WiFi works but is limited and slow. Expect more updates in Colombo

Onboard the plane to CGK now. 2-2-2 config but good crew and very comfy! WiFi access in airport was a nightmare so expect the next update when I hopefully make the b2b in CGK

Failed at CGK due to a slow inbound and check in desk staff not around when I needed BPs! Got through immigration very fast but to no joy. Gonna go for a swim before flying back tomorrow now and will post all the UL info later

That is a shame but one of the risks of these kinds of trips.

i am sure you will come up with something to replace it

That's a shame.

Assuming you had no bags to check, I'd have done airside transit and headed to the gate. While the gate can't print BPs at CGK (at least they couldn't about a decade ago when I last did a turn there) they can arrange to get one printed landside and brought to you.

Let's hope it's all worth it when you sip your first Espresso Martini in the CCR ahead of a 17.50 RFS to Europe

But what I most loved was the next flight to CGK. Amazing crew. Very light loads (5 in J) and a very comfy seat

UL A332
I passed on the breakfast main as was full...smelt good though!
