A Short But Sweet Ride: Gate-to-Gate Chauffeur Service

Many of us would probably place getting from gate to gate to catch a connecting flight in our top 10 list of travel pet peeves. For high flying high rollers this tantrum-causing travel inconvenience just got a lot sweeter.

Three major airlines offer a tarmac chauffeur service to their big spending frequent fliers to get them to their connecting flight in comfort and style. United Airlines teamed up with Porsche to provide this service. Delta has teamed up with Mercedes.

Not wanting to fall behind in the race to keep fabulous jet setters happy, American Airlines teamed up with Cadillac to provide it’s ConciergeKey club members with gate-to-gate service. The service will be test-piloted at Los Angeles International Airport, but American Airlines plans to expand the service to Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport, New York’s LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The service isn’t available by request and ConciergeKey membership is by invitation only! However, Cadillac will soon be offering frequent flier points for test-driving Cadillacs.
