United to add Mercedes-Benz at LAX

In an article where Brian Sumers uses the term “travel caste system” to refer to perks for elites he writes

Under the program, United will drive some of its most lucrative passengers to their gates using Mercedes-Benz cars. Chauffeurs will meet connecting travelers at their arrival gates and drive them to their second flight.

Delta has been using Porches to do something similar and United has rolled out the Mercedes-Benz service in Chicago, Houston, Newark, and San Francisco already for their Global Service members.
