Meet Up & Tips Thread AUH-CMB-CGK fare:

TIPS

PSA: You WILL receive TPs and Avios even on promotional fare I Class (the no miles restriction only applies to UL's own programme).
1. The footrest on the Neo is pretty useless. It's not deep enough to hold both feet, and too high for anyone over 5ft!
2. The IFE on the Neo is crisp, but the screens on the A321-200s are also very good - they fold out from the central armrest
3. Despite the 2300 departure time from AUH, meals are provided - and thus the lights come on. There's no blindfold in the UL miniature amenity kit, so bring your own.
4. Even with the seat in front of you fully reclined, there is plenty of space to get out
5. Despite the IFE and power boxes, there is a huge amount of legroom (even for me at 6ft).
6. Upon arrival into CGK, try and grab a golf-buggy to Passport Control. It is free, and tipping is hugely frowned upon (there's a sign) - it's much quicker than walking.
7. Dependent on your passport, you may have to fill in an Immigration form. UL do not stock them onboard.
8. Once through to the baggage hall, grab a Customs form, UL wont provide this on the plane, but you'll need it to exit into the main arrivals area.
9. If using Grab Taxi (around 60% cheaper than the official airport taxis), head to the right once through into the main Arrivals area. It will lead into the car park, where you will meet your driver.
10. UL use Check-In Desks C5-C9 - between entrances 2 and 3. There is Security upon entry, but only for your baggage.
11. The Saphire CGK lounge has poor air-con, but decent drinks and acceptable food choices. Good wifi too, with views of the runway, so you can spot your plane landing. The buffet area has the best air-con if you're warm.
12. There is no Fast Track for UL passengers, and be cautious of the Ladies Only Lane at security - which often has shorter queues, but which I couldn't use.
13. If it's a bussed departure from CMB (clue:the downstairs gates) don't bust a gut to kick your heels in the lounge. J-class passengers are the very last ones to be picked (by a dedicated bus). If you are last minute, let one of the supervisors know and he/she will facilitate your passage through security. This can be a successful ploy if you are simply impatient and have a J-class bc
14. At CGK UL will check bags on separate tickets to final destination -- reportedly this holds even where non-OneWorld carriers are involved.

Thanks for posting this fare. Did a 1 nt trip in CGK and was a fairly pleasant experience. The 320/321 seats are acceptable and I really enjoyed the food. I found not one but two amicable, fellow TP chasers who were on the same flights.

NB: your booking confirmation will say CGK T2 which is incorrect. UL is now in *T3*

When I went in January I arrived in and departed from T3. My upcoming booking says T2. It looks like it's a movable feast.

Hope the lounge is better in T2

one of the travelers bought their return flight on the same day this past weekend. The booking confirmation said T2, however there is no UL counter in T2. We then had to take the skytrain to T3. T3 is much newer and more modern. The lounge was perfectly ok for a contract lounge

Looks keep 1 day between is a safer way. Thanks for the info.
DXB is still there. ex-AUH is gone, expect they might file the fare again.

Uber were stopped from operating in AUH. The other way around I regularly pay 250AED-ish from JBR to Abu Dhabi with Uber.

I believe that Uber has now started again in AUH but it's a very recent thing. I haven't been in Abu Dhabi recently to check.

Wozza is right, but Uber is more expensive than meter taxis in AUH when I was there last month. You can plug AUH-DXB into your Uber app; it will cost you ~400 AED.

Uber is back, but by law they have to be more expensive than the Abu Dhabi taxis.

The advantage is not the price, but the quality of the car - they have to be a Lexus ES or better.

A friend of mine traveled out on this last week, returning the next day. He recognised all the people on his return flight, as those from the way out, so I thought I'd create a WIKI for those traveling to try and meet up.

No sign of this deal any longer from DXB or AUH on Google Flights so presumably this should be marked as a dead deal unless someone can show evidence it still is buyable

It's still showing for me. 520 ex AUH and 693 ex DXB seem to be the lowest prices, BUT you have to pick and choose your departure dates and length of stay.

E.g. https://www.google.com/flights#flt=A...;sc:b;sd:1;t:f
