9 June 2007
Reason for Trip: Another wedding to attend! But knowing that Semarang it’s a real tiny town without much to offer, I opted for a 18 hour trip
Jakarta (CGK) – Semarang (SRG)
Flight: Garuda GA238
Flight time: 0.50 hrs
Cruise: 27000 feet
1st time I actually woke up the intended time I set myself! Maybe its going to be a day for firsts. Traffic to the airport was good and since I was holding a gold GFF card, I can use the business check in, therefore in no time I was relaxing in the lounge. Busy day at the lounge, managed to eat something, smoke, and then walked to the gate. Looks like a full load to SRG.

Anyone know why this Orient Thai B747 is doing in CGK?
My ride to SRG
Its nice to be in GA’s B735 as it has a much better interior than the other 737’s in its fleet. I was actually feeling okay in Y. As I predicted, it was a day of firsts! The plane left 5 mins early and also landed early! Meals were in the form of those crappy snack boxes which seems the norm for Indonesian carriers!

Town of Semarang
Novotel Semarang - where I stayed
10 June 2007
Semarang (SRG) – Jakarta (CGK)
Flight: Garuda GA235
Flight time: 0.43 hrs
Cruise: 25000 feet
After a quick stay in Semarang, it was time to go to the airport. For a small town, its really great to have a 4 star hotel like to new Novotel which I stayed in. Didn’t do much here, except attending the wedding and met some old faces. Airport is nice, old, but cosy. Didn’t bother with the lounge, but check in was a little slow today especially with only 1 person in front of me.

Walking to my ride home for the day, PK-GGT
We had to walk to the aircraft but it was a really short walk Another full flight back to Jakarta. Nothing much to talk about on this flight except this was one of the better condition B733 in GA’s fleet which I have been on!
