cheap flights look at Adam Air ... they may have a direct flight and be the cheapest option. You can also book online

i have flown Garuda many times, and found them to be fine.

My worst experience had been on British Airways (The guy sitting next to me died, they left the body there and served dinner!!!)

closely followed by Air India (18 hours, a movie and two meals whilst stuck on a runway - they wouldnt let us disembark!!!)

QANTAS flights to JKT are staffed by the oldest, rudest, most idle cabin crews in the world.

best:
Singapore Airlines (I fall in love on every flight),
JAL (cute Stewardesses love looking after Gaijing)

I still prefer to fly Garuda rather than Lion or Adam Air. SQ and Qantas are reliable but too bloody expensive!

Julian, if you're in Jakarta, perhaps you'll take AirAsia to go to Bali. Why is there no AirAsia flight from Singapore to Bali?

Isn't there any low-cost carrier airline in Singapore who flights directly to Bali?

You might also like to try Air Asia.

No, they don't do Singapore Bali. Singapore Darwin though.

Coz airasia doesn't have the what I think the landing rights into singapore. anyhow singapore protect its own LCC. Even if i want to take flight direct to singapore from kl(i mean shuttle) my choice over here is only MAS or SIA. If you want to take AirAsia, you have to stop in Senai Airport in Johor and take a shuttle bus into Singapore

It certainly will strike again with that shoddy company, Adam Air. Last week, the Adam Air flight I was on en route to Singapore, turned back to Jakarta after 40 minutes and had to do an emergency landing (Kuku can confirm, I SMSed him at the time). They never told us what the heck was going on, but I saw a bunch of electrical/coms equipment being changed. Read the stuff I put in the links here, positively shocking stuff with no regard for proper safety, proper equipment or properly qualified pilots:

There are some quite informed discussions at these blogs/forums, some by former Adam Air pilots and other technical folk:

To be fair Ricc, you live in Indonesia.

The roads are like quarries. the buses are travelling rust buckets, and road rules donít exist. Business is done on corruption and sex, and there is some strange Ďdonít see/donít tellĒ philosophy that pervades the moral fabric of society.

Why would you expect any better out of air travel?

Choose any airline that gives free beer, as long as it is not TIGER beers (only for Singapore people and expats with no idea)

Shocking I agree Ricc.
I was in Bali with friends from Jakarta at the time of the Adam Air accident. I blurted out, "Good thing I'm flying AirAsia.".
They retorted, "You're lucky. We're flying Adam Air!". (That was so embarassing!)
