We left Bali Saturday and I thought I would do a quick airport report.
Arriving to Bali we were through very quickly, there was a reasonable queue however the officials ushered us and about 5 other families with kids through. Our bags then felt like they were the last to come off though! So a very reasonable start.
Departure, I had been asking on the forum about taking opened bottles of duty free back. Well we wrapped them up so they wouldn't smash, placed them in the middle of checked luggage and had absolutely no drama. Bags straight through x-Ray machine, took them to check in all absolutely fine- yay!!
Paying departure tax was fine, going through separate male/female lines was ok as hubby and I each had a (male) kid. No big queues at all.
From reading about lack of food places on here I had made sure we ate before the airport and we had pre ordered meals with airasia. There are a few little food places so I did get a coffee.
All in all I was really pleasantly surprised by how smoothly everything went with both arrival and departures. Maybe I had been expecting the worse from doing too much research on here!!!
Arriving at Perth airport was also a breeze, no other flights and got waved through (I have spent an hour and a half there before!).
So great start and finish to our holiday :)
