"It all comes down to our guests being informed and taking the necessary actions to make sure they are in the right place at the right time to catch their flights", said Los Angeles World Airports CEO Deborah Flint.

The big shuffle at Los Angeles International Airport resumed Sunday and airport officials are recommending travelers arrive at least three hours early for domestic flights and four hours for international.

And when it's time to catch the flight, privileged travelers get a private vehicle ride across the tarmac to the aircraft, head-of-state style.

It's being called "premium class" - a terminal far from the crowds and lines of public concourses.

The move, which is due to finish on May 17 will see Delta shift from terminals 5 and 6 to terminals 2 and 3, which delta officials hope will reduce delays and speed up take off and landings. A team of eight attendants handle their luggage and whisk them through a dedicated security gate into one of more than a dozen suites.

LAX said passengers should check with their airlines' official website for the most accurate information on the location of their aircraft and advised travellers to check in, print or download boarding passes before leaving for LAX, so they can be aware of the changes and arrive at the correct terminal for their departure.

They are also encouraged to arrive earlier than usual - three hours for a domestic flight and four hours for an global flight.

Travellers taking global flights are being asked to arrive four hours ahead, while domestic passengers need to arrive three hours early. Those who purchase an annual membership for $7,500 will get a discount of about $1,000 on per-flight fees.

The terminal was built by a security consulting firm that says it will generate $35 million in revenue for the airport over the next nine years.

It is based on a facility at London's Heathrow Airport that offers private high-end service for members.

The move is already well under way with Delta and multiple other airlines having relocated their ticketing machines and various other equipment to their respective new terminals, but the process still has a long way to go, with Delta expected to utilize the full allocated time period for the changes.

De Becker said it's in negotiations to open a similar one at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
