That's what the platinum terminal is for sure

In my world, the passengers drive to the side of the aircraft, no queues, security, nothing, at the destination another car awaits them and off they go.

They have “people” to worry about baggage etc.

Sold! We need more seaplanes today. And flying boats. And airships.

I'd be wondering then where the craic is in that for them. If I was ever lucky enough to be able to afford one I'd be trying to spend a good part of the year on it touring around but what you mention is exactly what the stereotypical superyacht owner does - it's like they just want their own private floating hotel without really taking advantage of the fact that it's floating
