    No matter how many terminals, all flights want to take off or land during certain hours, it is never enough. If the current terminals are always packed, then 4, 5 or 6 is reasonable. Hope I didn't sleep hehe

    Think of it this way. If the housing for low pay foreign workers become acute we can also set up tents on one of the runways to house them:

    Could this be the US Secret Service agent on duty to protect Obama.

    One of the agents was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said.

    To be fair, Changi Airport deserved to be up there among the best.
    What I like about Changi is there is plenty of seats around unlike some other airports I have been.

    I have no interests in staying in airports for longer than I should. For that, Changi is great. I can clear immigration within 10 mins!

    Cannot. Tents are reserved for hospitals usage.

    You must have used the Singapore citizens VIP lane.

    Even Obama visited Singapore he only cleared immigration after 15 minutes.

    Why get furious or angry? Don't blow things out of proportion. If I am not wrong, the tents were meant for temporary quarantine for fever patients during the SARS outbreak and kept in case of another epidemic. Now they are being used temporarily for patients until beds in the main wards are available. The patients are not being tortured when they are in the temporary structure.

    Changi hospital is building extensions which are not completed yet. I go to the hospital quite often for checkups and also to visit relatives and friends warded. It's crowded but still beat government hospitals I have visited in Taiwan any time. I am very sure government hospitals elsewhere in Asia are not any better. Be thankful for what you have instead of complaining and venting.
