I'm planning on visiting a friend in Indonesia with my girlfriend in september.
We're non-revving with KLM to SIN, but because we're not married or
living together I can't take her on a non rev ticket for the SIN-DNP leg.
I've been looking at different options and so far the best one was SIA.
The price for two return tickets SIN-DNP is 300 Euros.
The Garuda site is experiencing some problems right now so I wasn't able
to check it.
Are there any lesser known carriers(low costs) that fly that route,
that I should check, any help is greatly appreciated.
Offcourse with such a good price on SIA it's very tempting, cos I
always wanted to fly that airline.
SIA doesn''t participate in the interline agreements, so I can't non-rev
on them, so this would be a nice opportunity.
I assume SQ uses the T7 on that route???
Oh, and one more think(I'm being lazy, I know, but I like it, heheh)
Can anyone tell me if I can purchase the visa's upon arrival in DNP, or should
I get them in my home country??
Thanks in advance guys!!!
P.S. I choose SIN as intermediate station because the loads have lowered
a bit since it became dedicate service from AMS, and I think we have a better
chance to get seats than through KUL or BKK.

SQ uses 2-class 9V-SRx series 777s - most have old IFE and some are really worn out. I flew SIN-DPS-SIN last weekend. I didn't like the service at all, shorter BKK-SIN-BKK legs were much better 3 weeks ago.
AO offers fares about 300 SGD per person as well, but I guess SQ is your best choice. AK flies cheaply from KUL.
Visa On Arrival costs $25 for 30 days or $10 for 3 days, and the process is very fast and nothing to worry about.
