Should i still wait at airport?
First time waited 1.5 hours and got a $20 trip.
Second time on sat waited 2 hours and was 7th at que but unfortunately app became offline when i put the phone to pocket to go to washroom.
Third time, was on 60th in que but after 30 minutes became at 6th and que position disappeared suddenly and waited 15 minutes there thinking it may come again but not , so went out from holding bay and came back still no luck ...so there was one option to become offile but still i was not on que position then got frustrated and went to home but on freeway again it came with 65th que position...

I am still confused why it disappeared when i was at 6th... did anyone become the victom?

App plays up sometimes
Happens to me too. Just have to reset it and wait another hour or so for the next trip. Very unfair on us though but such is the world of uber!
It means we dont have any option whatever it is ,. Looks like uber sucks , two weeks before lost around 20 trips because of excuse of optus or uber whatever, i think we all should complain to uber rather then always thinking it may happen with the app. Time is precious. Really sometimes i think uber think of us as a slave ...do not have any support option ...

Keep persevering, and you will snag a base rate unicorn from the airport.It might take 5 years but she will come.

I don't know how could you get in the queue again when you are on the freeway.
If you are on half way to the Mickleham rd exit, you should not be pushed into the queue.
I suspect your phone's GPS location service may have some problem.
When you open your pax app while you are logged in, could you spot you correctly?
If it has the problem, that describes the reason why you are kicked out of AP waiting queue.

You're good ant mate.
Why are you waiting 2 hours for $20 trip ?

Go to any train station and I promise you that you'll make more.
We should encourage more ants into the AP holding bay, I think? :)

Someone please make guns legal so everytime I get a base fare to the airport I could shoot these ants in the head so that i am not left too frustrated Lol
Guns are legal you just need a licence

Shooting people for being an ant is a crime no matter what firearm you use - legal or illegal

Why the hell you wait all these hours for a job .. I work close to ap everyday I see the icon 100 plus cars waiting . For all the ants who are waiting at Ap for more than 30 mins for a trip well keep it on . While you guys lying in you car and waiting I will clear the suburbs and guarantee more dollar per hour

Yes I go into the virtual uber queue everytime I go out there in the taxi, only once have I got an uber job within the time I was queued at the taxi rank next door, and that was in the first week of its operation, so as an economically rational financially aware driver it defo makes more sense to queue in a cab rather than uber, by the time you take all costs and overheads into account probably twice better off in a cab.
