Introduction

I was travelling to Mumbai in Feb 2015 for a short visit. This trip report covers the flight from Sydney to Singapore on Boeing 777-200ER.

I had booked SYD-SIN-BOM on SQ and BOM-KUL-SYD on MH as the return on SQ was more expensive. I finished work early to catch the flight which was departing at 19.05.

Check-in online and printed the boarding pass. As I was travelling light took train to airport.

Check-In

I had to drop bag and queued for the bag-drop counter. Queue was short being mid-week and evening flight. At the check-in counter, passport and visa was checked and asked why I was travelling one-way. I told the counter of my itinerary and everything was fine. Got the boarding pass and gate details. Flight departing from gate 58.

Immigration and Security

Immigration wasn't busy at the time of the day and security was quick. Should have been 15-20 mins to complete the formalities.

Delayed flight

I allow enough time before the flight so as not to rush. After passing security, checked the flight schedule. Flight was delayed by 1hr .
