Hi Hei Helloo! Welcome back to my new flight report! This time, I'll be reporting the very last part of my trip to London as I received free flight from UK Embassy Jakarta for another photo competition as a campaign of Visit Great Britain, so I was flying with my cousin and her friend on this trip as they start school in September.
After about a week stayed in Camden, London it was the time for me to go back to Indonesia. Actually I left the apartment to the airport little bit late since I went to the airport with the tube that may took longer time travel. The full route of this London Trip shown below:
HIA DOH Airport
After wandering little bit a while around the terminal, I went to the boarding lounge immediately because it was around midnight and I really want to rest ASAP…
Aircraft: Boeing 787-8
Registration: A7-BDD | Msn: 38348 | Age: 3.4 Years
Origin: Hamad International Airport, Doha, Qatar (DOH)
Destination: Soekarno-Hatta International Aiport, Tangerang-Jakarta, Indonesia (CGK)
Flight Date: Thursday, 12 September 2019
Boarding started by the zone. Glad they didn't put the pink/reddish boarding cabin light. I don't like that at all.
My seat for another 8 to 9 hours.
Old safety video I believe, and outside view to an Airbus A340 of Syrian something? do they have a running airline?
Taxi and took off
The menu and the cabin view. The super late dinner and super early breakfast. What to call this food served at around 2AM? The food taste was better than the DOH-LHR flight. Okay since the QR's cabin crew notorious for their slow pace service (as I observed) lots of passengers just walk back to the galley to put their meal tray after done. WHY? because it took forever to wait for them to get back to the aisle to clean up your table and seems like everyone want to sleep ASAP.
View outside, when sunrises on the horizons far far away. The cabin view before they completely shut off the light to let everyone rest.
Lavatory visit, I don't understand about this lavatory configuration, I mean the Handicapped or reduced mobility lavatory on JAL's B787 was kinda huge, but the QTR's was this standard size with a divider that can be opened?
So after the lavatory, I went straight to sleep mode and woke up after leaving India and nearly reaching Indonesian Airspace. What a good sleep!
Second meal service as we heading near to our destination. The taste of course really tasty. I ended up the brunch service with hot tea.
The PSU, reading materials on the seat back pocket, cabin view
Wing view: From blue clear sky, then gradually shown the bad air condition as we reached Jakarta
We taxied to the additional gates of international terminal 3 and anyway it wasn't my camera that crappy but it was the Jakarta metropolitan air pollution was super bad!
Can't see the A7-BDD very clear but thanks for the smooth ride! We parked between all Garuda heavies..
T3 CGK Airport
Long walk to the immigration and baggage reclaim area
Wait for the shuttle to go back to Bandung

Qatar meal catering was pretty much a confusion for me, one flight can be tasty as real restaurant food, while other flight may taste like rubbish. Also their hot coffee and hot tea service wasn't standardize, some of cabin crew will offer you the sugar, napkins, and the package like plastic spoon or something but sometimes they just pour your tea and left without offering you sugar/milk/something. This is weird. Also, I observed that QR cabin crew always back and forth if other pax asking for something again! This happened on my London bound, this cause delayed on meal serving, because the crew didn't serve everyone first and back again to the pax that asking for again and again. I also didn't found a crew that look fresh and 'enjoying' their job, everyone from all 4 flight always looks so exhausted even when the plane just started to boarding. I guess one of the unhappiest crew belong to them. Poor them.
