Queue full "5+ cars" position

I just got in queue at the airport here and there's a "+" after number 5.

Does anyone know what that means?

This is what appears to me.

It's a small airport, until last night it would show your queue number, 6, 7, 10 and so on. But today is different. I can't see exactly what number I am in when I come in. I have no idea if I'm number 6, or number 11.

Did this change for anyone else driving from airports?

Yes, it changed everywhere. Makes it difficult to know if you're car #10 or #100.

That unfair. I have no idea if I'm number 17 and should give up and go somwhere else or stay cause I'm number 6.

Exactly! Uber will keep you guessing, until you see that IN QUEUE 1-10 cars message. This is how Uber manages to get all the ants to the airport staging areas. Then you see that IN QUEUE message after waiting 55 minutes. Uber then logs you off after 60 minutes. And you start all over again in back of the queue. Have fun! :frown:

Maybe it means that they fired the only guy at Uber that knows how to count using more than the fingers on one hand.
Or maybe it means that Uber decided it was a nifty way to keep drivers at the airport, hoping they'll get a fare "soon". There's a big difference in perception and behavior between knowing you're #17 in queue and actually being #17, but being told that you are 5+.

It hasn't changed at MIA...yet. Hopefully it either won't change, or they'll set the Full Queue number at a realistic level.

Did they change LAX or John Wayne?

The blue ring around the ping circle tells your position. Let's say the queue says 1-10. If no segments of the ring are blue, you're 10th. If the first segment is blue, you're 8th, etc.... once all segments are blue, you're 1st in line.

In the photo shown, you'd be 2nd or 3rd.
