Waiting, arrival times at airport?

We are travelling to bali next week. Just wondering what the arrival times etc going thru airport have been like lately? We arrive at about 4pm. Haven't been for just under two years and it wasn't as bad as it had been for previous two years we had been thru airport.

Totally agree GREGdMelbourne, there system is different to ours and checkpoint areas. And yes Shazza1469, we have quite a wait at luggage belt also. But must say it all has improved compared to about 3 years ago when they were introducing that new system. There were 5 of us travelling together and it took over 1hr just to process our group as comptuer doing stickers kept having a "hissy fit". We laugh at it now, but it was rather frustating after a long flight from NZ. But as I've said earlier, it does in no way put you off returning again and again!

Hi Strickes, what day of the week do you arrive?

Not all airlines fly 7 days per week on some days a time slot may be busier than others.

For example here are some of the (international) flights that may arrive in the period adjacent to your scheduled flight arrival time:

MH 851 (B777-200) comes in at (14:55) 15:05

CX 785 (B777-300/B747-400) comes in at 15:10

CI 772 (A330-300) comes in at 15:30

BR 255 (A330-200) comes in at 15:40 (actually landed at 16:04)

VA 4196 (B737-800) comes in at 15:48

QZ 8416 (A320-200) comes in at 15:56

MH 850 (B777-200/B737-800) comes in at 15:57

CX 784 (B747-400/B777-300/A330-200) comes in at 16:12

VA 4195 (B737-800) comes in at 16:20

(Scheduled arrival times and aircraft types may vary from day to day, not all flights are 7days/wk)

Strickes, are you on the (Mon,Wed,Fri,Sun) VA 4195 (B737-800) Virgin flight departing 12:20 Adelaide (Australia) or VA 4196 (B737-800) Virgin flight from Brisbane arriving at 15:55?

Or maybe you are coming in from KL on the Malaysia Airlines flight MH 850 at 15:56?

There will be toilets around whilst waiting in these queues? I am departing on 12 May at 11pm for Sydney with Jetstar in current airport? I know you wouldn't know about the new airport as I have read it is supposed to open in May. Many thanks ...Vicki

VA 4145 from Sydney landed at 15:22 today.

The the flight time varies between 6:25 and 6:55 on that route with the B737-800s operated by Virgin Australia.

That schedule is meant to be current from 07-04-2013 through 05-10 2013.

VA 4145 operates Mon,Tue,Thu,Sat,Sun

It is likely the passengers on that flight today were likely only delayed waiting for their bags to appear.

Yes, there are toilets, and (free) trolleys for your baggage.

If you want to use a porter the charge per bag is Rp5,000.

Neglecting to confirm that with them first will likely result in an entirely silly payment being demanded later.

Hi, we went to Bali last Year and it was so busy when we landed the queues were massive. But we had organised a VIP arrival pass, cost us $25 and had someone waiting with our name on a board and fast forwarded us through all the queues and through customs, it was the best $25 I spent! The last thing I wanted to do from being on a flight was to stand in a hot airport for hours!
