We took a 10 hour flight from Cape Town to Doha, had an eight hour layover,…. He travels about , miles a year, primarily using miles and points to enhance his first class experiences. He chronicles his adventures, along with industry news, here at One Mile at a Time. I make a point to keep my shoes on my feet until we are in the air in case we have to abort the plane during takeoff. I also keep my phone and wallet with passport in my pocket so in an evacuation I have everything that I need on my person and can bolt for the door without needing to grab anything.
Making a reservation through Garuda | Indonesia - Lonely Planet Forum - Thorn Tree
Not many reviews but I know they are highly praised. Perhaps SQ compare to Garuda? Would love to maybe hit Jakarta on a future trip. Frank — This was thanks to a Black Friday sale they had. They are transfer partners with Citi, and I believe a one-way ticket between Europe and Jakarta costs just under , miles.
The latest change
However only recently could you book Garuda awards online with their own program so maybe KE can as well, via a call. Not sure if GA releases F seats to partners. It just seemed that most people prefer taking their shoes off before takeoff, for better or worse. RCB, HA!
I thought I was the only out there with this quirk. I have been a member of their FF program for a long time, and I have booked reward seats many times. The process is via a telephone call, as I live in Sydney I ring the Sydney Garuda Office — they are as efficient as you could ask for. All FF transactions and credit card transactions need to be faxed or scanned or emailed indoneisa loves a paper trail.
I was expecting it to be a difficult phone call. Yes SIR — understand all of that — I am emailing the forms for the FF purchase to you, along with the credit card authority form — complete it and sign or fax back with 24 hours. I hung up expecting issues — opened my email — downloaded the forms — signed them faxed them back. MattJ — Yeah, I was thinking about which airline would be the best comparison. Rick, I definitely share in your manias. The infamous SFO for those of us who read FlyerTalk , took advantage of the same sale and had this same flight. Very similar experience on the ground and the menu looks almost the same.
He has great pictures on his FT trip report post and his own website if anyone is interested.
Lucky, what would be your hotel of choice in Jakarta? Hilton has a nice new DoubleTree but the area is not a really nice area. Interesting that a relatively obscure airline has such a good first class product. I wonder who their core clientele is—who were the other passengers in the first class cabin? Noting that the Lowes amenity pack looks the same as the bus class pack I got on a Denpasar — Sydney flight. Curious what my return experience is like…. Hi Lucky. I wonder why. In any case, maybe just this time. Keep up the good work, I realize your full report is not yet up so maybe you will catch up to him.
Lucky, I am a devoted follower of your blogs because if I had the time I would be doing the same as you, we share the same passions: flying and writing about it. And your trip reports are perfect. This is the first time anyway that I post a comment for one of your reports and I think this particular one deserves it.
And I have been seeing the consistency and quality of Garuda Indonesia along this time and those are unbeatable. They definitely rank top 5 and for me I would say top 2. I have even voted for them a few days ago as the best airline in the world.

I have flown them extensively in economy and business class, domestic and regional. And they are always the same, simply phenomenal! Also, their customer service when you call them is very helpful and friendly. And for sure, use the limo transfer offered by GA for your trip back to CGK Airport, forget about those police escorts offers you got. Keep on enjoying the best of the best that Garuda Indonesia is offering to you. If I had known Garuda better from before and they had more long hauls flights and connections especially to the Americas, I would have definitely put all the eggs in their basket.
Anyway, back to topic, congratulations for your Garuda Experience and be sure your return flight will not be a miss.
Too bad they only have a few long haul routes. Forgot to mention, I noticed this is the only review may be there are any other posts, but very rare you post photo of the flight attendants. Any reason for this? Bob I would stay at Ritz Carlton in Jakarta.stacotheltire.tk
