ANA All Nippon Airways – NH 937 – Tokyo Narita (NRT) to Jakarta (CGK)
Flight Time: 7 hour 40 minutes
Distance: 3,626 miles
Aircraft: Boeing 767-300
NH 938 lunch/dinner service menu in three languages: Japanese, English, and Bahasa Indonesia
(Of course) I went with the Japanese lunch set. Many different things in small portion: miso cup on top right, cold soba with egg garnish, vegetable bean sprout side on bottom right, Eel main entree set, and some sort of dorayaki with red bean filling.
Close up of eel rice set includes scrambled egg, shumai, vegetables, and brown rice.
Let’s take a Becak – ANA In-flight magazine article
As I flip through ANA’s in-flight magazine, I see a familiar yet ‘out-of-date’ sight: BECAK! Turns out they did a coverage on Indonesia’s answer to rickshaw. This mode of transportation is mostly banned by now in the capital city but still operates inside complexes or in smaller cities and towns.
For this article, they mainly covered the becaks in Jogjakarta and the art that goes into it. Similar to how tuk-tuk or jeepney drivers decorate their ride to the max.
They even visited one of the wheel-cover (term?) makers that puts a lot of effort into their trade. #Respect
Check out those wonderful designs!
More artistic designs! Too bad the write up is in Japanese, I can only understand the pictures. It was nice to see, again, foreigners appreciating Indonesia’s charm.
