This is how desperate they are to get you into that dumb pool. They're like junkies.

The good thing about pool is it is such a spectacularly bad idea and so poorly done by these imbeciles that it could potentiality be a business calamity that will be taught in business schools for hundreds of years to come under the header "The Hubris of the Stupid."

And we get a front row seat.

Pax can't request pool FROM LAX....but give it time and watch. The app will start asking if there is luggage currently in trunk so that you can pick up that second pax down at T7

tell me about it...

Did a pool pickup near Howard Hughes (4 or 5 miles away)...dam guy comes out with luggage. Yup going to LAX.

Get a ping like few seconds later, pickup girl going to LAX.

Bags barely fit or had to refuse pool. never again.
And here's the amazing thing. They have a whole team of people working on this. They think about this stuff all day long. Of course they don't collect any driver feedback but you'd think by now they'da figured it out on their owns. Or you'd LIKE to think that!

Unfortunately they're not only allowed they're encouraged. That $42 fare is surge enhanced which you may notice doesn't effect the pool price
This means that the surge pool rate has already been paid by someone inside a pool ride and the discounted fare pool rider is just along for the ride. Or Uber feels that the discounted pool fare has a high probability of being matched regardless of what the surge rate is. Plenty of ways to get creative with pool as a driver if you start thinking outside the box.:biggrin:

They Are Encouraging Pool Due To A Driver Shortage. Pool is Very Dangerous, They truthfully have Absolutely No Respect For Drivers At All.
