Australia is a beautiful country with many places to explore in your own backyard.

An alternate option worth considering
In the past, Jetstar has been the only airline that flies direct from Adelaide to Bali. However, in April 2019, Malindo Air started its direct service from Adelaide to Bali. Malindo Air, as the name suggests, is co-operative airline between the two countries, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Malindo Air now has 4 flights a week departing Adelaide at 7.40am in the morning and arriving at Ngurah Rai International (Bali) airport at 11.45am local time, which still gives you half a day to explore Bali. The return flights to Adelaide leaves Bali at 12.05am arriving Adelaide at 7.40am.

The aircraft is a Boeing 737-800/900 comprising of 12 business class seats and 150/168 economy class seats.

We recently took the trip and found the aircraft to be very comfortable. The seats in the economy class are wider than normal low-cost airlines and with more legroom of 32" seat pitches. In-flight entertainment is included in the fare which was a surprise, however, you need to bring your own earphones. Meals are available for purchase at a very reasonable price when pre-booked. We pre-ordered nasi lemak (coconut rice) for only A$4.80. Though the portion was small, it was surprisingly delicious.

One concern was the cabin luggage space on board. There does not seem to be enough space for every passenger's carry-one baggage. This causes a bit of chaos leaving passengers irate. However, the air stewardesses did manage to find space in business class cabins while other baggage had to be checked in.

On the whole, it was a good experience with professional and courteous air stewardesses.

This is an alternative flight option to Bali worth considering.

Wow, never heard of this airline. Overhead space is always a problem, no matter the airline.

we are absolutely disgusted with the way we have been treated by this airline. We were traveling to a wedding. Our flights were canceled by Malindo early March before covid stopped international flights, but they have refused a refund. Our son has been told he will get a refund but has heard nothing more and a friend that was traveling with us has been told they have refunded him but he has received nothing. They seem to be using this pandemic as an excuse to get out returning our hard earned money. The wedding is now happening in Australia so we have no need for their travel if we would ever consider traveling with this airline in the future. Business will be judged by how they treat people now🤬
