Uh oh. Received a schedule change for a flight tomorrow. 5 hours late. With #AirAsia. Let's see if we can reach them to get clarification, as the flight is still listed at the original departure time everywhere in their system.
@airasia_indo @AVA_airasia @airasia I booked my ticket through an agent, but they can't see the change as well. Your AVA doesn't allow me to do anything really, except for being pointed back to my agent, that doesn't see any change.
This email is the one mentioned in the SMS Image
@airasia_indo @AVA_airasia Following those steps leads to the following final answer without any option to contact a real person. Image
@airasia_indo @AVA_airasia
- Flight IS changed, you informed me.
- 5 hours is significant
- I didn't do anything, I can't reach a human being
- Flight is tomorrow.
@airasia_indo @AVA_airasia I guess I'll have to stick with a midnight arrival at my hotel as replacement with another airline is significantly more expensive, and getting a refund from AirAsia is always a hassle as well.
Guess I'll have to document this flight after all tomorrow. Didn't have plans for that as it's just another AirAsia flight, but hey.. who knows. 😂

Indonesia has a number PSO trains, with subsidized fares. Since they are not limited to certain groups of travelers, you can buy them as well. I found out the trip from Jakarta to the eastern point of Java can be done in three of those trains.
#indonesia #railway Image
For only 219.000 rupiah, or less than 14 euro you can travel this entire distance in 26.5 hours with two tight train changes. Since trains do run on time normally, this should be perfectly possible, but I should have e-boarding passes just to be sure.

You can also the afternoon & evening in Bandung by taking the Serayu train in the morning. That will set you back another 18k rupiah rough, just over an euro extra.

The soft launch of the two new LRT lines (LRT Jabobek, meaning Jakarta-Bogor-Depok-Bekasi - it doesn't run through Depok nor Bogor though, for now) is still slated for July 12 when passengers can use the system for free for a while. #LRTJabodebek #ujicoba #trialrun #LRT #Jakarta Image
Free is not entirely correct, as the cashless system used in the Greater Jakarta area doesn't allow for fares to be 0 rupiah, so you'll pay 1 rupiah instead. Apparently the operator didn't find this out until late last month. 😬
The two lines that will start is commercially split into three lines to make it easier to understand what train is going where. Let's run through these as well. Image

What is #BatikAir flight 7583 doing? It's trying to land at #Malang airport, but there is an ash NOTAM.

#volcano #eruption #EastJava #Indonesia Image
It has made one go-around and is returning to the airport for a second chance I think.
It just flew over the airport at 13.000 feet. Weird.

It slipped under my radar because I have PR card for #Indonesia, but signed into law mid February were new prices for visas to Indonesia. And they are high, very high, if you ask me.

#visa #expensive #visitIndonesia #tourismIndonesia #travel
The official document - in Indonesian - can be found here. I'll pick some of the highlights.…
Not listed is the price of a visa on arrival, as this has not increased and still is 500.000 rupiah, some 33 euro per traveler. That's twice the price it was years and years ago, but that's fine.

#GarudaIndonesia posts record loss of 2.4 billion USD over FY 2020. It took quite some time, it's over half way down 2021 already, but Indonesia's state-owned airline has finally published their numbers. Highlights? Here we go. (1/9)

Main points:
1. Sales down 68% YoY compared to the last non-corona year of 2019.
2. Liabilities exceed assets by a whopping 3.8 billion USD.
3. Negative cash-flow of 96.5 mil USD in 2020. (2/9)
What else, well.. this: "[...] Garuda's auditor PwC assigned a "no opinion" on the financial results - given when an auditor cannot judge whether a company's accounts have been properly created - which would further undermine investor confidence in the carrier." (3/9)
