International Airport (ONT) and LA/Palmdale Regional Airport
         (PMD); provide travel information for arriving and departing
         international passengers; advise passengers on how to pack and
         dress appropriately for security screening; and tour sections of
         Tom Bradley International Terminal where significant renovations
         have been completed.  All officials will be available for
         one-on-one, on-camera interviews.

VISUALS: The tour will include the opportunity to film/photograph:
         (1) Gate 119 which reflects changes that the rest of the
         concourses and boarding gates will undergo; (2) the airlines'
         first-class and business-class lounges; and (3) the first of
         three phases of the Customs Arrivals Hall with new workstations
         for processing inbound international travelers and luggage
         inspections, and three new, larger and more efficient baggage
         carousels to accommodate next-generation aircraft.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Filming/photographing the Customs Arrivals Hall is rarely
         permitted and the airline lounges and Gate 119 are beyond
         passenger security screening.  Finished sections are adjacent to
         areas that are still in operation and have not yet undergone
         renovation.  Visual comparisons will be dramatic.  Media will go
         through passenger security screening.

WHEN:    9:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 20, 2007

WHO:     Representatives from airport administration, federal agencies and
         airlines.
         Spanish-language speakers also will be available.

WHERE:   Area B (meet-and-greet area) on Lower/Arrivals Level of Tom
         Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International
         Airport
