A quiet afternoon at KLIA

I checked in at KLIA for a flight to Hong Kong this afternoon. I have not seen the airport look so quiet for a long time. The Cathay Pacific check-in area was deserted:


When I got to the check-in desk I said to the clerk: “Am I late?”

“No,” she replied.

“Am I early,” I asked.

“No,” she replied again.

“So why are there no passengers around,” I asked

“It’s a light flight,” she explained

“Does that mean we get there quicker?” I quipped.

She glanced up at me, but didn’t reply. She was probably thinking: “Stupid man."
