Of all the airports in the world, LAX is likely the one with the highest ratio of celebrities per capita — Hollywood is the entertainment capital of the world after all.
But how do all those folks navigate the airport scene without commingling with the riffraff (also known as common folk like us)?
Well, United already had a tres exclusive system that allowed the stars to do just that.
But now, LAX is getting ready to unveil an entirely new terminal, known as the Private Suite, dedicated to stars and the uber-rich.
Slated to open on May 15, the offering will provide pampering to get A-listers from their cars all the way to their planes.
The new offering's website describes its demographic this way: "Members don’t walk down long crowded concourses, or line up at ticket counters and boarding gates. They don’t deal with baggage And they don’t deal with paparazzi."
And it also includes this juicy and jealousy-inspiring tidbit: “It typically takes 2,200 footsteps from car seat to plane seat. For members of the Private Suite, it’s 70 footsteps.” Not too shabby.
The luxury suites offer private bathrooms, daybeds, and picture windows with runway views. But best of all, each suite has a staff of eight people, who each have a dedicated responsibility to help the process run as smoothly and comfortably as possible — such as handling luggage, or whisking a star through security.
Suites also come stocked with snacks, and spa or medical services are also available for the set for whom time is not just money — but the only true luxury.
Of course, if you’re ever lucky enough to see the inside of the Private Suite, you definitely won’t wait in any lines: The space has its own so-called “lounge” for security screening. (We invite you to think back on your last security experience and consider how lounge-like it felt.)
And then when it’s time to board, you’ll hop in a chauffeured BMW 7-Series sedan and whisk your way across the tarmac.
And now, what you’ve all been waiting for: the price. To gain access, pay $2,700 for a group of four people traveling on a domestic flight, or $3,000 if you’re going abroad. Annual membership is $7,500.
Merely pocket change (depending on your tax bracket), right?
