JAPAN TO INDONESIA
JEPANG KE INDONESIA
Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome aboard this Airbus A330 on Garuda Indonesia GA889. Let’s cruise once more from coast to coast with myself as your host as those 23.5 year old Rolls Royce Trent 772-60s fill the air with the sound of the sky and that unmistakable aviation fuel scent that sets you off when you arrive at the airport terminal.
It’s been a little while as this pilot took a much needed little break from flying (we all have to from time to time to avoid overdoing it) and the enjoyment of being in the virtual skies has been reborn.
An almost full cabin of passengers today, including a delightful honeymooning couple up front in seats 7H a 7J who live in Osaka about to begin a 2 week exploration through the mainland and island tropics . We have a lot of Indonesian and Japanese nationals on board travelling to and from both on business and lots of people starting and returning from their adventures in both countries and beyond.
It was quite windy out there today - headwinds over both the East China and Philippine Sea made for a few bumps here and there but nothing that this old airframe can’t handle. This well aged plane has been flexing its muscles since 1996, shuffling earthlings around the place, each with their own story to tell and and history to give and today was no exception.
Our cabin crew (as always) did a great job of looking after all the passengers and we landed in Jakarta on time after a thoroughly enjoyable journey ✈ ✈ ✈
Hope to see you again soon for some more global exploration!
