Great work once again @djsflynn. ^

Now that the iPhone 8 and X have wireless charging, maybe it'd be a good time to incorporate wireless charging in the lounges?

Maybe it's something you can bring up with the airlines, not just CX?

If I recall, HEL already has wireless charging pads scattered around not just the Finnair lounges but the public terminal those will likely be the older slow-charing ones but definitely think a case could be made for wireless charging at lounges and even on aircraft. At least one concept seat (Waterfront) has this built in and it makes a lot of sense.

I live in Singapore and I am trying to have a shower every time I return to my home. Singapore is a hot and humid country, and the showers help me refresh a lot.

Quick question - anyone know how early we can check-in at Singapore T4? How many hours before the flight?

Could I check in the night before for an 8am flight? Or the morning for a 6pm flight?

Going by the jerky video on the phone in my pocket, I took 4:50mins from stepping off the plane, to hitting the immigration counters. Figured that I might as well get to be the first at immigration as well and get a pic with the ICA officers, so walked at a reasonable trot except for ~20secs when a reporter walked alongside asking a couple of questions.

Not too bad, but longer than T1. Surprisingly for SIN, there was a bit of a dearth of travelators, I thought.

Spent 4-5mins at the immigration counters. I didn't have a bag checked in, but bags had not started coming out by the time I reached the belts. Reckon that in T1, bags would start coming out just around when I'd reach the belts around 30% of the time.

Super long walk and I counted all but TWO travellators. I had time to get to the money changer to change out my HKD to SGD and luggage barely arrived. mine the second bag and I think I was out of Customs 5:45ish. so T1 still topped it for me

Long walk....reminds me of the Budget Terminal. This one's should be better, air-conditioned at least.

It's long because the widebody gates are dotted at the ends of the terminal. It's a straight line unlike the old BT where it winds up and you come down again.

Some article in the local newspapers today.

I wonder if anybody ended up at the wrong terminal (T1?)?

As an ex-frequent traveller on the route, count me as a non-shower user. Transport in Singapore is efficient and times are not that variable, so if I spend >20 minutes in the lounge it's because something has gone wrong (or very right) with time management on the trip.
