JAKARTADAILY.ID – Indonesian internet users swiftly roasted Batik Airlines after President Joko Widodo's youngest son, Kaesang Pangarep, tweeted about him and his luggage landing in two separate locations. 

"Hooray, I took Batik Air to Surabaya and my baggage arrived safely at Kualanamu airport (in Medan), thank you, Batik Air," wrote Kaesang sarcastically on Twitter.

Shortly upon arriving at Juanda Airport in Surabaya, East Java, he discovered that his luggage had strayed to Kualanamu Airport, in Medan, North Sumatra

After he made the snarky comment on his official Twitter account @kaesangp, #BatikAir quickly became a trending topic on the social media platform. 

Indonesian Twitter users quickly jumped on the bandwagon to roast Batik Airlines, owned by the Lion Group, with some ironically defending the airline. 

"This is a good example from Batik Air, it doesn't discriminate whether they're the president's son or anyone, everyone is treated equally," wrote the Twitter account owner @initialyudhi.

A user with the handle @Arni_Girsang mentioned that an Indonesian rockstar and songwriter Ari Lasso experienced a similar mishap when he flew with the airline not too long ago.

"This airline is indeed problematic ... Yesterday it was Ari Lasso, today the President's son," said @Arni_Girsang.

"It's really cool how Batik Air leveled from celebrities directly to the president's son," wrote a user called @kimchithj.

One user by the name of @Stella_dion went against the grain to genuinely defend the airline and instead blamed the airport for the incident.

"Actually, this matter is not handled by the airline, but (by) the airport. Even if it's Singapore Airlines, airplanes that land at X, and passengers at Y also often happen. It depends on which airport checks in your baggage. Transit airports are also responsible," said the account.
