    Yes, you should use 'saya' when speaking to them. 'Aku' is kinda an informal language. Generally we'll use 'Aku' when speaking to our close friends. :)

    ' Saya' is bahasa baku..means standard language...so it is polite...( it's same with Bahasa Indonesia ) ..so you can use ' saya ' for that...
    'Aku' is used in the Indonesian language in informal situations...

    yes, saya is more polite than aku, saya is more formal, but if aku, sometimes it is used when we talk in informal situation
