We had an early head start from the hotel, by 4.15 am we were already at the airport. That was about the time they just opened the airport doors. Hehehe, this is the first time in my life where I saw the airport doors being opened right in front of my eyes. 

The check in was pretty fast as we were one of the earliest to arrive and within 45 minutes we were already inside the waiting lounge. Since it was the first flight of the day, the flight departed on time.

Hi Jay, yeah I guess so. Hehehe

Many times when I had to leave such early I found the airport open all right but the duty free shops so angry that I did not buy gifts from the city and decided to buy everything from the duty free shops. I reached the destination and bought my gifts from the other country...

Hi Greekcypriot, thats true. I had learned my lesson though. Nowadays, I always ensure that I buy the souvenirs before hand in the city before heading to the airport. Anyway, the price in the airport is always at least 50% more than outside.

Hi Balan, yes, thats true. Indeed we touched down and cleared immigration much sooner than I had expected though.
