“Quick and cheap”
Review of Lion Air


Reviewed 20 December 2018

We chose this flight because it was at a suitable time to connect with an ongoing flight. It was around half of the price of Garuda whom we also used for the incoming flight. I could not detect any real difference with such a short flight, 30 minutes.
I admit to feeling a little nervous due to the recent Lion Air crash. When you see the huge number of flights Lion Air undertakes dally, it gives more perspective.
No complaints.

Lion air leg room is 29inches.. which is standard for normal indonesian, but since im not that "normal" (i'm 183cm), so 29 inches is a quite a cramped. But, at that particular flight, i dont know how my friends who did the check in put me in the seat at the very back of the plane, which was 737-900 ER. And somehow the leg room in that row is definately less than 29 inches.. maybe 26... because i know its still way smaller than airasia legroom which is 28 inches..
so if you are not typically "normal" indonesian ... make sure you are not seated at the very back of the plane. Always ask for emergency row...
