For rich people who are not quite rich enough to fly private, the security lines at the airport have always been the great equalizer. Even if you’re flying first class, you had to stand in line with the rest of us poor saps, waiting your turn to be felt up by a TSA officer.
Well this week, the folks at LAX decided to put an end to that equality. The Board of Airport Commissioners unanimously approved a decision to build a terminal where cars can drop off their riders behind closed doors, the Guardian reports. While this is mainly meant to avoid paparazzi who love to take snaps of Julia Roberts in her sweatpants and neck pillow, it is also available to anyone who feels like spending an extra $1,500-1,800 on their trips. For that money, you can lounge in an executive lounge, eat fancy catered food and use special security lines. You only need to take 66 steps to get to your plane, as opposed to the 2,200 most people normally have to take.
The only question is, will the Kardashians use this terminal? Or will they continue to avail themselves of every possible opportunity to appear on camera? Only time will tell.
