    Garuda’s “Yo Yo service”, On then off, Stopping then direct, LGW, then LHR,

    Here’s the piece we published last week.

    Is Garuda preparing to cancel London route again?

    Updated.

    It appears Garuda will retain London but now operate via Amsterdam rather than non-stop.

    Today @Airlineroute tweeted “Garuda Indonesia has closed reservations for London Heathrow flights for most dates on/after late June 2019.”

    Although not officially confirmed by Garuda it now appears the London route to Indonesia will soon cease.

    I have checked its website and, for later this month, all I can see are connections via Amsterdam using KLM for the London-Amsterdam sector.

    Although travellers will be offered an alternative (via AMS) this is not ideal because of the schedule change.

    Garuda’s flight departed London in the evening but from Amsterdam its departure is at noon.

    It means people who have booked with Garuda will either have to depart London Heathrow at 0630 (to connect in AMS) or 2055 (which requires an overnight at Schiphol).

    We await further news.

    Mystery surrounds Garuda’s London route.

    A few days ago Airline Route reported that reservations had closed.

    Yesterday it reported that bookings were possible once again.

    The return flight would allow a 3 hour connection at DPS to GA 714 to SYD and 2 hour connection to GA 718 to MEL. At least while this current announcement applies.

    With this total lack of organisation, let alone decision making, it makes you wonder if the ambivalence extends to maintenance
