Flew Jakarta to Semarang on ID6352, operated by a brand new A320. Ground service started out well, boarding was announced nearly ten minutes early - remarkable in the midst of busy CGK operations at 7pm. The flight itself, though, was unremarkable. Crew were okay - they get their job done well, but didn't seem polished. Sitting in the very last row of the A320, the seat had no recline, although pitch was perfectly acceptable for a short flight - 31 inches. However, what stood out was the IFE - or the lack thereof - which were offered on older aircraft but not this one. However, the return flight, ID6341, on a BSI-equipped 737, was a completely different story. We pushed back fifteen minutes before our scheduled departure time. Pitch was impressive for a 737, at 32 inches, giving enough legroom to stretch out all the way. The seat remained largely the same as on the departure flight, leather-clad, good, but not great. IFE was offered this time on a high-resolutiion 9 inch screen, although the screen flickered occasionally throughout the flight. However, the crew especially shone on this flight - they approached those of the world's most prestigious airlines, being professional, attentive and friendly. Meals on both flights were the exact same - a piece of bread - just adequate for a shorthaul hop. Overall, two satisfying experiences, after which I will strongly consider them for future domestic flights within Indonesia.
