    Air Asia Economy (short haul)

    on: A320

    4.6

    AirAsia Indonesia Route: Jakarta-Denapasar Seat: 18F Air Asia uses Jakarta’s third terminal, reserved for low-cost domestic carriers. Terminal 3 has a number of gate entrances dedicated to different carriers. AirAsia’s is the final one and by far the quietest. Check-in was smooth and had ...

    AirAsia Denpasar-Jakarta A320 Seat 1A Checked-in just behind a Chinese tour group, which took longer than expected. I’d paid for Xpress check-in that provides for preferred seating and priority boarding as I had a connection in Jakarta. 1A is a bulkhead window seat with extra leg-room and the ...

    on: B777-300 Regional (773)

    Route: Manila-Hong Kong Seat 17C Very busy flight and was upgraded in the lounge. The Manila CX lounge is pretty tired and dated for such a busy route but the staff are always friendly. I was guided into the First Class lounge here but the only advantage I can see is that it is less cramped than ...

    7.9

    Hong Kong Jakarta 18D It was Chinese New Year and Hong Kong airport was predictably packed, so check-in took forever. Got an upgrade and my first chance to sample the new Business Class offering. After all the hype and flak, I was intrigued. Boarding was pretty orderly but we still left half an ...

    Jakarta-Hong Kong Seat 16A I arrived on a domestic flight at Soekarno-Hatta airport around 4 hours ahead of departure time. Cathay doesn’t have any desks open until noon. I wasn’t the only one waiting for more than an hour. Can’t Cathay arrange to have at least one desk open for early ...

    Dragonair Economy (short haul)

    on: A320-200

    5.3

    Hong Kong-Manila. Seat 42A. On my online check-in, 42A appeared to be the last row of a cabin section, which I often prefer, but in fact there are no such divisions on board. In any case, flight was only about 40% full and I had the three-seat row to myself. I had one carry-on bag so check-in was ...

    4.0

    LHR-HKG 68K This is the old style seat - certainly nowhere near as comfortable as the new ones so a bit unlucky to get this but I had to book well in advance for the new year rush and so couldn't be too choosy. The London lounge was very busy with lots of kids and many prams, but all the kids ...

    HKG-LHR Seat 68k, window seat right at the back. Flying in between Xmas and new year, the flight was barely 40% full. I had no one beside me and some lucky people had an entire middle row of 4 seats to themselves. Can't complain though. I ran through a few movies picked at the meal and quickly ...

    LHR-GLA Seat 12F, this is a window seat over the wing. I sat in the great T5 lounge for an hour or so before the flight to grab a sandwich and read the UK papers, the flight was called on time and we boarded easily enough. However we then had a needless 35 minute delay caused (according to the ...

    GLA-LHR Seat 20 F (the return, and the same window seat toward the rear) It was still a public holiday + Glasgow Airport was fairly quiet. As I was on an onward OneWorld flight I had already checked in online for the route beyond LHR. BA staff immediately direct you to the automatic self check-in ...

    on: B747-400 Three-Class (74A)

    8.1

    Hong Kong-London Seat 68K This is the very back row of the plane. I booked this one since I prefer the rear but found two disadvantages. First it is too close to the toilets and that's always a risk on a long-haul flight. Second is that it is set about ten inches or so away from the window side so ...

    London Hong Kong Seat 53k This is a window seat in the last row of the middle section with a three-seat configuration. It's also close to the galley. I like Cathay's new economy product and find I can generally get 5-6 hours sleep during this run. The inflight entertainment is also so much better ...

    LHR-BCN Airbus A320 I made the mistake of booking this London-Barcelona code-share rather than an earlier BA-operated flight as I was due to arrive on a long-haul connection and wanted to leave plenty of time for the transfer. Big mistake. In the end, with a delay, this gave me nearly 7 hours to ...

Affordable and basic, the Singapore-Bali route is one of its busiest, so my ...
