Citilink indonesia BPN-SUB (Is it the 4 star low cost airlines?)

Hi guys, so this is my final plane ride before i went to school. Today i’m flying from balikpapan in the island of borneo to my hometown,Surabaya

The airport looks pretty deserted but the airport is very modern


This is the small international section that only serves a daily silk air flight to singapore, a wings air flight to kota kinabalu and hajj flights

Now this is the thing that i hate the most from indonesians airport,people that laying down on the seats that can be occupied by a couple of people
The wifi at the airport was okay by indonesian standarts…

Some traffic at the airport that evening…

The boarding gate 30 minutes before boarding (@george @ouzi, both of you must be familliar with this)

I asked for priority boarding because i had surgery on my feet and the ground staff obliged…


Today’s ride was PK-GLK, A 5.7 Year old A320…

Legroom was okay…

The view from my seat… The window was pretty scratched…

Now citilink indonesia probably has the tightest turnaround time for any airline in the world. They board the departing passangers as the incoming passangers disembark from the plane… which is not 4 star worthy IMO…

A Garuda CRJ 1000 was pulling up to the gate

The BOB menu on this flight which IMO is quite expensive… 4 USD for that box of rice? I would prefer to buy a burger in the fastfood restaurant outside the airport and bring it to the plane…

The content of the seatback pocket, which is the duty free magazine,food menu,safety card and in flight magazine…
We pushed back on time…

This is the old terminal,which i’ve never been to but im sure it was bad…

The view right after take off…

My personal IFE for todays flight was captain joe and david de gea’s save… (He’s the best in the world btw…)

The view along the way…

The cabin on that flight was 60 percent full


The cabin crew on that day was okay… They were friendly but not engaging…

we landed on time and parked next to another citilink A320s

We arrived on the furthest gate which is bad since all you can see was endless “tunnel”

Citilink uses the former international terminal in juanda which is okay at best…

Verdict:
Is citilink a 4 star lowcost airline? IMO its a No because their cabin crew wasnt really consistent,airasia is a bit better with their cabin crew… Citilink’s BOB menu was rather limited unlike airasia…

Thank you for reading my TR…
