I have traveled and walked around Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) for few times but in my 25 years of life I have never boarded a plane before..
Last Friday, 9th Ocotber 2009 was my first time to board a plane and of course, travel in it..
It’s almost year-end with the Cuti-Cuti Malaysia fever is in the air, Dale and I decided take a short break before the start of my internship..
So we checked out the availability of the safer flight and at a reasonable price, MAS Get-The-Deal packages..
After much search and discussions, we devided to make a wasted weekend trip to Langkawi, at just RM69, not inclusive of tax..Quite reasonable I would say..
My first and last trip to Langkawi was in 2006, traveled on land and sea (bus and ferry)..It was quite fun..I could’ve guessed this trip would also be a simple yet fun one..
*Dale and I checking in at KL Sentral*
We booked for the 2.15pm flight so we checked in at KL Sentral at 11.45am..Now only I know that if we were to check-in at KL Sentral we have to do it 2 hours before the flight..
If we were to check-in at KLIA we can do so 1 hour before the flight..Hope I’m right about this..Do correct me if I’m wrong..
Since it’s a Friday and no one could give us a ride to KLIA, we took the KLIA Express happily..RM35 per pax and we reached KLIA in just 30 minutes..That’s pretty express..
If we have like 5 people I think it’s better to drive..Otherwise, KLIA Transit or KLIA Express is the way to go..
I did a bit of panning while sitting in the train as well..
*We arrive at KLIA*
That’s our flight MH 1446 Pulau Langkawi..Before you board the plane, if you are bringing any hand-carry bags do remember to put in any bottle of liquid, cream, or solid-liquid items into the re-sealable transparent plastic bag..
I bet you don’t want to be mistaken for a 9/11 terrorist right?
*Check-in point aka Departure Gate*
At the departure gate we have to empty our pockets and put down our bags into the scanner..
Then we proceeded to Gate B3 to wait for our flight..More photos on B3 and Boeing 737 as soon as we landed Langkawi Airport..
