* Members get an eight-person entourage
* No lines, and private security screenings
* You don’t even handle your own baggage
Beginning May 15, the rich and famous are set to have their own exclusive terminal at Los Angeles International Airport. Instead of taking the usual 2200 steps from the car to a plain seat, VIP passengers will only take 70 “peaceful footsteps.”
All is made possible by the eight-person entourage assigned to each member. One person escorts members to the gated compound, while a second person brings you to the suite. A third and fourth person handle special requests, and the fifth person takes you through TSA screening to a BMW 7 Series sedan, where the sixth person (a driver) is waiting. A seventh person escorts you to the aircraft, while the eighth person — who you never even see — deals with all your luggage. Of course, the same process happens in reverse when you return to LAX.
Membership costs $7,500 annually. You can also take a test drive (or, flight) with a trial membership. Trial members pay $3,500 for domestic flights and $4,000 for international flights, with service for up to three people.
