    The new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport is scheduled to open to the public Wednesday. The long-awaited terminal, now tricked out with the latest technology, cost $1.9 billion for 18 new gates, a great hall and more than 60 shops and eateries.

    But it's not clear that all amenities and new airline lounges at the LAX terminal will open on time, an airport spokeswoman said. Retail manager Westfield on Thursday was still determining which stores and restaurants would be ready.

    The new gates, some of which opened in March, are the stars of the upgrade that was supposed to be rolled out in December. Nine gates are equipped to handle super jumbo jets such as the Airbus 380. (British Airways begins A380 service with an inaugural flight leaving LAX on Sept. 24.)
    The terminal's new features have already gotten notice. The Bradley terminal earlier this month won the 2013 Future Travel Experience Award for "best experience at the gate." The terminal "boasts a unique new design and a passenger-friendly ambience," an awards statement says.

    This will be so exciting to see. I've flown in and out with all the construction happening so next time I go to LAX (Feb 2014) I'll be looking for all the cool changes.
    The airport was getting very "tired" and not modern at all so up to date changes will be more than welcomed:).
