Destinations / Itineraries Is Garuda Indonesia leaving London (Heathrow)?

    Hi all

    I've been trying to book a return F/J ticket for my partner flying between CGK & LHR in Apr '19. I know their days of departure are supposed to be Tue, Thu, and Sat from both cities, but for some reason I'm unable to find itineraries by GA and their website stated "invalidity" or "incorrect request", something along those lines.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    Last week I checked on dates for travel in first class on Garuda Indonesia from Bali, through Jakarta onward to London Heathrow. The flights were available on the dates I wanted, specifically on November 13, 2018 later this year. I decided to wait a bit to purchase my ticket to firm up my travel plans.

    This weekend I checked again on the flights, and they have disappeared. Flight 86, which is their nonstop from Jakarta (CGK) to London (LHR) stops flying that route after October 27th. That is the last day they fly it. I called their reservations line in Jakarta and they saw the same thing I did, but did not know about any definitive cancellation of that flight or if they were just taking the plane out of service for a maintenance check.
    Can you please look into if they are cancelling their nonstop London service?
