Boarding




At the gate


What a looooong plane


Loooong but empty. Counted less than 30 passengers!!


Takeoff into the dawn


Breakfast. Yes, Lionair serves free food and drinks! Though it is nothing to shout about.


First Class legroom (Emex row seat)


Spot the stewardess in beautiful red kebaya


Huge winglet


The infamous Invocation Card


Lets all pray that we will reach our destination safely....


....and do not need to refer to the Safety Card


Overflying active volcanoes


Descending


Approaching Bali


Over Bali


Landing


Parked at the gate at DPS with SQ941 in view

After landing did I realise that my ears did not "pop" at all during the descend! Neither did my friend's. It has never happened to me before. Wierd.

Interesting set of pictures, thanks.

Amazing the load on the Lion Air flight, can't remember the last time I flew on such an empty flight!

It's amazing how big the 737 can be now, a far cry from the -200 models I used to travel on years back!

SQ's meal service is nothing to shout about but I guess better than nothing and much better than the Lion Air offering - must say suprised, though Lion would be BOB.

Very cool TR! JT's 739's look great. Did you use Lion Air's website to book your ticket? It doesn't seem like they can be purchased anywhere else.

Yep, used their website to book. The fare was only $0! I just paid taxes!

The flight was so empty that only 2 of the cabin crew were needed to conduct the meal service. The rest were just chit-chatting in the galley throughout the flight.

Yah, felt more like a B757/A321.

Was a bit disappointed with the meal service. Non-imaginative main course, dry brownie, no starters, and the crew did not even offer a full can of coke even though the flight was at most half full.
