How simple would it be to skirt the $30 limit by ending trip and starting a new one? Can your driver grab you when you call a new trip?

Anyone successful in getting them to apply flat fares to account manually? I've been trying for Miami, but can't HUCA so well when exchanging emails with incompetent foreign reps...

Why does my credit card activity show that this charge for Uber was credited back to me? Any guess what that means?

Anyone tried getting dropped off a block before or two blocks before the airport? 
What should happen should you go to the airport?

Ummm, I don't get it. The only two airports in the range are LGA and JFK. We already determined that you can go to JFK air train and it's fine. What's wrong with that? As for LGA, go to the rental cars and take the shuttle bus.

I've been thinking that a good option, one the might appeal more towards the drivers, might be to offer to change the destination (to some random airport hotel or something) in the app once your at your terminal. The app recalculates the fare but you'll still get the flat rate (up to 30) and this way the driver will feel much better about doing it.

(In my experience they're always more willing to make stops, or agree to interesting requests, when it's all done by updating destination in the app. Maybe because they get paid more? I don't know because I had a ride come out cheaper after adding a stop and changing destination, as the driver had requested.)

Saying good that's an option for both airports.

Does anyone have a good destination to use for LGA that's accessible easily by a shuttle/bus?

(Aside from asking Driver to continue after my ride because let's be honest: drivers would probably want to pick up a fare at LGA rather than a random place in Queens)

You can ask the driver to continue to an airport hotel, car rental return, etc. Doesn't need to be a random address in Queens.

And if he doesn't? I'm looking for a place close by where I can get out and either call another Uber or take a quick bus.

On more than one occasion I have parked my car across the Parkway from LGA, and either walked across or took a shuttle.

I don't get what the whole conversation is about? Or is this a lame attempt to make popcorn on erev shabbos?

You can get dropped off (and picked up!) at the rental car area and take a shuttle to the terminal from there.
