Having had some diabolical arrival experiences at SYD in the morning peak-hour I was somewhat dreading the experience as we descended from out most recent flight. As it turned out there was no need to be concerned at all because from touchdown to taxi-rank took precisely 35 minutes! Could this possibly be the same Sydney International Airport that we know and love? Seems that the real peak hour is somewhat later than 0630 more likely around 0800 when the queues are much longer and the staff surlier. Quarantine matters were greatly assisted by officials screening passengers at the baggage carousel and stamping their arrival cards for a quick exit if they were considered a low quarantine/customs risk. All-in-all a pleasant experience.
