What is the point? Are airlines paying for this (non-existent) privilege? I have never had a fast-track/express/premium pass honoured on arrival into SYD, so why do Qantas et al even bother handing them out?

I can see it being potentially useful at immigration for passengers without access to e-Gates, but apart from that, completely agree that it's useless. SYD T1 is pretty much just the red/green lanes now. The signage for Express Path is pretty much decoration at this stage.

In Brisbane, they have a separate express pass line which joins the front of the green declare lane so I guess it can be useful depending on the airport.

It is certainly worthwhile in MEL: usually gets you in a MUCH shorter line for customs checking.

Useless if you can use e-gate, a godsend if you can't. When I travel with my daughter I am always glad I have it.

Found it good for mums with kids or elderly - waiting in those long lines can be tough.
