Arrived in Terminal 1 midday aboard a flight from Manila on a low fare carrier. Immediately after disembarkation there was a security check similar to what is normally the case for departing passengers - officers professional and friendly. Immigration and customs officers efficient and friendly. Five minutes wait for a taxi and on our way downtown. Signs were posted in the waiting area indicating that during rush hour adjacent to weekends and public holidays waiting for a taxi can take much longer time. Return to Manila was early on a Sunday morning. Waiting in the check-in line took around ten minutes. GST refund went smoothly with no wait. Around five minutes were spent in the immigration line; security check was at the gate and entailed no wait. Prior to entering the waiting area at the gate a sign advised that free Internet was available. However although there was free wifi service available it was not connected to the Internet and thus of no use. Terminal 1 is under refurbishment and will remain so until 2012. But even with work on-going I still found it nice much better that many other terminals in the region.
