I still wouldn't pick up at lax...I'm sure they are going to screw this up somehow. Either through permit requirements or staging /pickup area. It will be a cluster **** down there for a few weeks. Also I might have caught a sighting of UberComic at lax recently lol

It would be great if we could pull up to the curb to drop a pax at LAX and Uber uses its "technology" to already have the pick up pax standing there!

for the drop off set the exact destination "Lax Terminal 4, American-Premium", your pick up gets notified to get over to that spot because the driver is on the way... No waiting, no extra cars in the "horse shoe"

but for some reason I envision a parking lot full of Ubers... not the efficiency described above.

I like your plan but from international to about the middle of 6, I have no cell service. Might make it tough for precision strikes.

could take a bit longer, but it's inevitable.
