A 30min Grabcar ride to the airport at half the price of the airport taxi and reached the terminal slightly more than an hour before departure. The 4 Jetstar check-in counters were quite empty even though the flight ended up totally full.

Boarding pass. Requested for a window seat and was moved to the last row of the plane (initially was at row 25 during online check-in with no options to change) and with no recline.

FIDS. The 1645hrs Tigerair departure to Singapore was delayed due to late arrival of aircraft at 1655hrs.

SG50-liveried aircraft would be operating the flight. The plane had arrived rather early.

Seated at the last row, the legroom was miserable and recline was nil. All for the sake of a window seat…

Boarding in progress and crew were actively assisting with the boarding process. Being a totally full flight, it was a wonder that boarding was completed 15min before STD.

Turning over Batam and heading north before approaching from the north to the airport. Quite a detoured approach.
