AMS-KUL-CGK: house on both segments?

I'm flying this route in WBC, and wondering if they give a Delft house on both segments. Anyone know?

I have not flown this segment specifically, but on other short routes, have not gotten a house.

I think, but I stand to be corrected on this, that the FAs hand out houses on both segments, but that pax traveling AMS-CKG are only supposed to get one. I've also heard that not all FAs can be bothered to be selective on the second leg.

Indeed. My understanding is that pax on one-stop (ie: two segment) flights are only supposed to get one house. I also thought I saw a thread here some time ago, saying that pax flying only KUL-CGK (and vv) no longer got a house at all - but I may be mistaken.

However, I haven't flown AMS-CGK and my only experience of this has been on triangular flights (where it seems the service schedule includes distributing huisjes to eligible pax at the end of each segment, and so, as Johan said, FAs may not be selective about who has already had one - especially if there has been a crew change at the intermediate stop). However, for a short tag-on flight, the service schedule may be different (ie: if KUL-CGK pax don't get a house at all, then there would be no need to do a second distribution).

I flew KUL-CGK in July 2012 and was given a house though I understand that the rules may have changed recently.

That time the crew did check the PIL to ensure only those getting off at KUL were given a house.

The rule should be like this;
AMS-KUL; DBH to pax disembarking only(at KUL),KUL-CGK all pax receive a DBH, in other words flying AMS-CGK you should receive 1 DBH before landing at CGK
Same applicable on return all disembarking pax KUL get a house , if you continue to AMS you will receive it prior to landing at AMS. As there is a crew change at KUL there is sometimes some confusion or crew wants to please you i guess they will give an extra house(but there should always be enough for return flight i guess..)

They should. I certainly received one last month on SCL-EZE, which is comparable.
