Waiting this afternoon for my daughter to get her hair braided in a well known part of Bali, not far from the crew hotels and got talking to lady who owns the shop . She was saying the Virgin pilots where in earlier for a 4 hour massage . Sounds like a tough day at the office
BS alarm going off here. The crew hotels are not even close to each other, a shop can not be close to both of them. And what's the big deal about getting a massage in Bali?

couldn't travel insurance companies/airlines charter turbo props to fly DPS/SUB & then have jets at SUB ?


Would surely save insurance companies lot of $$$.

Turbo Props suck considerable amounts of air in the front too don't they mate? So surely if a 737 can't fly then neither can a Dash 8......

You would think chartering buses for overland transport to the next closest airport would be cheaper, but I guess that wouldn't provoke as much of a tingle in your inner spotter

Yep, the Indonesians need to build bridges from each island in the archipelago to the next to facilitate road transport from one island's airport, to the next.

As they say, props are for boats.

The road/rail link to SUB/CGK is really good, and if you have time should be on your bucket list. The scenery in Indonesia is amazing as a result of it sitting on a tectonic plate.

Heard today that our good friends in CGK have put a stop to all the adhoc flights to clear the backlog. Although they have been ferrying to DPS empty and operating adhoc home , it seems now CGK requires "the paperwork" to be in order. If true , the media should get onto it. Hard to operate extra services when you aren't allowed ....

Is it only adhoc flights between DPS and Australia that require this extra paperwork ?

Australia is not exactly flavour of the month in Indonesia.Relations have been prickly for quite some time.

TWT -as far as I know, it is not. I should have been more specific. After the Air Asia accident there has been some significant changes in the filing of notifications. Many delays waiting on the tarmac for your flight plan from CGK,you have no slot and you must depart before time XX (How can you expect to depart on time when you are held as the airport is closed for "15minutes" but really 30 +.

One chestnut I heard about occurred this week -

AUS carrier requested pushback. Aircraft on 10nm final. Aircraft lands and parks at gate , AUS carrier gets pushback. Coincidence I guess.

AUS inbound from north west , 737 from CGK inbound due west. AUS slowed , vectored and made number two to 737 when AUS was 20nm + in front of 737.

But we digress ...

It's not onerous to secure the necessary approvals. Indonesia, like most of Asia, require certain filings to be made. Approval is usually immediately issued, especially for known entities.
