Wow! You guys have it hard. Pax have to walk a long way to get picked up at the airport.

And you guys have designated pickup spots at the airport and hotels.

Only disadvantage is that we get paid crap here in Florida

Hello Florida! It's not always a bad thing to have structure and order and procedures and policies. Here in Las Vegas, we have 25 of the 50 largest hotels in the world... and we're building 2 more.

Around 42.5 million people visited here last year, so it's really important that everyone is on the same page and everyone understands what is needed for this well-oiled machine to work well.

Thanks for showing an interest in Las Vegas, and please remember... be at the damn pickup spot before ordering your Uber!^^ Cheers!

It stinks here.
I would imagine. Your airport is rather close to the strip and taking folks from one nearby hotel to another nearby hotel can't pay much.

Oh! 42.5 million!

We only got 72 million last year

While yes your hotels are larger, we've got more hotels to accommodate the 72 million visitors. And we pickup and drop-off where we want. :)

You're more than welcome to visit.

Please don't misunderstand my post. I had no intention of saying "my city is better than your city" Orlando has always been our biggest competition for trade shows and conventions. And if I ever wanted to drink a couple Rolling Rocks and visit Gatorland, then Orlando is at the top of my list.

You validated my point. Orlando has more, but smaller hotels spread out over a greater radius. Its easy to meet your passengers at the front door or wherever they happen to be.
Designated pick up spots make our job EASIER, not harder. Can you imagine driving around a 7000 room hotel looking for passengers? Our hotels are much, much larger and within a 3 mile radius. We're just different animals and designated pick up spots help drivers here... either the passengers are there or they're not.
