United Airlines, which operates out of terminals on the other side of the airport from the shooting, has issued a waiver for people traveling through Los Angeles, allowing them to change flights without paying a fee. Other airlines are expected to issue similar waivers.
"This situation is continuing to develop, and at this time we do not know the full extent of the impact to our operations," United spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm said via email.
JetBlue diverted flights from Boston, New York and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to nearby Long Beach airport. Southwest diverted at least one flight — a trip from Chicago that landed in Denver.
Allegiant Air, which operates out of the terminal where the shooting occurred, had most of its flight depart prior to the incident. One flight to Bellingham, Wash. is delayed.
