LAX News and Updates

The City of Los Angeles maintains a website, separate from the Los Angeles World Airports website, containing information on terminal renovations, runway construction, the impact of the renovation and modernization work on traffic - including a real time traffic map - parking structure closures, and news and updates of dining options, shopping and other available amenities.
LAX is Happening
Along those lines, a couple of weeks ago, the Los Angeles Times published a guide on how to make (spend?) the most with one's time at LAX:

XpresSpa, which has 56 locations in airports around the world, is in the Bradley terminal between gates 154 and 156.

There's also an XpressSpa inside Terminal 5 near Gate 52a, and one coming to Terminal 6 next year.

Newcomer Be Relax, which features chair and table massages as well as other services, just opened in Terminal 1. You can make reservations online in advance.

The Bradley terminal has Rodeo Drive-like shopping options that include Bulgari, Burberry, Coach, Emporio Armani, Hermès, Hugo Boss, Gucci and Porsche Design.

Luxury travel retailer DFS, owned by Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, offers duty-free shopping in most LAX terminals, including the Bradley terminal.

The shops sell beauty brands Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Estee Lauder, Jo Malone, Kiehl’s, La Mer, Lancôme and more – terrific if you’re a gift-seeker or forgot to pack a go-to beauty item.

The Bradley duty-free shopping offers some products you can’t get at stores in other terminals, such as Christian Dior La Collection Priveé Fragrances. And the store offers gift-with-purchase promotions too.

Fred Segal, the classic L.A. brand, opened a store in the Bradley terminal.
___

When it's time for a bite, you won't be limited to fast-food unhappy meals.

L.A.-specific restaurants abound, including Border Grill, Chaya Sushi, James Beach, LAMILL Coffee, Larder at Tavern, Petrossian Caviar & Champagne Bar and Umami Burger.

LAX Modernization Update: August Construction Activities Expected To Cause Passenger Impacts

<snip>

The construction, part of a multi-billion-dollar capital-improvement program underway throughout LAX, will result in a modern airport that significantly improves the overall guest experience. Travelers using LAX in August, and during the remainder of the busy summer travel period, will need to plan ahead to navigate the sidewalk and vehicle lane closures and in-terminal work. Up-to-date construction alerts showing Central Terminal Area (CTA) roadway lane restrictions and sidewalk closures, as well as a pedestrian walking map and helpful airline terminal finder, can be found at www.laxishappening.com .
