    This trip report for Garuda should actually begin by backing up to early June, when I purchased the ticket for a little under $340 one-way. By point of comparison, that was just fifty or so dollars more than economy tickets one-way on KLM or British Airways, so it was a bit of a no-brainer in that regard. When you book the First Class ticket with Garuda, you're told about the First Class Call Center in Jakarta which handles any and all requests a first class passenger might have. As previous trip reports have mentioned, Garuda is incredibly accommodating. They want you to have an outstanding experience, so the First Class Call Center (which also has an email contact, which was much easier for me) acts as a sort of concierge service. To test out the experience in advance, I emailed and asked whether a meal would be served on the short flight, and whether it was possible to receive an amenity kit. I was told the meal would be a "cold fish" dish, and they'd be happy to provide a kit for my use (as, from what I understand, the kits aren't ordinarily provided on the 45-minute leg). I emailed again to ask if it was possible to request a breakfast dish instead, but in the politest way possible was told they could only work to make the "cold fish" dish as breakfast-y as possible and didn't have much leeway in that aspect.
