I've been on a flight that was approaching LAX from the east (normal), but told pretty close to landing (3,000 ft. high, I would guess), to go around and land from the west. The pilot made an announcement about how the airport was switching the takeoff/landing direction.

Smart pilot -- I'm sure several on the flight would have gotten nervous had they seen only the dark Pacific below when they expected to see LAX.
