Early wake in my well seasoned room in Chinatown KL, and ready to get on the bus to the airport. Flight to Jogja, at 1155 AM.
Airasia made things quite easy for travellers: plus the small size of its airport makes the waiting time quite comfortable. I’m a bit stressed for the “guitar as cabin luggage” thing, as it exceeds the normal sizes, but at the check in they tell me that it’s fine, as long as it’s inside a soft case. So i check my 10Kg little bacpack, that contains a kilo of clothes and 9 of cables, microphones, pedals, batteries and other music related stuff.
Sorry but no Ninja blades or water guns allowed on board !
Air Asia flyes in dozens of destinations across Asia, and you just have to get to the right platform and jump on the aircraft : as easy as catching a bus !
The choice of the color red and a slightly Cocacol-esque font, seem to be a good marketing tool for this extremely successful company!
I read somewhere that a good tip for musicians is to try to be one of the first to enter the aircraft: in this way there will be no stress in finding a place for the instrument.
This time i was actually the real first one..!
We kinda had a rough landing, as in this period the currents between Malaysia and java seem to be quite strong, but i’ve got safe in Jogja, right on time for a javanese nasi goreng…
