After six years and millions of hours of labor, Delta Air Lines has officially completed the last phase of its $2.3 billion overhaul effort at Los Angeles International Airport.
The changes started in May 2017 when the carrier moved its huge operation from Terminals 5 and 6 to Terminals 2 and 3 — a massive process that only took about 10 days. One year later, the "Delta Sky Way at LAX" project led by Delta and the Los Angeles World Airports formally began.
The following five years saw the creation of a centralized check-in lobby, security checkpoint, and baggage claim area by combining Terminals 2 and 3. The airside gates, seating areas, and concessions were also modernized, with Delta even building a swanky new Sky Club and an exclusive Delta One check-in lounge with its own private TSA lane.
But, the most significant effort made — and probably the one most welcomed by travelers — is the new walkway that directly connects Terminal 3 to the Tom Bradley International Terminal (Terminal B).
The connector negates the need for domestic travelers to bus to their international flights, which had been a major pain point among Delta customers.
The complete transformation was unveiled on August 30 and Delta passengers can now access every part of the revamped Terminal 3, minus one gate still under construction.
To get a sense of the final look, Insider spent a day touring nearly every corner of the 1.2-million-square-foot space — take a look.
