    Hello!

    Newer member here started driving about a week ago and apparently this is very interesting timing. My wife and I were thinking of trading in our Traverse in for a Yukon XL prior to me driving which would qualify for UberSUV! Also a lot of folks I drive around so far tell me that I should look into black and suv since I already do things those guys normally do. Unless I'm picking up drunkards in the middle of the night and open doors and move my seats for the passengers, strangely enough I do it out of not wanting people to damage my own car!

    Now down to my real question, UberSUV is taking applicants in my area. Am I able to sit at the airport (pretty large airport) and filter to only Black/SUV? I've seen people here mention they can but I asked Uber and the following is their response: "No, you cannot filter to receive only higher tier requests as this will have a negative impact on your ratings and may lead to deactivation as it is a form of cherry picking."

    I don't want to be sitting at a Cowboys or Mavs game and go out to pick up SUV customers and end up getting a pair of drunk X clients wanting to go three miles down the road.

    Thanks for all your help!

    airport is tricky idk how it happens in dallas but some airports have a que system where u just get any ping given you.. but at events such as cowboys or mavs game just dont accept any X or pool rides and wait it out for an SUV or XL ride at a nice surge.. youll get the hang of it. good luck!

    Yeah I think I still may do it and start handing out business cards to the real black/suv clients. I dont believe there is an acceptance rate requirement so I guess I could just ignore the lower tier requests.
