unlike Singapore they don't have a single tap in tap out setup when using multiple lines. Some misleading info when getting to the airport too.
That's because, unlike to Singapore they have two metro systems, operated by two different companies, plus bunch of private ones. That in this condition you have just one card instead of one for each system is an accomplishment.

The map states "Domestic airlines" and "Int'l airlines" though it should state Domestic/Int'l destinations.
Now you are complaining about their ability to handle English? This whole matter is subject of running gag everywhere...

Worst problem are ATMs though. Nothing worked so had to leg it to the nearest Citi branch which was a few kms away.
Well, see the problem most (unsophisticated) international travelers are encountering that they (wrongly) assume (even subconsciously) that things in other places work similarly.

Wrong!

A 5 min time spent on wikitravel would explain this and other different stuff as well.

Haven't been to HK in decades so cannot comment.
Do next time.

Wrong. Singapore MRT has two different operators as well. Do give wikipedia a look.

Just surprised that a misleading sign can stay up like this, especially as it pertains to the airport, so it's not some local sign in some obscure cafe pointing your way to the mens' room.

I just assume things work. Period.

Getting back to Flashpay/EZ, you're about as likely to find a rubbish bin on a Tokyo street as you are a card that has both Flashpay and EZ-link wallets.

Read carefully - 'two different metro systems'. In SIN, the MRT network is one, in TYO - there are bunch of them if you count JR East, Tokyo Metro, Toei, plus bunch of private railways - Keisei, Rinkai, Yurikamome, Keikyu and so on. Not only operators are different, network is different as well.

This

is at NRT as well. Enjoy

Post 1965 Japanese governments spent 14B (Billion) dollars trying to teach local population speaking English, you see the result.

Surpriiiiiiiiise!

Fair enough. And the same is applicable to attempt finding a bench at Singapore's parks as well.

Hi there. The 6% cash rebate is only applicable for the auto top up feature if you have a minimum of S$500 posted to your card for the month. The 6% cash rebate is not applicable if you manually top up the NETS flashpay feature. Yes, you will be able to utilise the card to make payment at retail merchants which accept NETS flashpay as a mode of payment if there is funds top up in the NETS flashpay. Thank you!

OK, went to AXS station to top up Ezlink for $5 (until they fix Top and Tap). During the process there was an option to top up with DBS credit card, however it asked for a pin.

Did anyone done this? I suspect that in this case it would be considered as cash advance and I'd rather stay safe topping up from the current account.

Affirmative. But you have no idea when it will work and when - won't.

Heck, systems in my lab have higher uptime than this one...

Nope, a few months ago, they added flashpay option.
When you walk across the bridge to Sentosa you still cannot pay using Flashpay. Only EZ-link is accepted at the entrance gates.
