Hi everyone!
Welcome to my Flight Report. In this report, I want to share about my trip to Kuala Lumpur with Lion Air. I decided to choose Lion Air because the price was cheap plus free 20kg baggage with big aircraft compared to other low cost airlines with the same route.

I decided to go to the airport at 05:00 and arrived at around 06:30 by using taxi. Then, I went inside the terminal building and proceeded to the check-in counter. Before you can enter the check-in area, you have to show your boarding pass or itinerary to the security officer, then you can proceed to the check-in counter. I went to the Lion Air check-in counter to collect my boarding pass and drop my baggage because Lion Air gives free 20 kg check-in baggage.

I was surprised when the staff told me that the flight was empty with only six passengers. After I got my boarding pass, I went upstairs to go to the immigration and boarding gate which is located on the second floor.
