Note: this was typed when I felt quiet angry with the stupido airline.
I’m supposed to go back to Jakarta TOMORROW, but suddenly earlier on the Garuda person called me to inform the our flight tomorrow is CANCELLED! wtf!
They said that the airplane broke down.
Ok la, still can understand that since I know Garuda is not a first class airlines like Cathay Pacific, SQ, or what. BUT, what pisses me off is…
WHY COULDN’T THEY MAKE A FLIGHT FOR US WITH ONE OF THEIR JOINT AIRLINES?? HOW IF THE PASSENGERS REALLY NEED TO GO BACK TO JAKARTA TOMORROW?!!
And I’m one of them. I am supposed to go to Malaysia this coming MONDAY, but because of the stupid dumb dumb airlines, I couldn’t manage to go there. Sumore, my tix to KL is the Super Saver one, and MAS said I can’t change the date. So there goes my (mum’s) USD 51!! (Yeah, it’s super cheap. the tix price itself is USD0 -YES, you read it correctly..ZERO! and so I just had to pay for the tax which is USD 51)
What’s more, they can’t even give me a refund for my loss of tix to KL!!
It is our sincere hope that through such efforts Garuda will remain a source of great national pride for Indonesia, and that we will continue to be one of Asia’s most respected airlines
That sentence was taken from Garuda Indonesia’s website.
Yeah, so much for the respected airlines. You won’t be respected! Even the service you offer is NOT worth the money. For our flight to Beijing, you use Boeing 737-800 which the aisle is NARROW, and the seats arrangement is 3 – 3. What’s more? the seats are small you can hardly be comfortable on them! And there’s no individual TV in front of your seat. Can you imagine a long-haul flight of approximately 8 hrs (including the transit time in Spore), without any TV? O-M-G! Do you think we just want to sleep in the plane? Get real la, you stupidos!
And you are already famous for OFTEN being delayed, I mean your flights. Can you, as the biggest airlines in Indonesia, make some changes and prove yourself as the SOURCE OF GREAT NATIONAL PRIDE FOR INDONESIA???!!!! YOU CERTAINLY ARE NOT A GREAT NATIONAL PRIDE!! Well, at least for me!
Cathay Pacific offers MUCH MUCH BETTER services.
Edit: I’m going to fly home tomorrow at 9:15. No more transit in Singapore, but in Guang Zhou. Will reach Jakarta around 19:35
And for the BJ-GZ flight, I’ll be using either China Southern/Air China/…,whereas from GZ-JKT I’ll be using Garuda.
