it's surging around the airport, 2.9, but of course not inside. Anyone buying what they are selling?

Poor nubes, getting sucked over there to get any 8 or 9 dollar ride.

Yeah I'm watching this too, they must have changed the algorithm again to make it so drivers can't make the airport surge. Oh well.

I was an idiot and went into the queue today after an airport run, ended up waiting 41 minutes and got a Lyft pickup and not an Uber, ended up being a $9 ride. Lesson learned.

So I'm hearing that the ultimate plan is to get rid of the surge. Which is obvious to see because it's getting more difficult to get the surge rides so obviously these surges are more manipulation than actual demand which is pretty dam fraudulent. Ultimately it's pretty much class warfare. The haves are getting served by the ignorant have nots.

that's correct, that's why I only had 4 rides this week. I'm not going out unless it's surging or selecting. Have to say though, they don't need us here in rdu. I was reminded of that fact when I saw how many drivers were willing to endure the 1/2 hour trip to the pick up zone. There had to be 500 drivers out there trying to grab their little piece. They are probably willing to drive at 2am for no surge and they can have it.

There was 150-200% PT at the airport this morning, but I can't get a Lyft ride at the airport. I've watched my place go steadily down in the queue, and then for no reason whatsoever, I'm out of the queue. Also far fewer early morning flights. The LAX and Denver flights don't happen anymore, the SFO and Boston flights have moved to the 7-8am hours.
