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.

Hi,
Yes there was a fare difference to pay..A couple of 100 pounds on the fare I originally got.

That must be the ordinary rate then, many of the tickets related here were , of course bought in the (one of many) sales.

I just got a mail from BA, graciously informing me that my outbound LHR-DXB has been cancelled, but still expect me to fly the return .

I'll try to call UL, I have one run and one TP optimized vacation booked late April. Looking at late summer for dates. Will probably take the higher fares, it really seems unlikely to expect any sales for many months to come.

If you have a round-trip ticket, then of course the choice of rescheduling or seeking a refund is up to you.

If you have two single tickets (and there are sometimes advantages in structuring trips in that way) then of course the return will still stand ..... until it, too, gets culled

Ouch, that hurts. To their defence, cancellations are only until March 25/28/30/31. But who thinks this situation is sorted out in just 10 days? Even if they actually do fly late April, I have no positioning flights available, as it seems right now.

My biggest issue is still that I am not allowed in the country having been in the UK in the last 14 days! So I hope they do cancel, otherwise it is a large insurance claim for 5 return flights.

Wow, 5 return flights! Were they they booked in consecutive order, with B2B or one day off in AUH/DXB? If so, that would probably have set a new record

Three were B2B, the other two had a break. However I believe eight B2B is the record on here!

Not so sure about that, I think someone posted having just performed 8 flights AUH-CGK and back, was praised as the hero of this thread, when later explaining that s/he had meant 8 flights, i.e. 2 return trips.

I'll wait a while before nominating you to the Guinness Book of Records

Has anyone been able to get a full refund for a booking that has some cancelled flights? I am hesitant to request a refund below when only three of my four flights have been cancelled, although I am sure it will be eventually, it's just that I am flying soon.

I contacted UL by email and through FB requesting a full refund, and eventually they advised I needed to fill in the online refund request form. In my case they had cancelled 3 out of the 4 flights, and I was starting my TP run in the next couple of days. I'm confident it will be refunded in full. I am comforted by the fact that the online request form is not a cancellation form. I.e. I am not asking for my booking to be cancelled, but for a refund due to UL cancelling a number of flights. If UL doesn't provide a full refund, then I'll go to Amex to complain, especially on the basis I have been explicitly clear in my communications that I am looking for a full refund and UL pushed me in to completing the online form.
