Try arriving on an early AM flight around 06:00 I'm usually coming from Shanghai (not sure about the others)....the bio-security queues stretch back to baggage claim area often in ALL lanes.

No complaints with thorough checks but why not offer frequent business travelers i.e. APEC card holders, a break.....
