Flight Review – Indonesia AirAsia QZ265: Singapore to Jakarta (Soekarno-Hatta Terminal 2F) by Airbus A320-200

Indonesia AirAsia QZ265 SIN CGK 001

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.

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.

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.

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.
