LAX to Raise Landing Fees: Can the Airlines Take it?

With airlines dealing with sky-high fuel costs, can they take a hike in landing fees? They'll have to, according to an announcement from LAX. There's a danger this will encourage airlines to reduce flights to LA. Airlines are already cutting back; what will this do to Los Angeles World Airports' overall plans? It's unclear if goals for rebuilding LAX and distributing flights to regional airports remain relevant.
