It was the new plane that fascinated me most, while I only thought about the old one a few months later.

AirAsia Indonesian style With a flight in the afternoon I departed from Yogyakarta to the capital of Indonesia, Jakarta. For the first time I was to fly this route with AirAsia. It is called AirAsia here, but in fact it's a separate company that listens to the name Indonesia AirAsia.
