We’re en route to Surabaya, Indonesia from Kota Kinabalu. The first leg of our journey was from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur. We arrived at Kota Kinabalu International Airport quite early, 8 pm to be precise whereas our flight scheduled to leave at 10.50 pm. That’s more than 2 hours of waiting. Initially, we were clueless on what to do at this medium size airport. We were not business class passengers or high tier members of any airlines, so we have to forget about that other lounge, since entry is by invitation only. Luckily there is an Airport Pay-In Lounge located in the domestic departures area named as Plaza Premium Lounge. At least there is a place where we both have a place to chill out while waiting for our flight.
