Big Joke orders airport upgrade: Premium Lane will henceforth be known as "Fast Track"

The Lt Gen wants visitors to be impressed with the airport and procedures. 

As I stand waiting my turn in the regular lane I do not have thoughts of niceness towards those who have a bigger wallet and zipping thru the 'Fast Lane'. How about speeding all the lanes up.

So how much for the "Fast Track" ? I am reluctant to exposing myself to the possibility of waiting in the Immigration line for 5 hours, I think I would lose the plot 😞

But will they refuse to process people who don't qualify for Fast Track?

Yes, I often see people, especially from India, being rejected and sent to the loooooooooooong queue for the mortals. I guess they get lost on their way from the VoA service right next door.

 

The Prem.. Fast Lane is nice, but they need some glue or something for the female IOs to make them smile.

 

'Can't wait' to get to see the changes when I arrive next Friday :D

Its called jealousy... 

 

But, I agree... On occasions I have seen Immigration horribly overrun...  I think its unfair to expect anyone to wait longer than 15mins in an immigration queue. That said, pretty much every country has shocking Immigration queues unless you are 'fast tracking'.... 

 

I heard that at a couple of airports In the UK they have an 'instant upgrade - fast track lane' where where if the queues a the departing Airport security are too large you can pay £5 to queue jump and 'fast track'... which to be honest is quite sickening.... instead of trying to improve the procedure the airports are attempting to profit from their inefficiency.

I love Asia for the fact that people with money get better treatment, unlike in Europe where everyone is equal and has the equal right for an iPhone, sponsored by someone else's money 😄

Great news as I turn 70 this year and looking forward to rubbing shoulders with the 'elite' in this newly named enviroment!

 

Seriously:

Last Oct. I arrived in the evening to find the whole left side arrivals hall barracaded and closed. Walked the 100 meters to the right side to find it in turmoil!

 

Now that's a 'Big Joke'

I've been in the line for many hours at Swampy, a chinese lady in front of us even let it all flow, she didn't want to go to the toilet and loose her spot...

The real problem is trying to figure out which lane you can use on any given day. Last time they put me in the Chinese line that had 0 people in it, sometimes Thai lane, on a couple of occasions I went the diplomatic route. Niihao maibpenrai hi-so oohyeah.

Who qualify s for the Fast Track Lane and how do they know that they qualify ?

Let's hope so.  Why would they process people who don't qualify, those who just try to play the system to their own selfish advantage?

Why would you think that you'd be queueing for 5 hours?

Many hours?  When?  That must have been reported if it were true, surely?
