I find it strange that it is being reported as a 738. I was just looking at the LionAir web page, and their fleet is listed as (16) MD90s, (2) 733s, (10) 734s, and the 739s. Not a 738 on the list. But, who knows. Maybe they have some 738s on lease? And yes, it is indeed that brand new plane, PK-LKS....
