Heading to Jakarta again with competitive fares among the usual budget airlines, I opted for Indonesia AirAsia as usual since I’d get better food on board. Indonesia AirAsia QZ265 is a daily night flight from Singapore to Jakarta which is great for getting me a full Saturday for this weekend trip.
AirAsia’s check-in is at Row 4 at Changi Airport Terminal 4.
Heading to the FAST Check-in kiosk to get my boarding pass.

My flight will be departing from Gate G12.
As I was seating in a not very pleasant middle seat, I decided to be one of the last to board to minimise the agony.
PK-AXR will be flying me to Jakarta today.

Take-off was quick and uneventful as usual.
Shortly after the seat belt signs were switched off and customs forms were handed out, my dinner of Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak was served.
The Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak this time tasted rather similar to the AK version, and not the softer QZ version that I had the last time. Nevertheless, it still tasted pretty good like all the other Nasi Lemaks that AirAsia has served on board, and not like another airline which hit the internet recently.

The flight landed at 9.02pm – 7 minutes delayed from schedule.
Parked at a remote stand by the terminal building at Terminal 2F.
Surprisingly, there is an apron bus waiting despite being in front of the building. I guess it’s because of the upgrading works involved in the attached gate.

Here, I headed out to get a Blue Bird Taxi into the city from the taxi queue.
Overall, another pleasant flight with Indonesia AirAsia to Jakarta as always with the usual friendly crew and the usual delicious in-flight meal.
