      True, but they are supposedly clean up their act since.

    Garuda Business Class means you actually have a life vest under your seat.

  • +10

    Well, correct me if i am wrong, but this airlines have improve considerably. Even when you consider the supposedly safe flying kangaroo i seems to hear more bad news and failures compares to Garuda. Anyway, keep the bad raps going so i can still get cheap deal in the future.

  • +5

    Garuda has improved a lot. I think they won an award from skytrax last year. I heard more near miss accident by Qantas lately.

    • +1

      Qantas may well have a lot more flights though…

      Still it is true this airline has apparently reinvented itself completely.

    • More flights or not, I've read a lot more bad press about Qantas than I have any other airline. Be it a fire in the cockpit, engine failure, rumoured offshoring, delayed and cancelled flights or fighting with the union when the CEO gets a 70% pay rise AND a $600,000 bonus.

      To me, Qantas are yesterday's news. Garuda -> Qantas for mine.

      • +9

        Perhaps you here more about Qantas than any other airline because they're the biggest airline in Australia?!? It's not like Australian press is going to report near flights having to return to destination for any foreign airline! The only news you will hear about foreign airlines is if there's a crash or fatality. Not likely anyone in Australia cares where any non-Australian airline hires their staff, pays their CEO or industrial action with their unions.

        No doubt standards have dropped, but to suggest they're an bad airline based on the amount of press coverage they receive is ridiculous.

        • +2

          true i have a mate working for a media company. the way they work is when Qantas is in the spotlight, they will have some one designated to hawk it for the tinest thing that is remotely related to the airline and make a story out of it. readers are simply craving for their news - any news

    • +1

      They won Most Improved Airline award.

      I won't hesitate to take their service. Just last year took a flight from Spore to Jakarta, and it was smooth and great service.

    • Qantas never crashed. Zero commercial passenger fatalities. That's some record

      • +1

        nothing is perfect in this world mate, i am not cursing qantas. but noting is 100% perfect thats what i can said, the past performance is not guarantee for future performance. u have heard this warning many times!!!

    Garuda has one of the more modern international fleets at the moment. Their safety record in the last 5 years is very good. It is up to you to decide, but I would not hesitate to fly with them and have done so in the recent past.

    • +3

      This is good to hear… I flew with them in the 90s and would definitely hesitate. There were comical issues, such as the audio for the in flight movie cutting out every 5-10minutes (movie kept playing) and the flight information announcement (e.g. about temperature at destination) which came on an A4 page and asked at the bottom to pass it over your head.

      Then there were some more worrying issues, like the plane looking like it had flown through many flocks of birds (paint was highly chipped) and an interior panel falling, with heavy speaker, on the head of the passenger next to me. It was interesting to see that the speaker was disconnected (probably why they use an A4 page for the info) and that the attendant was far more concerned about getting the panel back in than whether the person was ok.

      Anyway, I'm glad to hear the've improved (not that it was hard)!

      It doesn't matter how modern their aircraft are, if the people operating them are not up to scratch then you may as well have the oldest, most dilapidated aircraft…auto pilot doesn't do everything! I wouldn't fly with Garuda if they were giving tickets away..

      • next time u get free garuda ticket, please give it to me, i will fly with them for sure, free food, drinks, baggage.

  • +3

    I flew with Garuda in September of last year to Denpasar and would not hesitate to do so again. Fantastic staff, excellent on board services and great food! 2 thumbs up from me.

    As mentioned above, It's Qantas i'd hesitate with these days…

    • No Qantas! You end up lingering around a foreign airport.

  • +2

    They are great now..

  • I'd give it a try - business class to anywhere else or with other airlines is way pricier. Tho I did notice that pacific blue business class might not be much more, e.g. Syd-Dpsr 7/14 Mar $1412, with velocity points I can use.

    I flew Garuda business class from HKG to JKT earlier this year. The business class is pretty basic by business class standards, but still an obvious step up from economy of any airline. Seats were comfortable, food was good and service was very good (obviously don't expect Krug/Dom Perignon etc), entertainment system sucked though. Checkin process was pretty smooth as well (although that's probably more to do with HKG airport than Garuda). Their business class lounges suck, but at these prices, who cares?

    The whole aircraft looked pretty clean and I assume the service is good everywhere - have a look at the Skytrax ratings, they've improved considerably recently. Those prices look awesome for business class - I'd definitely fly it again if I was paying (there are better airlines, and lounges, if work is paying).

    • Why bother seeing a movie on a 5 inch screen using a horrid remote when you can fondle a tablet all through the flight?

      • because

        1. battery - i took off yesterday at 40% and would not have last the flight.
        2. on some flights the entertainment system is on when yoi board till you disembark. So no turning stuff off during takeoff and landing.
        • +1

          don't business class usually have a power plug these days?

      • +1

        they are using touch screen now

  • +4

    No problems with Garuda now - brand new planes and great service - 100 times better than my last two crap experiences with Qantas international.

  • +3

    I tried checking up flights on the Garuda website when the airline had their European flight specials- couldn't find any flights. I mean, I couldn't find any flights for the dates of the reputed specials. I lodged a complaint with the Garuda hotline, and the operator said that the website was maintained in Indonesia, and the webmasters wouldn't necessarily be aware of the specials. I told the operator (nicely, of course) for people like me who do all their bookings directly with airline sites, they were losing business.

  • They have improved indeed. I wouldn't hesitate flying with Garuda at all. The only problem that I have heard is still recurring is their delay and getting the information out to the passengers.

    So if you're more worried about missing your time schedule, then fly other flights.

  • +2

    been flying with them to Jakarta a few times in the past couple years. Everything went smooth. Be mindful not to forget to leave your local contact details (phone number so they can call you whenever there is a cancellation or delay - just to be on the safe side so you wont be turning up at the airport to find out that your flight has been canceled or changed or delayed - happened to my parents around 5 years ago).

  • +1

    check byojet.com.au then price beat with flightcentre

  • +1

    the weird thing they have immigration officer on board the airplane, they should allow people apply visa online rather than sent their immigration officer on board the airplane

    • I believe now you can get the visa-on-arrival at Sydney Airport after you check in when you fly with Garuda to Jakarta, I saw the VoA counter next to the Business Class check in counter

  • guys, most of qantas cabin stewards based in australia, but jetstar international most of them are foreigner, including the pilot. so it is hardly to said jetstar is really australia airlines, yes they based and registered in australia, but they behave like foreign airlines.

  • +1

    i had good pleasant flights with garuda last year. it's worth it.

  • +1

    just flew Garuda for the first time from HKG to Denpasar (Bali) and then DPS to MEL. Could not fault them on their service and food, comparable to cathay pacific and I can only see them improving. Denpasar airport isnt the flashiest but everything on board the plane was great.

  • When picking an airline, look at the general quality of life and the attitude the host country in general has to life itself… Indonesia is "second world" at best, and from my experiences of airlines from such countries I've always been left for want of something better. The worst record for safety has to go to the internal south American carriers. Disastrous. They even use recon parts on the boeing aircraft. Like Benny Hill used to say… "you know why they call it Boeing? cos when a bit falls off it goes 'boing boing boing'. Life is short, live on the edge, fly second class!!
