United’s new Mercedes service comes to O’Hare, but not LAX

Sorry Angelenos.

Los Angeles International Airport will not be the next United Airlines hub to receive special Mercedes service, which I detailed in a post yesterday. That honor is going to United’s hub at Chicago O’Hare International airport, according to this story. 

Just as in Houston, some of United’s best customers will be shuttled from gate to gate in chauffeured Mercedes-Benz cars. The passengers won’t know whether they’ll get the service, though. It’ll be a surprise.

Your intrepid reporter had a similar experience recently in Frankfurt, pictured below. If you love aviation, it’s darn cool to be riding around on the tarmac.
