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.

Wiki updated. Was already in the UAE and got told I had to go see a client for a day in Jakarta. Think work were a little bemused why I wasn't p*ssed off.

It starts to remind me of the HEL-LHR runs...

I booked a couple of trips in May and I'm probably doing it again in September

I've entered some flights in the Wiki for next month. Considering another go in May.

For the March flights I have a question. It seems clear that a B2B on UL at CGK doesn't work, but I plan to continue with MH to KUL. Layover in CGK 2h 10min, but as MH allows for web check-in 48 h in advance, I'll check in and print BP already before leaving LHR [lounge printing, but without breakfast ] . Needless to say I'll go HBO.

Would anyone hesitate to perform this procedure?

Now that UL has moved to Terminal 3 (also used by MH), that should be an easier transit in CGK, especially if you already have your MH boarding pass.

Is there any recommendation for a Marriott chain hotel near the airport?

How long before departure time the AUH check-in desk opens? Two or three hours?

My e-ticket receipt says 3 hours (and that was also the case in DXB)

Great news for me! I have a couple of trips CGK-DXB-CGK with UL (purchased when they still had the 1000 usd deal for this sector). I use MH to position me at CGK. Last time it was hell to get out from T3 to T2 (to check-in with UL) as one need transit visa (stamp) and go through immigration twice.

A question to those already done this route - what AUH hotel to recommend for at least the outbound? Spending 20h in an airport isn't tempting, even if there were lounges open (haven't actually checked if there are). Premier Inn has a convenient location, and as has been reported, liberally allows late check-out at 18.00, which suites well for a 22.00 departure. Any other suggestions?

A suggestion for the Wiki would be to enter both positioning flights and hotel stays related. Any aspects on that?

I'm staying at the downtown Holiday Inn tonight - I'll let you know. Hopefully, I can leave my bag there during the day and see a bit of the city.
