LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Officials at Los Angeles International Airport are bracing for what is expected to be the busiest day of the year.

Roughly 167,000 people are expected to pass through the airport Monday.

Peak crowd times in the airport’s nine terminals will be between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m.
