Travelers Wait in Long Lines at LAX Terminal

Travelers stood in long lines to check in at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on Tuesday, January 4, as a combination of flight cancellations and technical issues caused extensive delays.

John Spiher said this video showed a line of Delta travelers outside Terminal 2 on Tuesday.

According to local media LAX passengers were rerouted from Terminal 3, which is closed for renovations. Delta Airlines also reported a luggage conveyor belt issue that was causing additional delays.

“Lines so bad there’s a news crew here,” Spiher wrote on Twitter, estimating the line to be over two hours long. “Does not seem likely I’ll be making my flight.”
