Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 0726 from Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

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

At 3:00 pm I finally went to immigration counter. It was smoothly without any meaningful constraints.

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.
I had captured headquarters of Malaysia Airlines

KLM Flight-KL 0809 from Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta

March 18th, 2018-This flight was my first time to used service of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. And KLM became the 19th airline I had ever rode during my traveling. Every traveling I always tried to found different airlines to felt their difference services, but my priority was still the cheapest one.

I issued this ticket on September 18th, 2017, exactly 6 months before flight.

Harga KLM

 

Ticket price was 224.10 Ringgit or Rp. 768,748, very affordable for European airlines

Airport Coach drops me to KLIA at 14:00. I went straight to check-in counter.

KLM

I was the first check-in yet passenger…. lonely at counter

Based on my ticket, I must go to gate C3. Views of KLIA when I moved from check-in counter to Gate C3 didn’t tell here, guys. I would tell later when that I came by Malaysia Airlines after this trip.

Oh yes, this was my first time visited Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 1 (KLIA), because I often visited this neighbor country and always landed at KLIA 2 (it was Air Asia base). Seeing the building, KLIA terminal 1 looked like old building …. similarly like Soekarno Hatta International Airport Terminal 1 and 2 at Jakarta

C3 room

Gate C1 was Saudia Airlines boarding gate

Gate 3 view was building for POS Aviation – Malaysia’s Ground Service.

Waiting for 1.5 hours finally my plane came.

KLM flight from KLIA to Soekarno Hatta International Airport (SHIA) was operated by Air France. Some KLM flights from KLIA-SHIA was even operated by Garuda Indonesia. Actually this flight was a transfer flight from Amsterdam to Jakarta that transited in Kuala Lumpur. While waiting for loading process, there was a bonus for passangers:

Liliana Natsir

Several minutes before boarding …. Liliyana Natsir came …. She was Indonesia’s mix double badminton world champion.

Okay …. didn’t wait for long, finally I boarded to European class airplane.

interior klm

Plane interior was common…. just very happy for rode Air France’s plane.

Along flight, I got a warm wet tissue for face cleaner, vegetarian pie which was enough to replaced my dinner menu (saved my budget) and a glass of apple juice.

And along flight I saw “Dunkirk”…. I didn’t know why I like this movie. I had watched it three times before. Even on my previous trips, I also watched it in Thai Airways when flied to Kathmandu, Nepal.

It was the coolest view on this flight.

Pretty enough flight. I would tell you my another flight in different article.

30 Maret 2018- Ini adalah penerbangan pagi Malaysia Airlines dari Soekarno Hatta International Airport (SHIA), Jakarta ke Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Malaysia menggunakan pesawat jenis Boeing 737-800 berkapasitas 166 penumpang. Penerbangan 2 jam ini berlangsung dari jam 04:25 waktu Jakarta hingga jam 07:25 waktu Kuala Lumpur.

Pemesanan tiket Gw lakukan pada 7 Oktober 2017 atau 5,5 bulan sebelum keberangkatan dengan harga Rp. 605.000 tanpa pesan kursi. Add-on pemilihan kursi sendiri akan kena seat fee sebesar 11 Ringgit atau Rp. 40.052 (ya….Gw pilih kursi pada 3 minggu sebelum keberangkatan).

tiket dan seat fee

Kiri: e-ticket didapat saat issued  : Kanan: seat fee

Jam 00:30 Gw menuju Soekarno Hatta International Airport menggunakan jasa Grab Car dengan biaya Rp. 136.000 dan turun di Terminal 2D. Saat tiba di airport, Gw ga bisa langsung masuk ke konter check-in karena harus nunggu screening gate dibuka. Screening gate sendiri baru dibuka jam 02:00. Ada beberapa WNA yang keliatan bete karena proses menunggu ini. Gw juga ga tahu kenapa ga open 24 jam.

Screening backpack berjalan mulus dan masuklah Gw ke konter check-in. Ternyata masih harus ngantri dan nunggu 10 menit hingga konter dibuka. Sebetulnya Gw sudah punya boarding pass lewat proses web check-in yang Gw lakukan secara mandiri, namun ketika Gw nanya ke petugas konter apakah bisa langsung menuju konter imigrasi, dia bilang lebih baik boarding pass Gw diprint ulang menggunakan kertas dari konter check-in. Ya akhirnya Gw harus antri.

18 Maret 2018-Penerbangan kali ini adalah pertama kalinya menggunakan jasa KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Dan KLM menjadi maskapai ke-19 yang pernah Gw naiki selama traveling. Maklum setiap traveling Gw selalu berusaha mencari maskapai berbeda untuk merasakan perbedaan pelayanan saja, tetapi tetap ya prioritas pertama adalah cari yang termurah.

Gw issued tiket ini pada 18 September 2017, tepat 6 bulan sebelum penerbangan.

Airport Coach mengantarkan Gw ke KLIA tepat jam 14:00. Gw langsung menuju ke konter check-in.

Kayaknya Gw penumpang yang pertama check-in….sepi belum ada siapa-siapa

Berdasar tiket, Gw  harus menuju ke gate C3. Suasana KLIA saat perpindahan dari dari konter check in ke Gate C3 ga Gw ceritain disini ya gaes. Nanti akan Gw ceritain pas Gw naik Malaysia Airlines saja -trip setelah trip ini-.

Oh iya, kali ini pertama kalinya juga Gw menginjakkan kaki ke Kuala Lumpur International Airport Terminal 1 (KLIA), karena bolak-balik ke negeri jiran ini selalu turun di KLIA 2 -base nya Air Asia-. Melihat bangunannya memang KLIA terlihat layaknya bangunan tipe lama….ya mirip-mirip Soekarno Hatta International Airport Terminal 1 dan 2 lah kira-kira.

Sepanjang perjalanan Gw mendapatkan sebuah tisu basah hangat untuk pembasuh muka, vegetarian pie yang seporsinya cukup untuk menggantikan dinner Gw (lumayan kan hemat budget) dan segelas apple juice.

Dan sepanjang perjalanan Gw melihat film Dunkirk….Ga tau ya kenapa Gw suka film ini. Gw sampai nonton sampai 4x. Bahkan pada perjalanan sebelumnya, Gw juga nonton film ini di kabin Thai Airways ketika terbang ke Kathmandu, Nepal.
