I Detect A Pattern


Singapore Changi Airport

Flights on Singapore Airlines leave from either Terminal 2 or Terminal 3 of Singapore Changi Airport.

Here's the way the departing flights are organized:

Terminal 2
Africa: Egypt, South Africa
Europe: Russia, Turkey
Middle East: Saudi Arabia, U.A.E.
South Asia: Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Pakistan, Sri Lanka
Southeast Asia: Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam

Terminal 3
Americas: USA, Canada
Europe: Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, U.K.
North Asia: China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan
Southwest Pacific: Australia, New Zealand

I'm sure it's a coincidence that flights to developed nations are from sparkly new Terminal 3 (pictured), while flights to the less developed nations that provide Singapore's manual labor are from older Terminal 2.

By another coincidence, every time I've flown from the US to India via Europe, the aircraft on the US-Europe flight is inevitably newer and shinier than the one on the Europe-India flight. This has been true for United, Northwest/KLM, Lufthansa, British Airways, Kuwait Airways. I've never flown Air India, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does the samething. Racial and class prejudice do get internalized, after all.
