Jet Blast,

When I speak of Runway I mean a connection from one side to the other side of the airport... your are correct that LAX is at capacity and Hangars can only be built back towards romote area like I stated before. person who is on the leadership oversight team for remodel of LAX world airports -stated those hangars are coming down and LAX wishes to build more gates because that =$$$ in take off / landing fees.

also the old Bradley gates are in the process of being torn down, I have no reason not to trust this source who in employed by LAX world airports, nevertheless time will tell.

and I agree with you with regards to

There is no possible way that the AA/CO hangars are being razed to make room for a runway. That area would be unusable for a runway. The only possible use for that land would be for additional passenger terminals.
The only space available for construction of an additioinal USABLE runway is south of 24L and that would require the removal of Terminals 1,2,3 and Bradley gates 119-123B.
Face it...LAX is very near max capacity in good weather and it's far over capacity in IFR weather. Due to noise abatement restrictions and the fact that the morons in El Segundo and Westchester built their dream homes within feet of the airport boundary, LAX has no reasonable options to increase aircraft ops. The increased mix of weight classes make it even less efficient.

USAir,

If your 'source' also told you Qantas is going to 15 flgihts a day, you might want to find a new source.

Without 3rd or 5th-freedom rights, it'd be impossible for Qantas to run 15 flights a day to LA. It would take 25-30 aircraft to run that many 14-hour flights each day.

Real AWA, interesting idea that PHX will grow if there is a merger. DP said in a crew news that PHX is a leisure market with limited revenue. The new head quarters will be in Dallas. A lot of PHX employees will not be needed when it is consolidated in Dallas.

JET BLAST,

Thank you for the comments... Like I stated before only time will tell and you reinforced my point with regards to QANTAS flights, you are correct that more Aircraft RONs will be needed to support the additional flights; as for how many, well you and I aren't purvey to that detail, Hence why QANTAS wishes to build a Hangar of their own. As for my source I will respectfully decline you're advice and continue to trust a member who is on LAX World Airports oversight committee.
