The Jakarta Post reports that the national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia has delayed its planned November 2, 2013 commencement of service form Jakarta to London, blaming the postponement on sub-standard runway conditions at Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. 
Reports reveal that the Jakarta runway needs reinforcement in order to safely accommodate the fully loaded and fully fueled Boeing 777-300ER aircraft Garuda intends to fly for its return to the British Isles.
The CEO of the Airline, Emirsyah Satar, described the Jakarta airport’s paving saying: "Due to such conditions there will be a 'restricted take-off weight' of 329.365 kg, which means Garuda Indonesia has to reduce capacity to 39 passengers and cannot transport cargo during each flight, thereby causing the carrier to suffer significant losses.
With the runway operating up to specification for the Boeing 737-300ER the aircraft has the capacity to carry 314 passengers and 11 tons of cargo non-stop from Jakarta to London.
Garuda’s plan is to operate a non-stop Jakarta-London service five times each week leaving Jakarta at 50 minutes past midnight and arriving in London at 8:30 am. The return flight will leave London at 10:00 am landing in Jakarta at 6:15 a.m. the following morning at 6:15 am Jakarta time.

Garuda says it will now commence the Jakarta to London service in May 2014 once upgrades are made on the main runway in Jakarta.
