BOOKING

We booked our flight as part of a multi-city itinerary that included the following flights:

It was a bit bizarre that we were flying Vietnam Airlines to begin with as we booked our ticket via United Airlines, a Star Alliance member, and Vietnam Airlines is a member of SkyTeam. I’m actually not sure why this was even a choice on the United website.

CHECK-IN

We made it to the airport about 2 hours before our scheduled departure and quickly found the check-in lanes assigned to our flight.

Off to Check-In row L!

Image
Never a dull moment at BKK!

Image

Image
They even had a representative waiting to greet us, although she lacked personality and kept staring at us

We made our way to the Economy Class check-in lanes with all the other peasants:

After checking in and clearing security, we wandered to the nearest Priority Pass eligible lounge.

Image

Image

We settled on the Louis’ Tavern CIP Lounge in Concourse G.

Image

The Bangkok-BKK airport is pretty awesome, some of the levels, like Level 2 and 3 looked somewhat dated but it’s clear that they just dumped a ton of money into the 4th level and have it looking world class.

Plenty of Thai themed art in the airport

BOARDING

After relaxing in the lounge, we proceeded to our gate: F3.

Image

Image

Tickets were checked and we found a seat.

Image

Image

After a few minutes, boarding was announced and we scurried to the plane.

SEAT

We passed by the Business Class section and made our way to our seats near the back.

The first thing we were struck by is how dated the plane seemed, there certainly wasn’t going to be any fancy new in-flight entertainment equipment here today.

Image
Seating was 3×3 and we had 36E and 36G


As boarding continued, the plane ended up being nearly full.

MEAL SERVICE

After taking off, meal service began and “dinner” was served. It really ended up being a small snack and was all around decent given that they had less than 1.5 hours to serve ~175 people.

Image

The meal consisted of salami and other cold cuts with pasta salad, olives and a small salad with dressing. There was also fresh cut fruit pineapple and watermelon and a warm-ish dinner roll with unsalted butter.

Image

For a drink, I tried the Bia Hà Nôi which was all around pretty tasteless and probably the worst I’d sampled in the past few weeks visiting Myanmar and Thailand.

Image

Image

The flight was uneventful and we reached our destination in no time.

Landing on runway 07R at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Once we landed in Ho Chi Minh, we queued up in the Visa line, hoping that the visa we applied for online was actually legit!

I think you took your trip 2 or 3 years ago when Vietnam airlines attendants even wore old style uniform with red colour. They changed to yellow and light blue since 2015, as well as improve their service to 4 stars airlines already.
Next time, you should give more information when posting something.
