Best One World Flight Routing For Indonesia: September, 2018

Jump to last reply

My annual solo trip next year will most likely be to Indonesia. I want to work out the routing now, as the flight inventory will open in a few weeks.

Here are the constraints:

I will be traveling on an AA One World Award, and Cathay Pacific is the carrier in the region. After flying from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, there are three choices of destinations in Indonesia: Jakarta (Java), Surabaya (Java), or Denpasar (Bali). I can easily take Garuda flights within Indonesia on a paid ticket.

I typically get my international tickets a year in advance, and then worry about the details later. So my question to you is, given that I will have about 23 days on the ground, shall I fly into Surabaya, and depart from Denpasar?

My interests are culture, wildlife, and history, but not beaches or diving. I was thinking of seeing the historical sites in Java first, and then going to Sulawesi to see the funerals, and spending maybe just the last three nights in Ubud. At this point, I do not want to deal with the details of an itinerary--I mostly want to know it Surabaya is a better airport for flying into for the historical sites, versus Java. I looked at various trip reports here, but I am unclear what the ideal path is for Java--if I start in Surabaya, what airport would I use to fly to Sulawesi?

Thank you, as always.
