Construction began Thursday, and passengers will enjoy a larger ticketing lobby, with a full service bar, new baggage carousels, and a VIP lounge. On a more negative note, a new strain of bird flu in China that has killed six people is making travelers wary about flying to the region, and putting stress on airlines like Delta which offer services to the country, and driving stocks down.
