This report is from a trip to Singapore in 2008. I had booked the flight online. It was still early days of smartphones, check-in was done through website and printing on paper. This was my first trip on Airbus A380,
Arrived at the airport by taxi early for this flight. Check-in was done online, baggage was dropped at the internet check-in desk. Got the immigration form and boarding pass from the ground agent.
Immigration was first, which didn't take long, Officer stamped the passport and next was security. Security queue was short being afternoon off-peak . Entered the duty free area soon.
Being early for the flight, walked around and plane-spotted.
