in the pool perhaps instead of the slow, normal and fast lanes, they could have economy, business and first lanes

where is the pool in changi? love that airport!

Its in the Transit Hotel in Terminal 1. You can use if it you are a guest, or pay a fee (about AUD30 I think) to use it, which also gets you access to the (very small) lounge.

AUD$17 to get into the pool. Very cheap if you have a few hours to kill
Big fan of this and have used it often.

There is something to be said about going for a swim to make you feel semi-human again before the next flight!

Abu Dhabi airport owns the adjunct golf course. Golf carts can , I believe, be used from within the terminal

Pools I see as a stretch, but I have often thought other recreational options would make sense. Pool tables and table tennis tables spring to mind.

That’s a bit like the Turkish Airlines Lounge in Istanbul which has the golf driving range simulator, table tennis etc. great for wasting time.

That's a great lounge - but having spent a lot of time there, it's so crowded that I've never been able to get near any of the cooler facilities. It's not usual to have an hour's wait even for a shower. It really hasn't kept up with TK's growth. Well neither has Ataturk Airport in general, to be fair.

How many people have swimming trunks in their hand luggage? Not many that I know of.

I always pack them if I'm transiting through Changi and will have a few hours to kill.

More to the point, how do you dry them / pack them if wet?

You ask the pool/bar attendant for a plastic bag.

Even cheaper if you're flying on SQ. Your Changi Dollars voucher will cover the SGD17 cost. Agreed - I love it and use it on most stopovers

If anyone remembers the Ansett Golden Wings Lounge at Perth, what a great place, with the beer garden in the middle of the terminal, how good (or bad) would that place be with a swimming pool in the middle of the Perth summer before jumping on the red-eye back to SYD. Hmmmmm...!!!
