On Thursday thousands of people arrived from interstate and overseas. Zero waiting time. Straight out of the nest and onto pickup lane.

Now it's Monday a lot of people coming back. Time to clean up again today. ZERO cars again in the nest

Just in case you or anyone ran out the door to storm your way to the airport, please come back.

Average waiting time still probably 2 hours plus.

Actually that was my experience on Thursday around 3. Nest full, queue showing Zeros. Checked the pickup area and there was only two riders waiting and one told me his uber was on the way. I bolted back to essendon and got busy. The long long weekend has spread the demand over more time. Many on leave until after next weekend. Teachers expecting a quiet week at school.

Don't get too excited. Reports coming in from site say a fat pelican sat on the WiFi mast and has a huge dump that leaked into the transmitter via the small air vents. Knocked the geofenced WiFi out, and hence the virtual queue. A Cisco repair crew has been dispatched Priority 1 to get it fixed.

This morning drop off a pax to the AP. It was very early morning. Went to the nest for a leak and saw couple of lovely chap, having coffee and smoking. They did say hello to me and I casually asked them if there were many flights coming in this morning and left.
Couple of hours and $100 later went to drop off another pax and went to nest again.
You guessed it, both of the chap were still there.
I was like, seriously!!!

Maybe these folk are collecting the Rock n Roll (the Dole) and are using the old “ I’ve been looking for work at the Airport” trick!!

Trying to straighten out all the lefties up that way.
lol, thats what i love about this country - so many outspoken people with no idea wtf they're talking about...grow up in a ''lovely egalitarian'' society where mom needs to wake up at 3 am to queue up for a rationed loaf of bread in freezing cold, tiny serve of meat once a month, sugar scarce commodity and we pick this conversation afterwards... an utopian society sounds great reading it on paper in the comforts provided by capitalism but when one actually gets to experience the daily hardships that come along with the notion of ''being equal''...well that shit gets old pretty quick, all i can say about it...
