Arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport

May 30, 2014

I arrived in by air from Singapore flying aboard one of JetStar Asia's A320.
Boarding was a bit sluggish and overcomplicated in Singapore already, but my worst airport experience happened at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Well, the flight was smooth and surprisingly long: about an hour, despite the short distance of 320 km.
Considering the short distance, the flight would have been doable in roughly 20 minutes. No way more than half an hour.

The bad thing was that after landing we had to wait a terribly long "man eating" line, which alone consumed 2.5 hours of my time!
That's: just standing in line with my passport in my hand.

A group of Taiwanese tourists purposely pushed me to the side and have even stepped on me without saying a word - they eventually got ahead. So rude, so unfair!

After the long long line waiting I could barely find my bag - which was already put aside with other luggage that weren't picked up by their owners. I had to run here and there and ask personnel, luckily I found it!

Because I saw several bags totally identical to my huge Samsonite rolling bag, it crossed my mind to place some sort of a distinguishing sign on my bag. Here's more about the why's and how's of making your luggage easier to distinguish from others.

The total time wasted disembarking, passing through the passport control, finding my luggage and getting out is over 3 hours and I approximate 3.5 hours total time.
