Introduction

This report is of a flight in Sept 2012. This trip was planned holiday with friends. We decided to cover Thailand and Singapore as some of my friends hadn't.

As ticket and seats were booked by friends, I didn't know the details before the flight.

Check-in

Check-in for this flight was done online, On the day flight, we arrived early by taxi. As this being a holiday we were travelling light.

Baggage was underweight. Our passport was checked and boarding pass printed till Singapore.

Spotting

Sydney airport used to have a open viewing deck above the terminal in 2012.

Immigration and Security

On watching the plane dock at the gate, we decided to head for immigration.

Immigration and security was quick being mid-day, not many international flights were scheduled.

Boarding

We didn't get much time in the terminal as boarding had commenced by the time we had completed security. We rushed to gate area.

Seating

Seating for the economy was 3-4-3. Seats with more spacing are yellow coloured, Blue seats had narrow space.

I wasn't happy with the seats as it felt tight.
