    It’s surging all around Sydney airport. There are no cars in the queues but still no surge at the airport. We drivers should get paid a low surge to remain competitive with the taxis. Uber riders are able to avoid the taxi queue just by walking to the Uber pickup zone.

    35-40 cars could take only 10 mins to clear, depends how many pax are waiting..

    I was there at 8pm when there was 11-20 cars and got a ping as soon as I entered the cage...went straight to 1-10 and instant ping...

    Totally! It’s been a policy of Uber’s since day 1. Only gets harder to make a dollar for those with only UBER as their pipeline

    I'm just going to start a separate new thread that says:

    Anyone know why it doesn't surge in <enter location here> anymore?

    Everyone can then reply to the thread and put in a location and discussion can follow from there.

    Of course we expect mulder to reply to each location to say that it is still surging for him at that location and in fact he was just at that location the other day right after getting a ping at the international airport where he picked up an astronaut for a trip to the moon at x 1.9 surge pricing.

    Ok, UberTopGunUberTopGun this is not funny anymore.
    I don’t appreciate you changing my quotes and misrepresenting me.

    I’ve been here 2 years and built up a following and reputation, I don’t need you to misrepresent me on this forum.
    If this continues, I will escalate this further to the moderators.
    As a last resort , leave and cease posting

    Here's my tip for serious drivers-

    Avoid the airport unless you're getting airport pings from Alexandria or Zetland

    Hope that helps

    Did you get a trip back or did you watch all of your 45+ trip profits evaporate before your eyes as you drove back empty handed.
