Merpati - How Reliable Are They?

I am planning to fly Merpati DPS-AMI (Lombok)-DPS, and on my return leg I need to be pretty much on time to catch a connection.

Can anyone tell me how reliable/punctual they are in general? I know noone can tell ahead if that one particular flight will be on time, but since I've never taken MZ I just want to make sure this isn't an airline where long delays are commonplace.

Thanks

I don't wanna make you totally anxious, but I flew the same route a few years back and wasn't very impressed by their reliability. It could have been the weather though, since it was raining in DPS, but considering most flights departed more or less on time a 2-hour delay of our flight could not be excused for that reason.

On the flight back the air conditioning wasn't working properly, but we only had a 20-30 minute delay. Otherwise their airplanes are not actually the newest ones available at the time (to say the least  sarcastic  ) but onboard we got to experience real Indonesian hospitality.
