AMENDMENT: The airline confirmed on February 28 that this report is erroneous, and it has no current plans to drop its first class product on the London route.
Garuda Indonesia will no longer be offering first class seating to London from June 20 onwards as it looks to switch from a three-class to two-class Boeing B777-300ER, according to industry website airlineroute.net.
The configuration change for flights GA086/87 on the carrier’s Jakarta-Singapore-London Heathrow route will increase the overall number of seats from 314 to 393 at the expense of its first class cabin.
While airlineroute.net reported the change on Friday, February 3, at the time of writing Garuda is still offering first class seats on the route on its website.
Garuda currently operates the route three times weekly, with its Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday schedule not expected to change.
Full details for the Jakarta (CGK)-Singapore (SIN)-London Heathrow (LHR) route are as follows:
|GA086||CGK||SIN||0745||1035||Tue, Sat, Sun|
|GA087||LHR||SIN||2110||1730+1||Tue, Sat, Sun|
