Quoting Boch (Reply 4): What are Lion Air's expansion plans with the 739ER's?
For now, the aircraft are deployed on the airline's domestic network, and I am really sceptic as to the chances of this airline's building an extesive regional network in the Asia-Pacific with its 739ER fleet. The airline's reputation is tainted by shabby service and a string of earlier incidents with the MD80 fleet. The airline did also announce plans for 6 of the 739ER to be configured in a 90-seat all business configuration for high frequency shuttle flights between its Jakarta homebase and both Singapore and Surabaya. Also this announcement is highly incredible: the airline has previously tried to operate a business class product and has failed miserably and, as for Singapore, it has reduced its initial schedule of 4 daily connections to just a single daily flight, because of stiff competition of SQ, GA and a host of other airlines on the route.

I tend to be sceptical about Lion Air doing a good job with these new toys, however I give them credit for trying and hope that with the introduction of this marvelous 737 a new era will start. Higher safety standards, better service and leaving behind everything bad that unfortunately now seem to have tied to the brand name and the Indonesian aviation as a whole...
I really wish them all the best, and great to see the 739ER program on the roll
