Kim dropped me off at the airport 2h prior to my AirAsia X departure to Kuala Lumpur via Gold Coast. The queue was long but as I was flying Premium Flatbed, I only had one person ahead of me. Quite unusually, I had 36kg of luggage comprising of a dozen wine, some cheese, cooling bricks and a few other goodies for family. Gotta make the most of the 40kg luggage allowance!
I sat and did admin on my computer for most of the flight to Gold Coast where the stopover formalities were rather painless. It involved just a security screen before heading to the departure gate for a brief wait before reboarding for Kuala Lumpur.
