Coming in from my budget KLIA Transit ride from KL Sentral, it was time for me to conclude this short but complicated trip to Padang with the final flight of this trip, AirAsia AK721 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore.
Ah crap, my flight was departing from Pier P again. Not that I’m against parking there but the risk of getting out-of-service travellators are significantly higher.
Heading to the self check-in kiosks to print my boarding pass.
My boarding pass being printed, with a corner trapped in the kiosk.
My boarding pass for my flight back to Singapore.
Heading for immigration. Thankfully, there wasn’t too many people today, and the queue took just around 10 minutes.
Heading to Pier P on the satellite terminal across the Skybridge.
The staple of klia2.
Ah, I knew this crap would happen.
Passing through another duty free shop.
Heading down to the pier.
Entering Pier P again, similar to my previous transfer to Padang.
Not too much queue at security too.
Heading down for final security clearance.
Heading to my gate.
At the rate of travellator breakdowns with no repairmen in sight (almost every of my klia2 trips), why not klia2 just remove all of them and provide a wider walking space instead. 🙄
Almost missed my hole-in-the-wall gate at Gate P15.
Boarding passes are checked and torn before entering the gate hold room.
My plane for the flight back to Singapore.
As I wanted to see if getting an empty row was possible, I decided to board last. However, it seemed to be a full flight today.

The legroom on board AirAsia’s Airbus A320-200.
Free WiFi was available on board.
The rather full flight to Singapore.
Pushing back from the gate.
Passing under the Skybridge.
Ready for takeoff.
This time, I ordered the Vegetable Stew in order to complete eating everything on the Santan pre-order menu (though they have released new dishes now and removed some, so I’m now back to square one).
The Vegetable Stew was surprisingly flavorful with pilaf rice and a tomato – based sauce. As someone who doesn’t really like vegetables, I still managed to finish off the whole box. Too bad the pilaf rice only comes in the Vegetable Stew.
Passing by the Tuas Mega Port and Jurong Island.
Passing by Sentosa.
The almost-emptied-out PSA Tanjong Pagar Terminal for the Greater Southern Waterfront project.
The Singapore city skyline at night.
Landed back at Changi Airport.
Parking at Gate G6 at Terminal 4.
Heading to the terminal via the aerobridge.
Heading to arrival immigration.
As always, the empty immigration queues at Terminal 4 are a welcome sight.
Without any check-in baggage, I headed straight out.
Overall, yet another great fuss-free short flight with AirAsia. Did I regret this decision to reroute my flight from Singapore to Padang? With the free stopover in KL (my own choice), this turned out to be a useful flight cancellation instead.
