Funny my niece was at LAX waiting an extra 24 hours for her flight to Sydney on United.

Hope her flight goes as well.

How lax can an airport be?

Well United was refusing to give her a room voucher in spite of delaying her 24 hours due to their plane in Chicago breaking down.

That sounds lax to me. Also very lame for a teen on her first solo trip.
