Some luxury with Batavia Air After flying with AirAsia resulted in a slight disappointment I tried to fly with Batavia Air more often. They also have a number of new planes and offer regular fares which are attractive enough to give it a try as well. Fares are not that much different than those of AirAsia, but AirAsia just knows how to play the pricing game better.

Another hour of delay Before you know it you are in another boarding room. In this case on the airport of Hang Nadim. Back to Jakarta indeed, but the Batavia Air plane has not arrived yet so the minutes of delay start to count already. In contrary to the airport of Jakarta, there are no boards with information about the recently introduced laws on the protection of passengers in case of delay. Most people don't know about the fact that they have the right to a snack and a drink if there is a delay indeed.

One hour delay at Soetta I have just arrived at 'Soekarno-Hatta International Airport of Jakarta', or short just 'the airport' or even shorter Soetta. Later this afternoon, at 16:20 local time, my flight should depart. When I got out of the taxi about half an hour ago I first bought a cup of iced tea at A&W. Not the best choice in the area, but I needed over an hour to reach the airport and had already spend an hour in the bus. Two hours without drinking is far from good for me.

A Wings Air flight in the early morning I had to get quite early this time, around four o'clock in the morning. That time is better known here as subuh, about the time at which the first prayer of the day for Muslims is held. However the alarm from my cell phone - no need for a buzzer or watch - was set at exactly four o'clock, I woke up just a few minutes earlier. In the background I could already hear some mosques uttering their first call for prayer at this early time. However that is no reason for me to get up this early, catching a plane is.
