Lion Air Boeing 747-400

Not sure why this exists. And for most of this planes stint with Lionair it has either been leased or stored. I think it is retired now correct me if im wrong.

    Nice job. I luckily caught PK-LHG at CGK a couple days ago. 

    Lion Air is notorious with their delays and cancellation. This plane is often used as a saviour for them because it can carry three 737s passengers at once, specially in peak season like Eid holiday and Year's end.

    But the first reason Lion Air have this thing is to be chartered by Indonesian government to carry Hajj pilgrims. It's a big business in the country with the biggest Muslim population in the world.

    Hmm. I guess the hajj and being a replacement plane makes sense.  There is not much information about this plane's config but if they use it for hajj I would assume its all economy.
