I arrived at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal quite early for the day, hoping to work from the Starbucks outlet in the terminal. Once I was done with work and lunch I headed in to get myself cheked in. The check in was smooth.

Similarly at the immigration counters, everything went smooth. While I was catching up on some email responses via my BlackBerry, the announcement came in on the flight delay due to late departure from Pekanbaru.

It was delayed by an hour,I suppose when the announcement was made, it was only then that the flight had taken off from Pekanbaru as the entire flight time is only 45 minutes.

Thus to say, I just went over to the cafe inside the terminal, stuffed myself with more caffeine while doing some work. Luckily I was able to work while waiting, else, the waiting time would have been very bored.

Finally, the call to board the flight came in in about 45 minutes time. Wrapped up my things and headed towards the plane. It was a long walk as the aisle was towards the very end of the terminal...aisle 78 if I am not mistaken. The flight was fully occupied.

Once I parked myself in my seat, there seemed to be another delay due to refueling. However, the pilot was quite cool, he kept cracking jokes with the passengers via the P.A. system that kept the heat on a low note. When the flight took off, I was glad that it had finally left.
