Jakarta Layover (2 patterns):

2) Operate (SIN-CGK) will arrive Jakarta around 10pm local time, short stay of 9 Hours in Sheraton Airport Hotel, and get ready to take over the same aircraft that went the Perth turnaround. Basically, you will reach there in the dark, and leave the hotel in the dark.

Osaka Layover (A few patterns depending on scheduling of flights): Normally a 20-Hours stay. Arrive Osaka 11am local time and 9am local time following day briefing time.

You will be scheduled for flights on your seniority as well as language ability. They will need at least 1 PURSER (Manager of the flight) as well as 1 SENIOR (Leading of the flight at least 6 months of flying experience). Usually Jakarta layovers will be rostered to Malay speaking crew and Osaka Layovers to Japanese speaking crew as well as chinese speaking crew as the flight is via Taipei (SIN-TPE-KIX) or Manila (SIN-MNL-KIX).

There will be transport provided for flights reporting or returning (11pm to 7am). i.e (if you are rostered for flight reporting in the morning, you will be allocated for transport one-way). You have to go back on your own. :(
