Am I the only that thinks there should be a coffee machine at the airport uber area where you wait for airport ride? They got a bathroom why not little shop where they sell coffee, donuts, and other goods?! I think that'll make the taxis on the other end very jealous!!

Great spot for a budding entrepreneur to start his or her own business. Unfortunately I think the Airport Authority would have their grubby hand out looking for a cut....

I bring a thermos. Cheap, and I prefer tea (which isn't very good at most places)

But not a great spot for making money Ubering. I was there earlier and there were around 20 cars, and only a couple small planes arriving.

Besides, the queue system doesn't always work well. I've stopped just to use the bathroom, and got an airport ping, despite there were a dozen people already waiting there. Also had the opposite happen to me, when I tried waiting the last time. There were only 3 cars in the lot when I arrived, but about 8 cars went out before I got a ping (cars that had arrived long after me).

Taxi area has a washroom and dining room as well.
Coffee shops are only allowed inside the airport. If you want cup of coffee, you got to go inside

I completely agree!!! I only go to the airport waiting area when I already had a trip going to the airport AND there's only 12 or less cars there.

Yeah, the bathroom is gross. Uber sent an email recently about litter at the lot, but the trash can in the bathroom is always overflowing.

The issue in here is that we are lacking of discipline. A coffee machine is great but just looking at the washroom daily status is not just convincing.

Snack bar will definitely never fly, for the reasons noted above plus the fact there is simply not enough traffic to justify to an entrepreneur, not to mention the capital costs involved.
