During the peak season of Southeast Asian routes (Lebaran break for Indonesia in this case) , CAL usually uses 744s instead of the regular 333s. And they would sell 747's upper deck as economy class as there weren't as many business flyers during this time of the year. This is why I get to experience business class seats on this flight.
CI 761 is often delayed , and in today's case,the boarding commences after an hours delay. Today's aircraft isn't one of CAL's refurnished 744. The upper deck configuration is 2-2
Seated in Business Class didnt give us Business Class meals ofcourse. The choices are Cream chicken and Chinese styled fish fillets with side dishes of a delicious hot bun, a salad, assorted fruits and a little almond bar. The meal service was overall satisfactory.
CI 761 landed at 13:30 local time after an hours delay. With a total flight time of 4 hours 32 minutes.

The flight attendants were friendly and helpful and the IFE onboard was responsive and kept the passengers entertained. However, CAL's business class maybe a little out-of-date compared to her many Asian rivals. But it was still nice to fly with the CAL Jumbo again before them being gradually replaced by the 777s and 350s
