30 March 2018- This was Malaysia Airlines flight from Soekarno Hatta International Airport (SHIA), Indonesia to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia using Boeing 737-800 aircraft with capacity about 166 passengers. This 2 hours flight occurred from 04:25 Jakarta time to 7:25 pm Kuala Lumpur time.
I issued ticket on October 7th, 2017 or 5.5 months before departure on price about Rp. 605,000 without seat choosing. Seat choosing add-on would be charged seat fee about 11 Ringgit or Rp. 40.052 (yes …. I choosed a seat 3 weeks before departured).

At 00:30, I headed towards Soekarno Hatta International Airport (SHIA) by Grab Car service at cost about Rp. 136.000 and got off at Terminal 2D. Upon arrived at airport, I couldn’t go directly to check-in counter because I must wait screening gate was opened. Finally screening gate was opened at 02:00. Some foreigners were disappointed because of it. I also didn’t know why the gate didn’t open for 24 hours.
Screening my backpack was smoothly then I went to check-in counter. Apparently I still had to queue and waited for 10 minutes until counter was opened. Actually I already had a boarding pass through web check-in process that I did independently, but when I asked to check-in staff what I could go directly to immigration counter, he said it was better for me to re-printed my boarding pass using paper from check-in counter. Yes finally I must queued

The steward asked to me “Would you like to ate now or later?” Because I replied that I would eat later, then he gived me a plastic bag with Malaysia Airlines logo to brought my food when arrived at KLIA.
After 2 hours trip I landed smoothly at KLIA.
