6pm on a Tuesday and only 9 people in the queue.. yet it NEVER serges. I was tempted but I remember the last time I was there and when I was down to getting my request it suddenly kept telling me to drive to the staging area - I was in the staging area! Nope Uber you will not be burning me twice.

Funny thing is, I was there at 5:45pm yesterday with a drop off and got a pick up before I even finished dropping off my ride. Don't get it.

This is exactly what is killing the surge. Anyone dropping off at the airport jumps to number #1 in the queue. This is if requests are happening and happens majority of the time.

Just ignore this, it's an issue with the app.

If there are 9 people in the queue, this is when you open the Flight Aware or Flighstats app and see what flights have landed or are coming. If you want surge, you have to go offline and wait for the surge. Surge does not happen when drivers in the queue. I think about this time, there was a surge prior to 5:45PM and I am sure drivers were making them round trips back to the queue.

3 years ago, the airport definitely could not surge. They turned on airport surge mid/late 2015. I think it was uncapped because I saw dfw hit 4.5X.
