Tired of paparazzi harassing you at LAX?

Pity the poor, tired celebrity in yoga pants and Uggs, looking like a hot mess after a long flight fighting the paparazzi on the way to the limo — actually, that does sound terrible.

At LAX in Los Angeles, Delta Air Lines is throwing the celebrities a bone, thanks to its newly renovated terminal. After purchasing a first-class ticket, for just $350 extra, a Porsche hybrid will meet arriving celebs on the tarmac and drive them through a secret tunnel to meet their own drivers out on the street. 

Departing travelers can use their own VIP entrance and secret corridor, and even get an escort to a private lounge.

So do you think you need a famous person ID card to do this? Or will good old money suffice? 

Somebody try it and let me know.
