Batik Air review
Being the part of Lion Air Group, Batik Air is undeniably its best subsidiary. The airline aims at the highest level of service in its Business Class, while the Economy Class provides enough comfort for the undemanding passengers. The seats have generous legroom, personal screens show a wide selection of movies, delicious Asian cuisine includes beverages and snacks. Most Batik Air flights depart and arrive on schedule, without prolonged delays which are a frequent experience for Lion Air customers. Ticket prices tend to be a bit higher than on Lion Air, and it can be easily justified by the Batik Air’s higher level of service.
