Arriving at Airport


I went to Shilparamam artisan village and then went for buffet dinner at Swagath-De-Royal, Kothaguda Cross Road Cyberabad, Hyderabad,

After a heavy dinner. I waited for airport bus. Hyderabad airport is out of city and it took 1 hr to reach.

Arrived at the airport by 11p.m. There was a big crowd waiting to farewell relatives and friends. Showed my ticket and passport, entered the check-in area.


Check-in


Queue was short as I had arrived early. I had paid for the luggage while booking ticket, no issues with weight. Got my boarding pass,

ImmiGration and Security


I went straight  for security checks and immigration. The immigration guy asked if Singapore immigration would allow me to go out as I have next flight after 12hrs. Flipping through the pages, He took a while to stamp the passport.

I answered his question that I would receive visa on arrival, he let me go.

Security check was fine as I had sorted my things before passing the x-ray.


Waiting Area


I was early and walked around and then waited for activity to start near the boarding area.

As I reached the counter, the security person told me get the bags tag stamped, Realising security guy didn't stamp the bag tag.I also had forgotten about this procedure at Indian airport. I had to go back from boarding area to get the stamp. Lucky it wasn't busy and I could return quickly.

My neighbour was a family with kids, who disturbed my sleep. Lucky this was a short 4 hr flight.

After pushback and long taxi, Aircraft was on hold for airport crew to check runway before departing.



Inflight


Soon after take off, crew switched off the light, and there was no further service. I tried to sleep, but the kid in the neighbour seat had spread out with head on father lap and legs towards me, which was disturbing my sleep. As the cabin lights were dark and everyone was quiet, I didn't say anything.


SEAT POCKET MATERIAL


Seat pocket content. contained the safety card, inflight magazine, duty-free catalogue and menu

Immigration and Baggage Collection


After arrival at Terminal 2, walked to the immigration counter. As it was early morning, there was a small queue, Immigration didn't ask anything, stamped my passport and I was away to collect bag.
