Low-cost but relaxing flight

We became a sandwich that was ok. The space between the seats is not enough. So if you are more than one meter seventy you will fell like in a prison. It was a short flight so there were only some news paper. The crew was friendly and well dressed. The captain was a comic he made some great jokes in english. For the luggage you have right of one cabin bag that must be not bigger than 20 of 15 of 50. And a chek-in bag cost 20 us dollar.

Between CGK and UPG

I flew between Jakarta and Makassar on Lion Air and to be honest I was not that reassured by the fact that it had been blacklisted. That didn't...

Avoid this airline at all costs

Terrible airline with worst crew I've ever encountered . Their flight was delayed from Bali to Jakarta which made us miss our international connection. When we asked the help of their ground crew they spent their time convincing us that it was our fault for planning only a 3 hours layover ! Even though we had checked with them before booking the international flight. Generally very unprofessional and unhelpful crew and a truly terrible flying experience !

It's incredible that this airline is blacklisted; its planes are brand new!

A perfect flight, and the planes still had that new plastic smell. I fly regularly with this airline without ever experiencing the slightest problem...

Problem-free flight

I've flown several times with this airline (in 2010 and 2013) without experiencing any problems (just two delays of less than one hour). The planes are new and the cabin crew are nice.
If this airline is blacklisted, then I suggest adding Swiss Air too (on a flight from Miami to Zurich I had no personal screen because of electrical problems, and I got drenched by the air conditioning) and Iberia (incapable of organising a return flight to Switzerland after another flight was cancelled).
Do things properly, and focus more on the European national airlines that are facing serious financial difficulties.

Problem free

From memory, the flight lasted three to four hours. The plane was full, with no empty seats. The plane looked fairly new. We boarded from the ground...
