A last minute CGK-DPS ticket on AirAsia is something like $90-150 depending on which flight you take (you'd need to maybe add luggage, etc.). Hmm, risk paying an extra couple hundred USD if things go pear-shaped or pay $1,000 extra guaranteed just to have one itinerary guaranteed? Jakarta's also not a terribly expensive city to spend a night in a decent hotel if it comes down to that.

When you're playing poker, always keep in mind the size of the pot you're playing for...

Then I'd see what my Air Asia options were. Make original flight, change flight, buy whole new ticket along original routing, etc.

Finally, if you need AA personnel, I'd probably just call the EXP line.
This sounds about right to me.
