This morning Storm Troopers ‘invaded’ Changi Airport to the delight of Star Wars fans. Now this is yet another reason why we love Changi Airport which is also a favourite amongst many travellers. Star Wars fans of all ages and nationalities were at the Departure Hall of Changi Airport Terminal 3 where there was a show of X-Wing fighter pilots at the T3 X-Wing Fighter as well as a Storm Trooper display.

The Storm Troopers then marched systematically to Terminal 2 via the under pass at basement two which connects Terminal 3 to Terminal 2.

Elements of Star Wars featured in the Star Wars themed plane include a R2-D2 themed disposable head rest covers, paper cups and in cabin lighting. We wished they had incorporated more elements of Star Wars into the cabin experience.

We were also rather impressed with ANA’s premium economy cabin, with seat backs that actually recline compared to Economy class seats as well as leg rests and a wider seat.
