    I wonder how many taxis turn up as uber X and if they do a X trip or taxi. I am pretty confident that most of the queue at the domestic airport are taxis. Are they just effin us up or are they accepting X rides ?

    I think the large queue is mainly Ubers dropping off pax, then just ending up in the queue and taking 5+ mins to get out of the queue.

    I think there would rarely be over 30 genuine drivers waiting. When they queue is very high I've found it moves pretty quickly till it gets to the 20-30 point.

    Then it depends on demand. So that would tell me it's drivers who drop off and have no intention of waiting. Just trying to escape the geo fence.
     
  3. Theres all kinds of mayhem going on at the airport queue from ghost drivers like you said just using up a number in the queue to inflate its congestion to those ghost riders who make fake requests to pull a driver out (you get to go back in, but only 3-4 rider cancels i think before you are out - unless its changed now) only to cancel a few mins later. then you have the priority system (ever noticed you have lost ground while in the queue?), well thats because someone has bumped ahead of you. its only a small part of the general way things work there.
