Oneworld: UL: DXB-CGK in J, $800 R/T

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.

Oneworld: UL: DXB-CGK in J, $800 R/T

UL seem to be having a J class sale - DXB-CMB-CGK r/t for around $800 in J - books into 'I' Class.
With BA that 560TPs return, and 8234 Miles.

Combination of A333/A332 and A321 depending on the days you choose. Can only book direct with UL for this price.
However, there are 2 flights a day from DXB on UL, and you want to choose wisely:

UL use an A333/A332 between DXB/CMB on the night departure at 2250 hours. And on a Sundays, UL fly an A332 between CMB-CGK (and back), so you can in theory go in comfort the whole way. On any other day, it's an A321 between CMB-CGK.

It's a great fare. I booked it in reverse a few months ago for a similar price, but then the CGK-CMB flights were all 332's. Bit of a downgrade to 321's.

Good find - this is even cheaper than the year-round CGK-DXB-CGK fare with UL, which is a perennial great tier point earner

Don't fret. Similar fare is normally available (from CGK to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kuwait and Muscat); and not exactly rare in the other direction. But be careful if TP hunting, Muscat Colombo is just under the magic mileage number.

Too bad is not the other way around... I already purchased the CGK-DXB with a two day stopover in CMB a couple months ago for 450... Problem is that you never know if one should wait for a better deal. Still ok for the price paid though...
BTW, do you know which lounge UL used in CGK? The oneworld website does not indicate it last time I checked. Is the lounge there good ?

While searching for the cancellation conditions of my trip to DXB from CGK in December, I noticed an equipment swap from a 332 to a 321 on the CGK-CMB leg and from their new 333 to a 332 on the CMB-DXB leg. No notifications whatsoever... 👎

Really it'S no big deal on a four-hour daytime flight. Indeed on any four-flight.

OK, flat beds are nice - and some like the isolation of single seats: but really not worth getting upset about.

Indeed no big deal. I just wanted to try their new business class seat on their 330-300. Never flew UL before...

From memory it was the Pura Indah First And Business Class Lounge (First Class section), which wasn't too bad, but IMO, no lounge at CGK is "good".
