Safety, Capacity and the Ongoing Battle for LAX’s North Side

Hosted by

Marion Blakey, head of the FAA, was in town today at the request of the Greater Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. It wants Los Angeles International Airport expanded so that LA can stay competitive with other West Coast cities.  Passenger safety is also an issue, especially after two jet airliners came within 37 feet of each other last week on the northern part of the airport.  We begin the show with Ian Gregor, a spokesman for Marion Blakey.
