"Very solid"? I would say, by far one of the best Y products I've ever flown!

SkyTeam will be the laughing stock.

I was so worried that my upcoming flight from East Timor to Papua New Guinea wouldn't get MQMs.

This is what I remember about Garuda. I do not have a positive impression and some of the comments in this thread that they're now not quite as bad as they used to be are not reassuring to me.

The partnership between SQ and DL is dissolved and now ScareTeam adds GA when we already have SU. I understand there's a North Korean carrier not yet in any alliance....

I don't have a technical understanding of Garuda's alleged safety failures, but how often do people here talk about the suspension of codeshares by Delta and AF with Korean in 1999 over safety issues? At some point, continued safe operation shows the problems are in the past.
