Former Nominated Member of Parliament, Siew Kum Hong, wrote about 3 things he is annoyed with about Changi Airport.
1. CAB QUEUE
“First, is the cab queue, with its system of a human being directing human traffic and, if your cab queue is located in the middle of the terminal, acting as a radio despatcher to fall for cabs to come over (presumably to another human being on the other end of the radio).

“But the third, is where Changi most resembles a third-world country airport. This is the line to get your passport and boarding pass checked by a human, after you clear the biometric machine, which is after your passport and boarding pass are checked — and stamped — by another human.”
Mr Siew did not fail to express his love for Changi Airport. “There are few, if any, airports where you can land, be in a cab in 10 min (assuming no check-in luggage), and home after 15 more min”, he said.
But he was bothered by the inefficiencies to comment that he will just “use the human counters if they are relatively clear”.
