I om such a neophyte in travellng I was so spoiled with YVR.
At LAX Terminal 4 I have to pay for the internet;YVR offers a free one. At LAX Terminal 4 there are no TV viewing areas with any subject matter ; YVR has this in the waiting area when I went to Mexico on a charter years ago.
I wanted to use my bank debit card at the food place here, and the service representative advised that no store here will tke this debit card unless the VISA word is on it. I used my VISA and I did not sign, nor was I asked for my PIN? I am feeling so tired from sitting so much and there is no type of massage offers here at all, not even a chair massage; I saw this service in Vancouver and I was looking forward to getting a massage in LAX. Perhaps the problem is that I am in Termnal 4? But I can't hang around the main airport like one can in Vancouver. I feel quite containerized here.
then on another topic: my travel agent - she gave me the impression of working with and for me, it would have been nice if she would have discussed with me the ramifications of the long layover in LA. My friends talked to me about this after I showed them my itinerary, but the trip was now in stone, no changes. So beware neophyte travellers, before you pay, ask your experienced traveller friends to have a read!
Ohwell, Live and Learn.
