I think it's Lion Air that has a "pray for a safe flight" card, including instructions for praying in major religions. Either very amusing or very disconcerting, especially when the interior fittings/decor start to come loose as those old Boeings shudder and rattle. Fortunately the friendly Lion Air stewardesses are there to take one's mind off crash worries.

I used to collect airline vomit bags.

Could only find this online:



i-beth, do you have the full kartu doa perjalanan?

And why is this section so difficult to post a picture in?

You can buy airplane utensils, blankets, and even food carts in some market in Jakarta.

I don't mind people taking things from airplanes, but please leave the safety jackets!

To Kenyeung (I dont know, somehow my quote doesnt work):

LOL! No!
And I never seen that before...
Amusing! Hehe...

I think you can also find that kinda praying stuff in AirAsia. And also the annoyance of thousand times announcement not to turn on cell in the plane.

Somehow I feel that AirAsia really think all the passenger are stupid hehe...

A woman posting on Yahoo Answers relates the use of the kartu doa:

Quoting: papars on yahoo answers
The worst experience I had was while flying in Indonesia, from Batam, which neighbors Singapore, to the Indonesian capital, Jakarta in June 2006.

My local business contact in Jakarta had booked us on Wings Fly, a very very budget carrier, which is a division of another low cost carrier, Lion Air. As I boarded the aircraft- an MD-8 which looked straight out of the aerospace museum, I noticed that the red paint on its nose had chipped badly. Inside, the scene was even worse as the cabin appeared like the interiors of a rickety bus.

Somewhere at around 35,000 feet AGL, we hit a severe weather turbulence and the plane was shaking real bad. The seats were also making a creaking sound and I felt that the aircraft would be ripped apart anytime. Down were the seas that had once raged as the Asian Tsunami...so you can imagine my fright.

A few minutes into the turbulence, a female stewardess made an announcement in Bahasa Indonesia and some heavily accented English. Almost instantly, I saw other passengers reach into their seat pockets and draw out something to read...something alarmingly called 'Invocation Card', which had the Moslem crescent, Christian cross, the Hindu aum and some Chinese symbols printed on its front.

Curious, I pulled out the one from my seat pocket to and found it contained prayers. Moslem, Roman Catholic, Protestant, Hindu, Buddhist and Chinese prayers...all asking for God to guide our pilots, hold the aircraft safe, protect us from air crash, to bless friends and relatives awaiting at the destination and so on. The words..aircrash, death etc were repeated quite a few times.

Reading that and seeing some other passengers spread their arms in prayers....I just cant describe how terrifying it was, in plain words.

When we finally landed I the Soekarno-Hatta airport, Jakarta, I almost kissed the ground. And swore never to fly any of those Indonesian budget carriers EVER AGAIN.

BTW... I took the Invocation Card from the plane as a memento of this trip.


Unfortunately, she didn't post a scan of the card.
