Don’t call it a comeback but, it really is!  Garuda Indonesia (GI) was banned by the European Union including 3 additional Indonesian carriers after a 737 plane crashed.

The ban was later revoked in 2009 with GI soaring to the top of the list in budget friendly luxury.

GI shines bright with offerings their passengers love including: thoughtful and courteous staff, a clean cabin, comfy seats, and acceptable leg room.
