Return flight was booked on AirAsia on its last KUL-SIN flight of the day. Departure was at 2125hrs but we arrived at the airport earlier for dinner. Our chartered transport from KL city center to LCCT took almost an hour despite smooth traffic!

Checked-in at the manual bag-drop counters and out of 6 of us, 3 got the first row hot seats while I had the emex row hot seat. Scored! Guess it pays not to do online check-in on AirAsia haha.

Departure hall of LCCT. Last few looks before it gets torn down next year, hopefully….

Admiring the red beauty. The rear door was also used for boarding, but ground personnel did not check boarding slips and direct those seated at the rear to use the rear door, but instead just wave pax over.

Great legroom at my seat, 12F. The middle seat was left empty as well.

Boarding in progress, which was completed very efficiently. Flight was at least 90% full! Flight time was announced as 1hr but flying time was approx 45min.

With a brand new by-on-board menu as well! It combined the food menu as well as AK merchandises.

Lets take a look at the food offerings. Quite a number of new food choices.

I have pre-ordered a Tandoori chicken wrap for RM9. It was promptly delivered to my seat after seatbelt signs were turned off. The snack came with a cup of water.

A very satisfying cold snack for the short ride. Value for money as well!
