I'm Back In Jakarta

Well, i'm back here in Jakarta safely. I just heard that there was a plane accident again in Halim Perdanakusuma airport, but not a commercial plane i guess. I heard from Radio that was broadcasted while i'm in the airport bus going to Blok M to be picked up by my sister. Luckily this time there was no delay (well, actually it got delayed for 30 minutes from the original schedule, but since the airways had told me few days before, i didn't have to wait at the airport). I departed from Jogja at about 13:30 PM using Lion Air. I got seat number 35 C, which eventually didn't exist at the airship, so i got 37, the last seat in that plane, and people who actually got the 37's seat were moved into other seats. I wonder why did Lion didn't know the plane capacity. The stewardess just tried to allocate the passenger on the available seats. Well, at least i got a seat (even though it's very busy at the back, since the engine was located at both of my side, so it's fifty minutes of pain hearing the roaring engines). The plane was bumping up and down during the take off. Since i sat on the last seat, i could feel the bump very hard. But finally it could take off and about one hour later, we arrived at Soekarno Hatta Airport in Jakarta.

Next, i took an airport bus to go to Blok M, the nearest terminal to my aunt's house. There was a tourist who look like Eric S. Raymond and he was quite confused about a certain route. Luckily the driver of the bus was willing to help him out. After we arrived at the Blok M, my sister picked me up and we went to the JCC building to saw the house expo at that place.

After that, we went to Plaza Semanggi and i knew that there is a hot spot facility in this mall, so i went to Starbuck and use the hotspot to post this blog and download some package for the Slackware (it's good for testing the connection also) hehehe

    The difference in seating arrangement was because the flight you took should be serviced by a Boeing 737-200/300/400. Unfortunately the B737 might be stuck getting delayed somewhere else, or might be down to some technical failure, thus you got a replacement airplane from different type. From your explanation that the seat 35C was not there, it means you got an MD82 or MD90.

  2. Well, i thought so too, since i used to use Lion/Wings and this isn't the usual plane i used.
