Lagi bagus kalau semua flight dlm dunia ini tidak hidangkan arak. Kasihan lihat pramugara/i yg muslim terpaksa hidangkan arak kpd passenger atas tuntutan kerja. Arak dan judi sama saja tahap dosanya. Kalau nak banteras, banteras semua.

Oh, I thought it's the Beluga Sturgeon's caviar from the Caspian Sea. It might be from our very own Jerantut's caviar varieties.

This thread is about special delicacy that's to be served in A380. Another A380 is coming for the kangaroo route, and MAS is incresing the number of flights to certain destinations due to favorable response. You obviously don't have the brain to discuss this and it is apparent that you've never been inside a plane.

Do you know that Garuda was actually operating at a loss but it was covered by the government with financial back-ups all these years?

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000087239639...

JAKARTA—Flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia said Monday it booked $2.02 million in net losses during the first six months of the year compared with a net loss of $22.40 million a year earlier as higher revenue was offset by greater operating costs.

Revenue for the January-to-June period rose to $1.51 billion from $1.28 billion.

However, operating costs rose 14% to $1.50 billion from $1.32 billion.

Cash on hand as of June 30 was $253.99 million compared with $490.57 million.

The company didn't provide an explanation for the first-half performance.

INTERVIEW: Garuda Indonesia Expects 2012 Net Profit to Grow 20%

JAKARTA--Flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia (GIAA.JK) expects its net profit and revenue to increase by at least 20% this year, mainly because it is carrying more passengers on each flight amid growing demand for air travel in the country, its chief executive said in an interview.

The nation's largest airline by assets also expects to earmark about $450 million in capital expenditure for next year, up from $400 million in 2012, to help purchase more aircraft and for promotion and maintenance as it aims to deliver similar growth rates for profit and revenue, Garuda Indonesia Chief Executive Emirsyah Satar told Dow Jones Newswires.

"We are considering raising funds through issuing bonds or bank loans to help finance the capex next year," he said.

Indonesian carriers have been bulking up their fleets to meet demand for domestic and overseas air travel from an expanding middle class in Southeast Asia's biggest and fastest growing economy. The number of domestic and international passengers in the air in Indonesia grew by more than 65% in the past two years to about 68 million last year, according to Indonesia's Directorate General of Civil Aviation.

But Indonesia is still seen by many analysts as one of the world's last, big growth markets for air travel. While its population of about 240 million people makes Indonesia the world's fourth most populous country after China, India and the U.S., only a small portion of its citizens have ever flown.

Garuda's forecast profit would be much slower than a 56% increase in earnings in 2011, but that is mostly because of the airline's plan to help finance the aircraft purchases, said Bernardus Irawan, a fund manager at Lautandhana Securities.

The 69% government-owned company, which became a public company last year after raising $578 million in an initial public offering, is scheduled to take delivery of a further 10 aircraft in the second half of this year, comprising one Airbus A330-200, four A320s and five Bombardier CRJ1000 Next Gens, bringing deliveries for the year to 20.

"By the end of the year, we will have 105 aircraft, with an average age of six years. The solid air fleet should help improve our earnings in the future," Mr. Emirsyah said.

Garuda's net profit in 2011 rose to 831 billion rupiah ($84.8 million), from IDR518 billion in 2010, thanks to a 39% increase in revenue to IDR27.17 trillion from IDR19.53 trillion.

The strong results from Garuda came after it underwent a massive turnaround since it avoided bankruptcy during the 2008 global financial crisis because of high debt levels.

The company had a "painful" two years after avoiding bankruptcy, he said. "Shareholders and creditors agreed to restructure $900 million in debts at that time."

As the result of the debt restructuring, Garuda's total liability dropped to $404 million at the end of June 2012, with assets increasing to $2.10 billion from around $1.1 billion in 2007.

"We plan to further cut our short-term debts to create higher net profit," Mr. Emirsyah said.

The airline's net gearing of 18% as of June 2012 is very low for the airline industry, analysts said.

"This means the company has room to finance its expansion plans through debt financing if necessary," Danareksa analyst Ananika Mieke said in a recent research note.

The global airline industry has been hit by a double whammy of soaring fuel prices, stiff competition and lower demand especially for premium seats. The International Air Transport Association in November cut its forecast for industry profits in 2012 by a quarter to US$3.5 billion, but warned that could plunge to a loss of more than US$8 billion if Europe's debt problems trigger another banking crisis.

During the first six months of 2012, Garuda booked a $2.03 million net loss, narrower than its $22.40 million net loss in the same period a year earlier, as higher revenue was offset by greater operating costs because of higher fuel prices. Revenue for the January-to-June period rose 18% to $1.51 billion from $1.28 billion, thanks to a higher passenger load factor, or the proportion of seats filled on each flight.

"Cyclically, our earnings in the second half of the year increase significantly, which could offset losses in the previous half," said Mr. Emirsyah. Garuda, along with other Indonesian airlines, will benefit from its status as an authorized operator to carry around 250,000 Indonesians during the Haj pilgrimage, and the peak holiday seasons to celebrate Eid al-fitr and Christmas in the second half of the year.

During the January-June period, the airline carried 9.6 million passengers, up 22% from 7.9 million a year earlier.

"We expect to carry around 20 million passengers this year, compared with 17.1 million a year earlier," Mr. Emirsyah said.

In the highly competitive and fast growing Indonesian market, Garuda has a domestic market share of around 30%, with the remainder held by unlisted airlines including Indonesia AirAsia, the local unit of Asia's largest budget airline, AirAsia Bhd., and Lion Air.

That competition looks set to increase as AirAsia continues its rapid rollout in the country, with the Malaysian carrier announcing plans earlier this year to buy a sizable stake in one of its Indonesian rivals, Batavia Air.

In February, Indonesian carrier Lion Air formally signed a $22.4 billion deal for 230 Boeing aircraft, the single largest contract in commercial aviation history.
