Ah, I see it now, not scheduled through the year yet, but assume it will be. 1 hour connection time to GA 4152 BUT it's a 773 - so assume that it's the same plane (Fridays GA405 also 773) to avoid...

Hang on - just worked out that you can only fly LHR-DPS-CGK on the Tuesday flight, no late flight on Thu / Sat UK departures, so you have to overnight in Bali.

Doesn't ring true of my 40 odd trips to Indonesia? Never had an issue with customs staff (but yes, local expats I know have, mainly as they have 'bent' rules), but in Bali (which is a pain if you...

Mmm, sorry - there is no guilt trip here which is why I asked if they had the cancellation in writing. Because it COULD come back to them when someone tries to work out what happens. Not in that they...

That's a very unusual business practice if that's true, and I can't see why they would. They naturally have full access to BA's Tour Op fares which require ticketing 31 days (form memory, might be...

You're kind of comparing apples and pears.

Malindo has 69 aircraft and has been in existence since 2013.
Lion Air has 117 (?) aircraft and started flying in 2000.

Working in travel, this sounds like a major mess up by them that will cost them a fortune if they've ticketed it without taking balance from you. It will only become apparent to them when you no-show...

Oddly just received details of a 'flash sale' on them to Miami (470 in Y, 2,150 in J) which they are promoting. It's not as much of a detour as I thought (14h00 on way out inc. connection vs 10h00...

MH's A350 have some good value extra legroom seats (about 100 each way) in a separate row.
