A better way to travel to and from LAX

Aug. 13, 2021

If you are looking for the very best way to travel to and from LAX, look no further than PS LAX, the 13 posh private suites at a private terminal at LAX that provides seamless service to those flying on commercial aircraft, including expedited TSA and customs and immigration. Then there is the awesome ride across the airfield in a Series 7 BMW that takes you to your flight. Their newest service, The Salon, is by far the most lux airline lounge in the country but better as they drive you directly to your commercial flight in a Cadillac Escalade.
