Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Was given lounge access, quick easy boarding, very organized."
Cons: "Ruined flight due to excessive baggage charge which is clearly just stealing from customer at check in... 1800 bhat for one small case! Never again with Vietnam Air"
Cons: "Got me there, no worries."
Cons: "More chairs at boarding gate in Bangkok, please"
Pros: "Nuce crew and gentleness"
Cons: "Entertainment but we know it’s a plane restriction"
Cons: "Leg room is short, seats are average. Fine for a short flight."
Cons: "Reservation online"
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Everything was up to part"
Cons: "Delayed with no announcements or explanation."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. The flight was not over booked/ loaded and therefore much more comfortable."
Pros: "Attentive crew. Good communication. On time."
Cons: "At boarding, crew didn't allow me my preference for a front seat, and gave an excuse that it's chosen random. He booked both my seats at tge tail of the taxi whereas I requested front seat. In flight, I wasn't asked for my meal preference. They served me pork, whereas I eat a Hindu meal (No Beef and No Pork) They served the end part so late that by the time I could eat they were already descending, and they rushed me to eat. I couldn't eat it anyways except the fruits. No juice or water either was served."
Pros: "Their boarding process was smooth. The cabin crew was attentive. The plane wasn’t full and there were three of us sitting together that were rather large. The crew allowed us to go to an empty seat without someone next to it."
Cons: "The flight had small video screens but no place to plug in a headset so consequently o sound."
Pros: "Don't expect to be ontime, or have announcements when there is a gate change. Airport employees are more annoyed that you are visiting then what you would expect. Air doesn't run on the plane until your 10k up. HOWEVER, we got there safely and my bag showed up so all in all its fine."
Pros: "The people at the counter helped me and were great"
Pros: "Very quick procedures! Check in, boarding, disembarking"
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable"
Pros: "Onboarding went well and bagage was out fast in Nha Prang"
Cons: "Seats at Vietnam Airlines are hard and old. Do not sit well so would not take a long flight with them despite that the crew is very professional."
Pros: "I only fly Vietnam airlines within Vietnam."
Pros: "The guy who sat beside me was flying with a baby. The flight attendants were attentive to the needs of the baby, especially safety-wise."
Cons: "Boarding is very unorganized, and takes so much time. They could probably improve by assigning certain rows to use the front/rear door of the aircraft. For example: rows 1-15 use the front door, and 16-30 use the rear door. That way there’re not too much congestion and waiting on the aisle."
Pros: "We left late but arrived safely and close to being on time."
Cons: "Taking the bus to the plane is a nuisance."
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Pros: "Seats in economy was exceprionally wide. For short flight they actually served a meal. Flight attendants were friendly and coutrous."
Cons: "Seats didn’t have monitors. Instaed had “old fashioned” overhead monitor. Wasn’t that portant since flight was only 1.5hurs long."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "No TVs in each seat"
Pros: "The Premium Economy section is relatively small, and quiet. At check-in, I was attributed a window seat, and the section was fully packed. The company went out of its way to give me an aisle seat. A window seat would have resulted in a badly hurting elbow. The seats in Economy Premium are OK, nice pitch and width : 2+4+2, instead of 3+3+3 in Economy."
Cons: "The seats in Economy Premium have a foot-rest, that is badly designed and badly kept. Nothing to do with the kind they have in Business class. Push the button, it will spring up. This is OK for short people with short legs, like average Vietnamese customers. It is a pain for taller people with longer legs. It takes a lot of strength to push the footrest into its former position. In my seat, two attendants came to my help and could not do it. Something apparently was broken. I spent 13 miserable hours without being able to find a comfortable position for my legs. I strongly suggest to Vietnam Airlines get rid of the footrests altogether, or find an easy-to-manage model."
Pros: "Good boarding process, punctual,great cabin service"
Cons: "Baggage arrival"
Cons: "Only two check-in counters were available. The waiting time for check in was, therefore, quite long, and the time was very tight until the boarding. The seat allocation was horrible, and I was surrounded by nasty neighbors, who were chatting throughout the 10+hour flight, even after my verbal warning, not to mention the way children were taken care of. I am not blaming children making noise. I am blaming the lack of control over the parents who bring noisy toys for children and play videos loud enough to disturb the neighbor's sleep throughout the flight."
Pros: "They didn't try to charge me for checking in 1 piece of luggage.....unlike Air Asia.....will definitely use again"
Pros: "The evening meal was far better than the mystery cold cuts and drowned slaw on the daytime flight out of Hanoi. Crew were pro -- if a little terse at times. Pilot launched and landed the aircraft successfully, always a big plus in my books."
Cons: "Seat was hard and somewhat uncomfortable. I wanted bottomless refills of white wine but the stewardesses had other ideas. Pours were on the skimpy side, too. Passengers were fiddling with their damned devices during takeoff and landing, and the crew shoulda laid down the law there."
Cons: "We could not check in on line . Why? This reason made us have to waited in the long line"
Pros: "As a Delta Platinum member we got to us the Lotus Lounge, which was very nice."
Cons: "Some friendly smiles from the ground crew would have made our trip a bit better"
Pros: "Airplane food is usually drab & this fish in chili sauce was really tasty. Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Miss channels fir tv or music or movies. No wi-fi"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "plane a little old"
Pros: "The flight on an A350 wide body was uneventful. I was in the "Premium Economy" section, which is sold as regular "Economy" for domestic flights. Excellent seating 2+4+2. The food was OK, not much to write home about, but they skipped coffee and tea because of turbulence (hardly perceptible)."
Cons: "Boarding process in HAN was very confusing: there was a change of gate announcement just when boarding was to start. Everybody went like crazy through the airport terminal looking for a Gate that does not exist. Followed by a counter-announcement. And then being bussed to the aircraft. People came on board up to the last minute... Arrival in SGN crazy for a different reason. All 300-some passengers were bussed again. Just that the ladders were not ready, and then whoever drove could not adjust them, and then the busses were not ready either. 25 minutes from landing to the luggage belts. Vietnamese airports need to work on their their procedures."
Pros: "On time, lunch served, no problems."
Cons: "No entertainment, but a very short flight, one hour, who cares?"
Cons: "Not sure whether it's MEL airport or VN airline. Priority luggage for business class passengers were the last to come off the belt - more than one hour after arrival, and after all the regular baggage was offloaded."
Pros: "The food was very good. Service was quick and efficient. Drinks offering was generous.Plane was new airbus and Facilities were better than expected."
Cons: "Choice of entertainment on the long leg should be extended and should be changed regularly not just monthly. This is a general criticism to all airlines too."
Pros: "Ground and air staff were pleasant and helpful"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight"
Cons: "seats seem "cheap" plastic. They crackle as you move in them and don't seem to be a very high quality."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:15 pm. We decided to grab a quick bite to eat before boarding. Our boarding pass indicated that boarding would begin at 6:45. They called "final boarding" at 6:35, just as we were wrapping up. I believe we were the last to board at about 6:35 or 6:40. Once we were on board the plane pulled away and departed a full half-hour before schedule. The early departure was welcome, but unexpected and made us feel more rushed than necessary without prior notice."
Cons: "One hour flight was almost 5 hours long."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled for 3:30. At about 3:15pm they announced the flight was canceled due to a mystery mechanical issue and they re booked everyone on to the 6:10pm flight, which miraculously had enough empty seats to accommodate everyone. The 6:10 flight left about 15 minutes late, and still had plenty of empty seats."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Very attentive to handicapped passengers. Which is me. Yhe flight is short yet they served a light lunch we seemed like a waste to. I had a coke. The plane was clean I love the hostess uniforms. Beautiful and very feminine. Refreshing in today's world"
Cons: "For a short hop I have nothing to suggest. Perfect"
Pros: "All services are better than before a lot"
Pros: "Did not have food so can't commen. This airline reminds me of Cathay pacific I really liked it. I have down Vietnam airlines several times Good English and on time. They know how to deal with people in wheelchair. I will fly every time I can"
Pros: "New airplane 787 Dreamliner"
Cons: "Dirty carpet, limited film and entertainment"
Pros: "Flight on time. Food OK."
Pros: "Crew on the planes were nice (though the people at the check-in desk were a little less so)"
Cons: "No vegetarian food options (besides not offering a regular option, as many airlines do now, even after I requested a vegetarian meal, there was none). They even told me I couldn't have more than one green salad because "only one per person." Thanks! In addition, the planes were old. Business was not nearly as comfortable as some other airlines. The entertainment was very bad -- the longer flight had very little Western, Korean, or Japanese entertainment. The shorter flight (Even in business class) had no personal entertainment at all! Will not fly with Vietnam again..."
