There's nothing modern about Changi's use of "angel wings" to physically detain passengers moving through customs while they collect biometrics.

Haven’t been to singapore for a while but I was never stopped at customs (green channel)

If you are on about collecting fingerprints at immigration, the US does that, as do many other countries.

Can you explain what “angel wings” means in this context?
