Luxury at LAX - Experiencing United's Global Services

Before a recent flight to Chicago, I had a chance to experience United's ultra-exclusive Global Services check-in at their new Global Reception at LAX. Global Services is their ultra-premium MileagePlus frequent flyer status, attainable by invitation only or by flying four million miles. I'll be writing about the entire experience later this week, but it was incredible. A representative called me the night before to coordinate my arrival. On arrival, she met me curbside and escorted me into their special reception area. After check-in, she escorted me to the lounge, via a private exit that connected right to the front of the security screening line.

I then relaxed in the new United Club lounge at LAX and even had a chance to experience their private VIP room as I waited for my flight to ORD. Here's a look at the Global Reception check-in process and a tour of the United Club.
