Major hub airports around the country are in competition over such amenities in hopes of attracting passengers, especially those in transit who can be tempted to spend money while on a layover.
With the work about 95 percent complete, tours of the improvements are being offered Friday to members of the news media.
Among the new offerings is a local gourmet deli called The Goddess & Grocer and a restaurant overseen by chef Rick Bayless.
There will also be an Emporio Armani and a Michael Kors shop.
