INA: Batik Air [Economy, International, Short-Haul]

Simple sweet and savoury snacks to munch on~

My December 2017 trip ended with a virgin flight with Batik Air that's owned by the Lion Air Group headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia. Unlike Lion Air, it's a full service airline. For the short-haul flight from Jakarta to Singapore and vice versa, snacks are provided for Economy Class passengers. They are included in the ticket price.


Given that I had a fulfilling lunch at Pondok Laguna, those were enough for dinner.


ID Meal

Chicken Nugget Taste: 6/10

Two pieces of chicken nuggets were packed in a plastic packaging. I ate them with the garlic chili sauce provided, which was fiery and tasty enough.

Pizza Bun Taste: 6/10

Inside the same packaging was a square pizza bun topped with minced beef, tomato sauce and grated cheese. It actually tasted decent, but somewhat dry.

Chocolate Muffin - Taste: 7.5/10

I didn't expect a lot from the chocolate muffin, but it turned out to be the best item for the evening as the chocolate taste was pretty rich. Also, it was adequately moist.

Beverages

If I remember correctly, there were only mineral water and hot tea available. I didn't try the latter.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 6.5/10
Ambience: 7/10
Service: 7.5/10
Overall: 7/10

The flight attendants served with smiles pencilled on their faces. Pika's advice: Should you wish to pay just a bit more to fly in the Business Class cabin, you'll get a proper meal.
