I travelled from SG back to MY first. As it was a weekday, there were not many people on the flight. I am taking Jetstar because it touches down at KLIA (no need to transfer from LCCT) and the recent bad news on Tiger Airways always cancelling flight...
After that, I took a midnight flight from KLIA to Düsseldorf, Germany via KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines).
I watched couple of in flight movie along the way, i.e. Prince of Persia and The Karate Kid. I slept the other time as normally flight to
There was a transfer flight before reaching
Düsseldorf International Airport, Germany at Amsterdam, (I travelled by KLM, Royal Dutch Airline). I’ve checked in my luggage all the way, so just need to get my boarding pass to get going. There was no more check-in counter, only Self-Service Transfer machine, where you can confirm and print your boarding pass (I have to start using the ones in KLIA or LCCT to keep myself on the technology edge…) Holland

There were three and half hours of flight transfer time, so I walked around.
(it was called Amsterdam Schiphol) is a very huge airport. I believed it is just like Changi Airport of SG, where most of the people shall transfer from here if they are travelling within Amsterdam Airport Europe. In the airport itself, can you believe me that there are actually library, museum and casino?

|Airport Casino...keep playing until forget your flight...|
One thing to note, not to walk too long within the airport although you have a long transfer waiting period, queuing through immigration and security scan can takes more than half an hour.

to Düsseldorf is like from SG to MY, about an hour flight. I reached Düsseldorf around 9:30am (local time GMT+02:00). It took me about a day in travelling time (22 hours and 40 minutes to be exact, I flew from SG 04:50pm, GMT+08:00). I still need to catch the 10:40 train and travel another two and half hours to reach Amsterdam …… with my luggage… Paderborn
By the way, in EU nations, we are only need to validate our passport entry once. There is not requiring to stamp on your passport within the EU nations.
