Los Angelenos might be familiar with the #LAXisHappening campaign taking over Instagram and Twitter feeds. An elevated way of saying “pardon the dust,” Los Angeles International Airport has been undergoing a major facelift in the form of a Fred Segal boutique, not-your-typical-airport-food eateries and luxury lounges.
Of course, I couldn't help taking a peek while waiting for my flight to Kuala Lumpur a few weeks ago.
Thank goodness for Uber -- my secret weapon to getting everywhere in la la land.
As someone who has made LAX her second home by default (blame those 4am redeye work trips), I was delighted to see that the changes were not only aesthetically chic but that the overall airport experience changed.
There was still quite a bit of construction going on, but the line up of newly-opened duty-free shops and Sunset-worthy restaurants was impressive.
