You would always first fly to Frankfurt in Lufthansa‘s European business class. From there, you would fly roughly 6 hours to Muscat. After a long layover there (roughly 7 hours), you would take another flight, flying almost 8 hours to Jakarta. The way back is almost identical to the outbound route. All Oman Air flights are operated with a Boeing 787.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
The Oman Air flights are issued in booking class R, while the short Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt is issued in booking class Z. The Oman Air flights should get you:
- 21,214 Miles on Oman Air Sindbad
- 21,214 Miles on Etihad Guest
Hotel prices in Jakarta usually start at roughly €15, depending on the hotel category. Whichever category and hotel you opt for, make sure to get the best price! Our recommendation is to search on booking.com, or even on our own Travel-Dealz hotel search:
Information & Tips for Jakarta
Jakarta is both the largest and the capital of Indonesia and is located in the north-west of the island of Java. The city is not only the financial, economic and cultural centre of Indonesia, but also the most populous city in Southeast Asia!
The Best Time to Visit
Not even dry season is completely dry on Java, but the temperatures and humidity from May to October are the most pleasant. Occasionally it can still be stormy.
From the airport to the city
A taxi from the airport to the city costs about €5-7 depending on the provider and the exact route. Alternatively, there are also cheaper shuttle buses, but some of them have a much longer journey time.
