Or, they could just be an operational mess these days. I flew out of American’s Terminal 4 at LAX late in the afternoon on New Year’s Day. This was the two-panel “Flight Departures” Screen in the terminal. The left pane correctly identifies the date as Jan 1, 2020, mid-afternoon.

Oddly, the departure times in the right panel are all consistent with early AM flight departures, so maybe it really was a window back two weeks into the past.
