Hey, Britney, Delta is building a room for super VIPs

April 07, 2013|By Hugo Martin

When Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced a $229-million upgrade to Terminal 5 at Los Angeles International Airport last week, he said the money would double the size of the lobby and pay for new carpeting, new baggage carousels and new facilities for international passengers.

The terminal is dedicated mostly to Delta Air Lines, which is putting $12 million into the modernization project.

What the mayor didn’t mention were the new fixes planned for Delta Sky Club, the exclusive lounge were VIPs can order a free drink, munch on snacks and watch cable television while waiting for their flights.

Delta officials say they plan to remodel a small, separate room within the lounge where celebrities such as Britney Spears can relax without creating a scene.

In other words, Delta is planning a VIP room for super VIPs.
