Last November Garuda Indonesia had a great “Black Friday” sale, with discounted first & business class fares between London and Asia. I took advantage of this offer and flew from London to Jakarta in Garuda Indonesia first class, and then returned from Jakarta to Singapore to London.
The flights were incredible, and Garuda Indonesia no doubt has one of my favorite first class products in the world (and perhaps even my favorite). I’ve never flown an airline with staff who were so consistently and genuinely friendly.
A few weeks ago Garuda Indonesia had a 90% off award sale (including for first class), though that ended up being a bit of a cluster, meaning that not everyone who was interested was able to take advantage of the offer.
If you still want to fly Garuda Indonesia first class, the airline has brought back some great premium cabin fares out of London. The fares are valid:
- For tickets booked through January 25, 2017
- For travel through December 24, 2017
So, how good are the fares? You can fly:
- Roundtrip first class from London to Singapore for 2,367GBP
- Roundtrip first class from London to Jakarta for 2,426GBP
- Roundtrip business class from London to Singapore for 1,422GBP
- Roundtrip business class from London to Jakarta for 1,416GBP
One-way fares are also available, though they’re a bit more than half of the roundtrip cost. For example, a one-way first class ticket from London to Singapore can be had for 1,391GBP.
Garuda Indonesia truly has one of the world’s best first class products, so if you’ve been wanting to try the product but haven’t had the chance yet, this is a great opportunity to do so. You’ll want to hurry, though, as these fares are available through tomorrow at the latest.
