Different rules for different people - everyone in front of us had a pod to themselves (groups of 2 & 3 people) our turn came and it hadn't got any busier but we had to share with another group and the pod after us went around empty because the staff person was too busy talking to her colleagues. Understand the rules but make them the same for everyone. Ruined my experience as it was not a cheap 30 minutes!
