All the drinking fountains and faucets in the airport's Terminal 6 were shut down yesterday after a construction SNAFU cross-contaminated potable water with recycled air-conditioning water lines, causing all the restaurants to be shut down. Systems were restored to normal this morning after a day of bottled water, hand wipes, and sanitizers were doled out to travelers. In other words, Carnival Cruises got nothing on LAX! [LAT; KTLA]
