Yes, LAX is the code for the airport. It is also the code used in one of the many hops in the LA area.... I was using it loosely to point out that, according to the reports posted in this thread, the primary consistency is that the (final) hops through the LA area have the worst lag on them (with the exception of those in Australia and south of the border). Whether or not the packet hops are even the source of the issue many players have been experiencing, Riot could deliver a faster overall connection to their server if it was located somewhere other than in LA. They will not achieve the best possible connections so long as it is there.
