Did CH JFK last week 530AM no issues

CH->JFK or JFK->CH? (I am inquiring about the latter).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Is revel working these days JFK ➡️ CH around 10 PM?

How about at 5:30am?

I'm in JFK now and getting a "No cars available" message. Basically make sure to have a backup plan.

Worked for me yesterday before 6am.
Was showing no cars available for a few min and then was able to select one.
Originally said 18 minutes but showed in about 10 minutes.

I kept trying for 10-15 minutes (while I waited for my ride).

Landed in LGA at 1:10pm today and tried requesting a ride beginning about 1:25pm.

For 10 minutes I got the message "no cars available", then at 1:34pm a car appeared and was 10 minutes away. 15 minutes later at 1:48pm the driver had moved further away and was now 14 minutes away. I sent the driver a text and a minute later the driver turned around and headed towards LGA, finally picking up at 2:04pm.

Revel will direct you to Aisle E for the pickup at Terminal B in LGA, the driver went straight for aisle H instead.

The driver never wrote back why he was heading away from LGA.. but my feeling is in-line with what I heard from a previous driver a few weeks ago. Because drivers are not paid per ride, they are not motivated to do as many rides and Revel does not have a great system at enforcing. So many drivers play the system and do the minimum expected, and idle around after.

FWIW the ride was quoted to be a bit over $60 when requested, but only $53.92 credit was deducted.

At time of confirming ride.



Driver moves further away.



Driver turns back around after my text.

Any chance this can get extended after December 31 ?

I doubt whether anyone here has inside info. FWIW, I previously had a Revel credit related to the introduction of the Revel Teslas that was supposed to expire, but was available after the supposed expiration date. I think this time might be different due to scale (number of people that got the credits) and size (amount of credits).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does it make sense to leave a large tip for the driver on your last ride or is that nice to the company?
Tips do NOT come off the credit!

Upon ordering a ride they're asking you to confirm your location, has anyone had luck entering a different location at that point?
