Lack Of Customer Interest Forces Burbank Airport To Scrap VIP Parking Plan
BURBANK (CBS) — A luxury valet parking service at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank has been eliminated due to a lack of demand.
Not one customer signed up for the $14,600 “Black Diamond” parking option at the airport, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The plan offered shorter wait times and extra-wide, covered parking spaces on reserve.
Standard Parking discontinued the service when it assumed management operations at the airport in February.
Other premium options including the $31-per-day Platinum valet service have also suffered from a lack of customers.
Parking revenue at the airport has been steadily declining for several months, the Times reported.
