Leave it to Los Angeles: LAX has recently opened a new terminal dubbed the “Private Suite”—and as you might imagine, it’s for the rich. Members of the Private Suite, don’t have to deal with all the lowly, exhausting routines of the airport. This description on the website says it all,
“It typically takes 2200 footsteps from car seat to plane seat. For members of The Private Suite, it’s 70 footsteps.
And they are all peaceful footsteps.”
The security screening is performed in the private terminal and after relaxing in a gorgeous lounge complete with private bathrooms, private food pantries and daybeds, someone will actually drive you to the airplane in a BMW. If you’re concerned about paparazzi (because let’s face it, people who can afford this luxury terminal probably have that issue), fear no longer.
In case that’s not enough, eight staff members are assigned to each guest:
So how much, you ask, for this luxurious form of travel? It’s a $7,500 membership fee, plus another $2,700 per group of four people to fly domestically, $3,000 internationally. You might wonder how many people could actually afford this, but remember—this is L.A. we’re talking about. According to The Los Angeles Times, 1,200 people have already signed up.
