Going the extra mile. It was a pleasant experience, and felt like pure luxury. The driver was polished and courteous. He assisted me with my luggage, and made the trip care free. Thank you CLD to LAX for a 5 star service. keep up the good work! And thank you for working with my schedule. Even though there was a 10 minute delay in my flight arrival and their return schedule, some how they managed to wait and get me back to my family!
