LAX Private Terminal Opens in May

It's no secret that a lot of celebrities fly in and out of LAX.  A couple years back, we flew with Zoe Saldana and her entourage on Singapore Airlines from Singapore to LAX.

LAX is a congested airport - traffic, security lines, lounges and public spaces are all places where celebrities or bit time executives can be photographed, bothered, or just generally inconvenienced.  One solution might be to fly private but that might be prohibitively expensive when flying to NYC or internationally.  The latest solution is a completely separate terminal - the PrivateSuite.

The terminal is schedule to open in just a couple of weeks.  Located on the other end of the airport, the members only terminal claims to cut the walk from curb to plane down from 2,200 steps to 70 steps.

Not sure why anyone with a Fitbit would want to lose 2,000+ steps especially before sitting on a plane for many hours...clearly I'm not the target market for this service.

As you can see, this service isn't cheap.

The terminal will have a dedicated TSA checkpoint and chauffeur members direct to plane with a fleet of 7 series BMWs.

Waiting rooms will feature seating, daybeds, a bathroom, views of the tarmac, and food/drink.

They claim to have sold more than 1,000 memberships already.  Only in LA!
