Finally some real surge at LAX
Guess they're realizing peeps aren't going to pickup for crap rates. I'd turn on X if it was 2.2x. But no less and I would have to be down there when it was like that. Not making a special trip to hang out with the Mafia in the holding pen.
The difference is it only last a few minutes were platinum last for hours with no wait time outside of LAX. Just saying.
Thanks for the info.The difference is it only last a few minutes were platinum last for hours with no wait time outside of LAX. Just saying.
I hope it does surge. I know as soon as boost is over. I shut it off at laxThanks for the info.
There's certain times to be at lax when its busy. I agree if it's a quick surge, but this is the first time Uber has let it goto 1.9x. Hopefully its a sign of things to cme. There are 4 times during the week that there aren't enough cars to go around. It's easy pickings even for a select to get a ride.
Either Uber is becoming more popular at lax which is causing the surge or Uber is going to start letting it surge like it's suppose too. Any working incentives, keep in mind the end of the year, the week before thanksgiving all the way up to the day before Christmas Eve, you'll want to be platinum as LAX is crazy busy. There aren't even enough taxi cabs to go around. So hopefully we'll have some good holiday cheer and some 3x-4x surge rides coming out of there. If Uber has decided to apply the current surge formula to LAX that is used though out the rest of the city.
I'm a taker at 2.2x, I know I'll lose my 4.95 rating, but I really don't care.
Probably will happen, but that gives the same affect as ACRO as they put themselves back in the que and still has an affect on demand. I think the one variable to consider at lax that is different than the city is the people are tired from traveling. They just got off a plane that they may have been on 1-5 hours or more and just want to get home. I think the fatigue factor will play a role to encouraging them to take a surge ride. I'm not sure many of them want to wait around another 15 minutes waiting out the surge when the difference in price may only be $20.Idk if surge is worth it. If it takes like 10-15 minutes to reach a pax, won't they just cancel a surge ride and wait for it stop especially if they're going far...
It's either they pay, or they get no cars available. You can't have it both ways.It's 1:33am and it's still 1.5x at the airport. I don't think it's a glitch, more like Uber trying stuff out to see how much Surge the airport pax will accept before they start complaining publicly.
