    how long is the wait at heathrow ? and what happens if u get a job from t3 to raddison hotel etc do you get ahead of the que when you come back ?
     
  2. 3-4 hours in the feeder Park, I believe.

    If you get a job and can get back within an hour you can bypass the feeder Park queue.

    Pointless it is not the holy grail more holy grave just full of drivers that are institutionalised and are Traffic shot.Waiting time sometimes 5 hrs I hear.

    The only time I worked it was 1985 when the pound and dollar were the same ..in and out within 45minutes to an hour and no charge to get in either ,it was fantastic apart from no agents so the rugby scrum was rough to make sure you didnt get offloaded with a rubbish job ie " that driver there does the locals" etc etc you had to be able to look after yourself :)

    Anyways what is feeder park? Newbie question, hey better a fool for 5 mins than forever, huh?
     
  12. It's where black taxis wait if they want to pick up at Heathrow, before they drive to the terminals.

    Can be hundreds of cabs there with waiting time in the hours.

    At least they have an organised (I'd believe) queueing system, unlike Uber.

    Just cos the thread is called black taxi drivers I thought id post this here.

    They are ****ing arseholes. I was at a pedestrian crossing, the green man is displayed but this **** of a taxi driver decides to stop ON the crossing. Had to walk around his pile of **** after calling him a ****. No wonder most normal people cant stand the selfish bastards.

    yet they have the utmost respect for uber drivers.

    and the administrators are low skilled, over worked and underpaid with wrongly placed attitude.

    3 to 5 hours in the airport queue? Screw that. In that time you could potentially get 3 more jobs to the airport.
