Hi. We are planning a trip from Jakarta to Bali next month. Looking at Super Air Jet Airlines. Anyone have any experience with them? We used to fly with Lion and no complaints, Super is under Lion so expect similar service and reliability.

Any comments?
 
In Indonesia I use mostly AirAsia, Citilink and Garuda. Reccomendation from people in the airline maintenance business.
 
SJ is ok
Ironically as you said owned by lion. Same as batik
But batik and SJ rarely have problems or delays
Only lying air

Some prefer to go through Halim on city

These days seems most airlines cancel delay reschedule postpone their flights to bali a lot

So plan accordingly
 
Garuda of course the better but mahal

Air asia stay away. Fewer flights mean miss or delay costs your 6-8 hours not just the next lion air one an hour later

And I'm not joking but if you are 6-8+ look into chartering your own
Honestly not a lot of difference $$
Take a turboprop not a jet and it's a couple of thousand if that
Divide by 6-8 and for the experience and novelty and service

But just a random idea
If you a big family like 8 + nanny and 16 bags etc

It seems you may be just lucky. Lion has a well established reputation for unreliability and delays.
 
A statement by the CEO in Indonesian media shows that the company will use a low-cost model. Super Air Jet would like to focus mainly on young, price-conscious passengers with a smooth appearance.

Lion Air Group currently has three airlines in its portfolio: Lion Air, Batik Air and Wings Air. With Super Air Jet, the aviation group would like to strengthen its market share and attract a younger audience.

Yes, the founder and owner of Lion and Super Air Jet Airlines is the same guy.

As other people have said you have been lucky if you have not experienced any delay. But many people not on business trip/meeting could tolerate the delay for a few hours. Also the airlines compensate it with their low cost, affordable to many people.

In my personal opinion, if they could improve the safety records, Lion Air & Super Air Jet Airlines have done a great job for Indonesia and Indonesian people.

It allows, people from other islands to travel to other islands, cities. In the past the only option is travelling by ship which might take 2-3 days. Or fly Garuda Indonesia Airways and pay a dear. Garuda Indonesia Airways although charging people a premium, they are not well managed. Their international fleets can not even compete with Emirates. Emirates booked a few billions USD profit in year 2023 alone while Garuda keep making loss. I am really sorry to see Garuda Indonesia ground staffs, foot soldiers, and stewardesses, great people who have become the victims of mismanagement and corruption.

Lion and Super Air Jet highlight how inefficient and corrupt the State owned Enterprise Garuda Indonesia is.


List of BUMNs that have suffered major losses in Indonesia, who is the worst?
Garuda Indonesia is #1 on the list

Also Lion and Super Air Jet Airlines with their cooperation with other fleets in South East Asia, they allow ordinary Indonesian people to travel to other SE Asian countries. In the past these options were just for the wealthy people.

I hope you were well compensated for the infomercial.
