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 prevent the flight from going well, during the wait and boarding, and they provided us with complementary water.
Boarding was fast without any particular problems, and the flight following it was pleasant. The pitch was enough for a flight of this length and for someone who is 5'5". The flight crew was very friendly. The only problem was the landing: the plane landed on the runway a little fast and bounced so much that I thought we had taken off again.
This was a good flight overall and great to use if you don't want to spend a fortune on tickets (I paid € 40 for this flight and took a 44lb suitcase).
