The French world-renowned caviar house Petrossian opened a caviar and champagne bar at Los Angeles’ Tom Bradley International Terminal last week. Menu items at the post bar include a caviar martini garnished with a caviar-stuffed olive, caviar deviled eggs, hand-sliced smoked salmon, a smoked trout platter and caviar flatbread, according to The Los Angeles Times.
The bar also features over 20 vodkas, a wide selection of high-end champagnes and various caviar choices based on availability, include Royal Transmontanus, Alverta President Transmontanus, Tsar Imperial Siberian, Tsar Imperial Shassetra and Tsar Imperial Ossetra.
We were with Mayor Bloomberg when he pushed for e-hailing — allowing New Yorkers to use a smartphone app to book their cab rides. That in turn led to a pilot program with new taxi companies such as Uber.
But as so often happens, the same company whose new service earns accolades eventually becomes successful enough to find itself denounced as an enemy of the people. That seems to be what’s happening to Uber over its “surge” pricing.
The concept of surge pricing is nothing new. It means that prices go up when demand is high — during, for example, the recent snowstorm, when prices tripled in New York — and drops when demand is low. The benefit for Uber is obvious: It makes more money when prices are high.
But there’s a benefit for consumers, too. It means that there will be a cab when you want one, if you are willing to pay. After all, what good is the right to a taxi ride that will cost you $15 if you have to wait six hours to get a cab, or never get a cab at all? Under normal conditions, you may not value a car at surge pricing. But if the weather is awful and it’s the only way you can make your flight to Paris, it may then look worth every penny.
We don’t pretend to know what the right prices are for taxis. But neither do Uber’s critics. So long as the company is up front — and their booking even requires people to type in the price multiplier, to confirm they are aware of it — we say this is something best hashed out between consenting adults. That is, passengers and riders.
We’re not saying all taxi services should follow suit. We’re just saying New Yorkers could do with more choice — and competition. Happy Uber Year.
