The airconditioner was not working well, its quite hot inside the plane actually. Compare to the others flight (on my going home), i must tell this flight is a bad flight. No wonder my colleague never wants to use this flight (just for medan-nias route).

Though it’s a propeller and not a jet one, it’s not as frightening as I imagined. About three times round trip using this flight this year, only once I experience slight bumpy landing. The air conditioner switched off until we finished take off, so it’s quite hot in the beginning. Baggage capacity is enough for family of three on combined...

I used this flight on September 2017. It was an ATR aircraft (several airports in East Indonesia can't accommodate bigger aircraft). Honestly, I underestimated this flight, because I had several not so nice experiences with Lion Air (Both Lion and WIngs are part of Lion Group). Actually, this flight is better than what I expected. It was so ontime, and...

This airline is for me a doubtfull one. Let's put it this way. On the way back we opted for Garuda which a staggering US$ 8,- more expensive. The flight from Bali was delayed with a hour, no explanation. They did put a smile on my face when arriving in Lombok. The disembarkation music was Robbie Williams version of "I...

I had a meeting in manado,so I was wondering if there's a direct flight from Ambon to Manado. I just wanted to avoid transfer to makassar because it will take longer hours. Luckily there's a wings air now using ATR plane to manado. I never took wings air before,but since it's the only direct flight at the time, I'll take...

If I could give them no stars I would. This is purely a warning to anyone and everyone not to fly with them. Our flight to Lombok was delayed 1.5 hours. No biggie. Our return flight was delayed 7.5 hours with no reasoning given and no one able to provide us with accurate information. Their on time record is a...

Web checkin not possible. Call-center cannot check you in either. Call center useless. Last time staff at the airport useless. No snack provided, although required by law, if there is a certain delay. If you dont have to fly with them, dont fly. Worst airline ever, and I fly a lot.

Wings is associated with Lion Air and there isn't very much information available on baggage allowance. I booked tickets from Yogyakarta to Surabaya with Wings Air and a connecting flight to Lombok through Lion Air. As long as you have a connecting flight with Lion (which allows 20 kg baggage allowance) you don't have to pay anything. Otherwise, if you...
