MISC | Immigration on board

I first heard of this with Garuda, Indonesia's flag carrier. This is common with flights coming from Seoul where you have an immigration officer on board checking your passport / visa instead of waiting for long queues at the immigration counter.

What do you think of this and will other carriers follow?

I don't think that many carriers will follow, there are simply too many problems.

Where is this flight handled on the Jakarta airport. If it's at the international terminal people will still have to pass the customs at the airport. Is it workable to keep all the passengers together and make them all pass the customs collectively. If they will use a domestic terminal where there's no need for customs it means that people that are connecting to another international flight will again have to pass custom. And if there's a problem with one of the passengers on board they will have to keep him/her already apart in the airplane. Or take him out first, but that will mean that all the other people have to wait before they can exit. There's also a big possibility that when a passenger without proper documents is caught on the plane that the passenger will cause a scene that could disrupt the flight.

What's also a problem is that a customs officers needs a seat that could otherwise be used by a paying passenger. Especially since he also have to fly to Korea and he can't work on that flight.

It could work on some "safe" routes, like a Korea - Indonesia or a Japan - Indonesia flight, but I can't really see it happening on a larger scale.
