Indonesian airlines leased a B747-300 and a B747SR for their international expansion. These aircrafts were used for the Hadj operation this year however from what I hear, now they are just sitting around at Jakarta airport.

B747SR http://www.afm-news.de/specials/JED/pics/PK-IAU.jpg

Recently according to the airline website http://www.indonesian-airlines.co.id
indonesian airlines has started a direct service from Jakarta to Dubai.This makes it the only airline connecting the two cities with a direct flight.This flight is probably being operated by the B747-300, as the B747SR would not be able to make this journey with a full load.Therefore the future of the 747SR which is leased from logistic air http://www.logisticair.com is still uncertain.

I think I read on their website that the flight stops at Colombo. I guess for fuel?

The 747-300 has had it's titles removed and is sitting around Jakarta, so not sure of it's future. Indonesian Airlines was a promising carrier in Indonesia, but when I heard they were getting 747s, my opinion was that they were finished. Maybe I am right.

Here's what the 743 looks like now.

Yes... IAU is "missing" and IAT is still in that state...

I hear there's a requirement for 763s for immediate use through a local "broker", I suspect it's to replace the 743. IA has lost money from the 747... thanks to permit screw up during Hajj...

I guess its not all over for the B747-300.The airline website says they are using 747-300 on the Dubai route. IO 700 and IO 701 . How come this information is not available on Sabre?

Indonesian Airlines did report that they wish to fly their B747s to SIN and Amsterdam . . . what has become of these plans?

I saw their B727-200 (PK-IAF) operating into Bali Ngurah Rai Airport in the basic livery of Delta Airlines . . . seem to carry a healthy load. The folks who tumbled out of the plane nicely filled up 5 buses! The outbound flight too was well stocked with a new load of passengers and the B727 rotated somewhat later than other users at this airport.

Their announced plans to go to SIN and AMS have disappeared from their website...

KC, if you were there on a weekend, well, everyone's full on Bali flights on the weekend.

PIA747, the information is not in SABRE maybe because they are still not sure if it can go ahead...

We're all wondering on what they're playing at with the 747s. A lot of us down here are beginning if the smell of dodgy games we sniffed earlier in the year was true or not...

Let me translate it:

"Indonesian Airlines is opening international route, Jakarta-Dubai and back. The first flight will be on 1 May 2003. Get your ticket with our competitive price. Please call Indonesian Airlines' offices or your travel agents."

Here's the poster http://www.indonesian-airlines.co.id/ia/images/news/iklan3.jpg

Funny thing is the poster states that the 1st flight is on 24th April 2003, but the news states that it's on the 1st of May...

knowing Indonesia, and Indonesian Airline's news announcement in the past, I am not surprised if...
Poster states 1st flight is 24th April
News says it'll be on 1 May
The first flight ends up in October and not using the 747 !
