There’s one particular airline that I always use wherever I go, because they always have promotions and discounts for the price of the ticket. Sometimes it can get really cheap, I even bought it only for like ‘hmm.. just in case i want to go’ LOL.. And I always choose this airline also because their local flight flies from Terminal 2 in Bandara Juanda Surabaya, which is my favorite terminal, haha.. Maybe you already know which airline that I’m talking about by now, but this post is really not meant to shame them or whatsoever.
The pick were actually amazing, I watched two movies that I found really nice! They were : Before We Go and The Intern. You can also always check your location from the TV; you can watch the view from the camera that’s attached below the airplane, and you can track how long the time needed to land on your next destination. They also have a USB port somewhere around the TV if you want to charge your phone.
When I said a meal, it’s not just a snack, it’s really a meal! From appetizer to dessert! Cathay even served snacks, red wine and beer, you can ask for a re-fill too!
The meal was not the best thing on earth, they can really improve that, but it’s WAY much better than nothing at all. Because on the low cost airline, you won’t get any meal, not even a mineral water. You can buy them if you want, but they will charge you a ridiculous price. For an instant noodle on the airplane, you can get a full course meal on the ground, no kidding.
Flying with a Premium Airline, is an experience that not many people can experience, with that said, you can meet people who are capable of spending a decent amount of money for their lifestyle a.k.a rich people (though from Hongkong to Surabaya 70% of the passengers were TKI & TKW). Therefore, you don’t want to miss the chance to make new friends! Or at least, talk to them, share some stories, experience, who knows from there you can get a new connection, or just a friend to talk on the plane.
This is kind of unnecessary to mention, but COME ON! If you get a FREE airplane ticket with a Premium Airline, don’t you want to brag it all over your social media? Well if you don’t, at least I DO! Even though I didn’t do it. Haha.. It’s not safe though to show people your airplane ticket on the social media, because it shows your personal informations, from your booking number, the bar code, just hide it. Hackers can track your credit card number and your security code from there, be careful. But still, if you’re holding a Premium Airline boarding pass, you must be proud, right? Especially if you bought it with your own money. It feels some kind of like an achievement, yeah? Just roll with me!
Most of the time, whenever I bought a promotional ticket from a low cost airline, they would always change the schedule of my flight, or change the airport that I’m heading to. Meanwhile, delayed schedule is not really a surprise for all of us who’s always using a low cost airline, it’s even expected and anticipated. On the very contrary, when I flew with a premium airline, I experience no delay at all. I departed and landed just right on time 🙂
After I know how it feels like to fly with a premium airlines? Kind of..
Will I stop using low cost airline after this?
No, I still can’t afford to buy the ticket.. My lifestyle is still not there yet..
Will I travel with a Premium Airlines next time?
DEFINITELY! Especially if it’s a long flight, I would love to fly with the premium airline next time. If I could afford it, I definitely would! 🙂 Really appreciate them for giving the passenger the best way to enjoy the flight in a very comfortable way..
