PostSubject: Lion Air planes   Fri Jul 22, 2011 10:04 am

Hi all,
I am new to this forum and have never been to Lombok but we are planning to come in September this year.
My question is about the Lion Air flights, would like to know if people use these flights regularly and what type of plane they use.
I don't like flying at all but I wont let it stop me and regularly fly to Bali and Vietnam.
I have never been on a propeller plane and not real keen on doing so, lol!.

Thanks in advance for your time to answer.

I believe Garuda has one evening flight from Denpasar/Bali (DPS) to Ampenan/Mataram (AMI) by Boeing 737. If you have a local contact, you should be able to make a reservation. I don't believe Garuda website will take reservations. By the way Ramadhan is during August and Idul Fitri will be at the end of that. Everyone travels during this time.

I also believe other flights from DPS to AMI are propeller flights. Companies like Merpati advertises three or four flights a day but they are renown for cancellations.

Use propeller flights if you do not have a tight schedule. The flight time is about 20 minutes.

I have no hesitation recommending Lion (well they fly under the Wings banner to Lombok).

I have flown on them dozens of times. And choose them first, having flown on all of them.

Nice newish prop planes, good condition. Much quicker getting on and off than garuda's 737's, although in Bali you need a bus trip out to the wings plane. Cheaper fares too. And more flights at better times in my opinion. But they do have a 15kg bag limit, although excess is only about $1 per kilo.

Avoid Merpati! Too many scary trips on them... Ancient planes.

Thanks for your replies. Will probably fly with Lion Air on your recommendation. Shocked

Hubby has no fear so he is keen but the flying times are much better than Garuda.

I have just booked flights on Lion Air for the end of August. I will let you know what I think.
I did fly with them in 2003 but it was from Jakarta to Bali and I really dont remember the flight.

I have always gone with Merpati because of the cheap fares.

Merpati, Garuda and Lion Air tickets are similar prices. ( around $33.00 per adult)

yes , high season prices. Otherwise as low as 206,000.
Interestingly, Lion is in hot water for its delayed flights out of Jakarta and Bali. But the Lion/Wings flight btw Bali and Lombok has alawysbeen good for me. Maybe cos it is just the same plane flying back and forth all day...
Merpati - well usually late, but sometime several hours early!

Lion Air the ATR turbo prop planes, they are new. Lion have a reputation for delays so take that into account.
