First; there were some comments on Garuda and CGK Jakarta airport. I flew them last year, 8 sectors AMS-Darwin and return, and I was deeply impressed; wide seats, abundant meals even on the short CGK-DPS sector, on time, and also Jakarta was quite a charming airport I think, with its round wooden structures, so I wonder when your lesser experiences occured.
Maybe I'm less critical. I have flown some 50 airlines ... maybe the Turkish charter company Air Alfa, which was disorganized, the 727 had broken seats, the A-300 broken (inside) wallpanels, all in all a bit worrysome. But no problem, they brought me safely where I wanted to go. But I like all airlines, always another experience... but some, even the better ones, disappoint me as their service is not as high as I'd expect, which happened with Crossair, Sabena or TWA.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
