Los Angeles airport officials are in the midst of creating an office to encourage airlines to direct flights away from bustling LAX to regional airports, such as Ontario International Airport, but John Wayne Airport is not included in the plans. “AirFair supports the efforts of Los Angeles World Airports/LAX to lend a helping hand to Ontario Airport, which has suffered more than any other Southern California airport in the current economic downtown of the airport industry.

I’ve seen some poor losers before but none as sorry as the weed-huggers against the city hall in the park issue. They say the election was bought. Indeed, “No on B” supporters tried to buy it with false statements. The argument No on B proposed that traffic congestion was a prime issue was totally specious because the alternative property considered was right around the corner in the same vicinity. Get over it, and get on with doing something positive like helping plan the park you so desperately want in the remaining acres.

Your editorial Sunday, "China trip could open doors for business," has a disconnect. China will find Orange County's airport capacity to be woefully short of the needs of overseas commerce. John Wayne Airport, a tiny airport with a 5,700-foot runway, is inadequate to handle overseas trade. It has been expanding rapidly (21% in the past year) and is almost up to its full capacity. Why would active trading partner China not prefer a county which has an adequate airport?

While it won’t solve the issue, a local group says it’s found a way to steer away more than a million travelers from landing at John Wayne Airport and help relieve some of the pressure on the facility to expand. “Any amount of traffic we can get diverted is key,” said Jeanne Price, one of the founders of AirFair, a local group dedicated to keeping John Wayne Airport from expanding. AirFair hosted a presentation Friday by Peggy Ducey, a consultant hired by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA)

AirFair, a local airport watchdog group, has proposed an intriguing remedy to help muffle the noise in local skies: Ontario. AirFair hopes that by offering rides and discounted tickets, Disneyland-bound air passengers will choose the more-distant gateway in San Bernardino County instead of John Wayne Airport. A recent survey found that 1.3 million passengers to JWA are going to or coming back from Disneyland — no small segment of the airport’s 9 million annual travelers.

The airport watchdog group AirFair hopes a plan to lure Disneyland-bound tourists to Ontario International Airport with incentives like fare rebates and shuttle rides will help siphon some passengers away from John Wayne Airport. “We think it’s a win-win situation for all involved,” said AirFair President Melinda Seeley. “This would take a percentage of our air traffic and divert it to Ontario, which is dying for more passengers.” The group will host a forum on the issue at noon Dec. 4 at the Santa Ana Heights Fire Station Community Room, 20401 Acacia Ave. Los Angeles World Airports, which runs LAX and Ontario Airport, is working on a plan to give incentives to Disneyland visitors who fly through Ontario.

Paul Clinton JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT -- About the same number of travelers funneled themselves through the airport in the week leading up to Christmas Day as the year before, bucking a nationwide trend away from air travel. Though airport officials could not provide data for the final week of the year, preliminary numbers showed that traveling was steady during that period as well, said Ann McCarley, John Wayne Airport spokeswoman. "Some of the numbers were up, and some were down," McCarley said about the period from Dec. 20 to 24. "Holiday travel was comparable to last year's numbers."

The French know how to keep track of shopping carts There is no problem in Italy or France and maybe other European countries with abandoned shopping carts, and there wouldn't be here if the markets would use the same cart system. It's sort of like the airports have. In order to get a cart, you have to put coins in a device that all the carts are attached to, and when you take the cart back, you get your coins back. If someone doesn't want their coins back, there are plenty of people who would be happy to take the cart back and get the money.

Orange County Supervisor Charles Smith recommends selling John Wayne Airport to raise money to pay off the county's bankruptcy debt ("Supervisor suggests possible JWA Sale," May 8). One possible buyer would be Los Angeles World Airports, the Los Angeles agency that already owns and operates Los Angeles International, Ontario, Palmdale and Van Nuys airports. Last year, Smith actively supported Los Angeles' unsuccessful attempt to take over El Toro and run it as a satellite of LAX. Who would win and lose from such a transfer of control?
