Fare has been increasing up to 200% in the last few months. To the point that many people connects in KUL for domestic flights from Sumatera to CGK with AK group. While I see no problem with that, keep in mind that Indonesia is a very big archipelago and still very centralised so every business must be done in Jakarta (thanks to 32 years of dictatorship). While development is now starting to spread across the country, it doesn't change overnight. Repots also showed that domestic tourism has fell due to the rising ticket prices.
A good friend of mine works as an engineer at an airline and they work very professionally and up to the standard. So I'm a bit offended when some armchair expert just throwing stuff up without any facts or knowledge of the actual situation

I also agree that if the government feels the pricing is an issue, instead of mandating a blanket cut, they should instead look to offer more targeted subsidies to help out specific routes, or specific customers as an economic practice.

The economic cost from their fare hikes isn't worth $800k of profits.
The last time they had profits, the CEO was sacked because the profits was deemed "not enough"... That was the last time GA had a sustainable and systemic improvements...
