I recall reading some posts from our Indonesian residents a few months ago stating that the Jeddah flights had ended and the B744s were parked up. However for the past few weeks both of them have been noted regularly overflying HKG on mode-S. Anyone know where Lion Air is flying them to now?

Thanks.

DLC is the new destination I am told... Explains why they go around HKG airspace a lot now...

Thanks Mandala499. Whilst on the subject of Indonesian aviation, is Tiger Airways Indonesia the new name for Mandala Airlines? According to my sources one of the new Tiger Airways Singapore A320s transferred to them the other day with a rego in the Mandala block.

Not yet. Mandala must keep its name to restart, and after a while, they can change their name to whatever they want.... and yes, the aircraft has blue Mandala titles, and Tiger colours on the tail and wingtip fence.
PK-RMN was supposed to have flown to CGK on friday, but, "paperwork setback" has been cited for the latest delay.

(and no, I don't work for Mandala!

Mandala499 thanks once again for the info.   

I believe the LNI flights are not actually their own, but are being chartered by a company called Wings Abadi Air (the ATR operator presumably?). Any info on the nature of the flights? Rather odd combination of routes.
