Flying from London UK to Yogyakarta - best airline/route?

I am travelling to Yogyakarta in September from London, there seems to be varying advice on the best travel route and which airline to research.

There is an option to fly London - Amsterdam - Yogarkarta (but appears a long flight).

Would anyone recommend transferring via Bangkok, Singapore, KL, or even via a Middle East hub airport??

I have seen varying reports of Garuda, many are now quite old mind you, maybe their fleet has improved.

If possible looking at an airline that offers a reaosnable 'premium economy' option.

Any help gratefully received

SurreyGirl27, hello

<, (but appears a long flight).>>

ALL flights fron England to Indonesia will be long...LOL... no exception! About 24-30 hours with two connections.

1/ For September it seems like Emirates + Garuda offer the best fare.........Connections in DXB and CGK.

2/ <<I have seen varying reports of Garuda>>

Despite ANY report you read GARUDA is the most reliable/ recommended airline on local market and national flag carrier, all OTHER local options will be less reliable and less safe.

3/ Connection via SIN is possible, but only Indonesia AirAsia and Silk Air has a direct flight SIN-JOG, all other options have a stopover in CGK again.

4/ AirAsia also starts operating direct flight s to JOG from Johor Bahru (Begins 7 July 2014) and Kuala Lumpur.

I would recommend you fly the cheapest route to Singapore, which at the moment for SEP is with China Southern via Guangzhou. As a return fare this comes to £487. Then when in SIN, use Air Asia to JOG and back, which is probably another £100.
