If you leave yourself in both queues, you will get both jobs and UberX jobs are more plentiful.

Most Airport rides are uberX, even if there's four people and 10 suitcases they're going to try to order an UberX first. It's cheaper.

However you can game the system when there is surging at the airport or events and there's no X available. Turn on your XL and turn off your X. Do the same with uberPet. Both these pay a higher price for the same ride. But like I stated, it's only good when there's a surge and a demand for rides. Otherwise people are just going to take X.

Our airports work a bit differently than yours I think.

It has nothing to do with geographics. It has everything to do with rider demand.
Unless your forced to have x on at the airports? Simply turn off X when your there?
Yeah some airports pick-up riders directly others holding bay depending on the airport systems.

In my city and airport it holding bay and can toggle rides etc.
