TRAVEL ALERT: Fliers Delayed After Los Angeles Airport Shooting

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - Thousands of fliers are delayed Friday after a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport closed parts of the airport for hours.
    
Flights heading for Los Angeles, which had not yet taken off, were held at their gates by the Federal Aviation Administration. Others in the air - including three JetBlue flights from the East Coast - diverted to other airports.
    
Travelers hoping fly out were unable to reach Los Angeles airport because of road closures.
    
Los Angles is a major gateway for flights to Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The shooting occurred just before a large bank of flights arrived from Sydney, Tokyo, Beijing and other cities across the Pacific Ocean. Domestically, the largest cities served are: San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, San Jose, Calif., San Diego and Phoenix.
