OT: KUL's new-ish T2 is also segregated, though it's basically an LCC terminal.

You're confusing Schengen and non-Schengen sections with Singapore's mixed arrivals/departures model. Where security/immigration is required it is still centralised unlike SIN.

AMS used to be mixed arrival/departures until a few years ago where they moved to centralised security

Er, no, the word in English for the absence of a kerb is indeed kerbless.

The word "curbless" in English means the absence of a restraint or control over something.

Not quite a direct comparison, but the domestic areas of most (all?) US and Australian airports are also mixed - it certainly is the case at JFK T8, BOS, ORD, MSP, DFW, LAX, SYD and MEL.

I already thanked jacobsleather upthread for posting the explanation for "kerb" as in, British/Australian English.

Canadian English is part-British, part-American with a nice sprinkling of French and Quebecois, at a minimum.

Since I looked at the word "kerbless" in the video as a possible spelling error, I appreciated the other poster clarifying it.

That said....
When I search for curb and curbside, some of the results that appear are below.

In the end, SIN T4 will be kerbless, CX gets a new terminal and everyone will be happy.

LOL, yup.

I recall posting my "lounge reviews" from having visited both the SIN QF and BA about 2 months ago, that I much preferred the BA for a variety of reasons. Sure, there were some nice things about the QF, but for some reason, other parts didn't appeal to me. A few CX FTers disagreed and much prefer QF. Also, some BA FTers prefer the QF. (BTW, for sheer amusement, one can spend a few minutes at the raging rants on the AC forum, and how bad their North American lounges are compared to XYZ, or more importantly, how their key hubs have the worst lounges compared to the offerings of CX in HKG etc etc (where is that Louis C.K. video "Louis CK Everything Is Amazing And Nobody Is Happy"....)

so if you flew in from uk ud be released at departures lounge; and nigeria the new arrivals floor.

More information on Changi T4 (not CX speciifc).

Talks about automated boarding gates.

That could be a nightmare if there are like only 2 machiens say per boarding gate and people don't know how to use the gates... and wonder how priority boarding will work

First pax carrying flight will operate on AUG 28 out of T4 as CX 2714, taking the frame from originally CX 710

At the moment all other flights remain T1 but that can't last long...well I have two turnarounds in early September..fingers crossed (not back to back tho )

I'm sad this means no more visits to the QF lounge in T1.

I concur. Even though I'm sure the new CX lounge will be great, QF still has the best buffet by far in their lounges.

Has anyone figured out if there is an airside connection?

I saw that there is a connecting bus T2 - T4 (IIRC when I was in Changi on the weekend) but not sure where it drops off on T4
