Always hate when my day starts out good, then I get that fare to the airport that makes for a great start, then I get to the fork in the road. Head east or west for the next one. Decisions decisions and time is a ticking.
I like to go to the mall and wait, puts you closer to people not at the airport but still leaves you open for the possibility of an airport pickup if that's what you want. Being at the mall also puts you closer to the West Shore business/hotel crowd.Stay put in waiting lot and see where next fare takes you.
