First Time Flying from Jakarta to Hongkong with Jetstar

After a hectic day at the office that made me cancel to leave the office early and made Dini wait at the loby for almost an hour (so sorry my dear Dini!), we left office at 4.45 and head to the airport. The traffic jam were really bad. Thanks God we arrived at 6.30 and got a great parking location. By the way, for you who wish to leave your car at the Cengkareng airport, the fare is IDR 20,000 for the first six hours and IDR 2,000 for every additional hour.

We had dinner first at Hokben at terminal 2 D then proceed the check in process. When we checked in, we were the first three customers,than when we finished, the queue became quite long. Surprisingly, they offer our lugage to be picked up in Hongkong despite that we stop over at Changi first. What a great service from Jetstar. Our lugage in total was 34 kg already, meaning there's only 6 kg left for our shopping..oh no...

After getting our boarding pass, we went to the "fiscal free" service and had to show copy of our tax id card (npwp) and also copy of our kartu keluarga as I don't have my own tax id. In return we got a fiscal free sticker tagging on our boarding pass. While the IDR 150,000 the airport tax was paid in the chek in counter. After that we just hang out at starbucks than went to the gate.

The boarding was on time and we were surprised with the aircraft condition. It was an A320 airbus, quite huge, clean, and seemed very well maintained. However the legroom was really short, even shorter than Air Asia. Flying without the kids using Jetstar, this airline considered ok (but when taking the kids to HK, Insya Alloh we're going to fly with SQ...aminn).

We also got a cupcake and a glass of mineral water.....not bad than nothing at all. Other than that we can purchase their meal and drinks. The hot meal (nasi lemak, hainanese chicken rice, spaghetti, noodles) range from SGD 8-10. While the drinks are for SGD 3 (mineral water, coke).

Now we're at Changi airport waiting our connecting flight to Hongkong. You can find internet in every corners so waiting here is not a problem for us. Hopefully our 6.20 flight will be on time.
