Introduction

This report is from 2014. I was travelling to Mumbai via Singapore.

Driving to Airport

Was getting dropped at the airport.

Check-In, Immigration and Security

Check-In queue for this flight was long, as I didn't check-in online. Had to wait in queue for the boarding pass and Australian immigration card.

My baggage was below the allocated limit of 30 Kg. Counter staff checked my passport and Visa and then printed the boarding pass. Was informed of the gate number and handed my documents.

Next, immigration, which was quick as this being an off-peak time, very few people in the queue. Security was quick, I took out laptop, belt and anything else that beeps and put it through the machine.

After completing the security, passed the duty-free area, I wasn't making any purchase. Went to have meal. Below air-side view from food court

For me, I choose the rear section as its a little away from the engine. Always felt jetlagged after travelling on 777's. 787's being new planes have addressed the problem. Thanks for your comment.
