Pros: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Pros: "Plane is good"
Cons: "Delay 2x poor"
Pros: "Because of my Platinum status with Delta the gate agent changed our seats to more legroom in exit row"
Cons: "We’re used to entertainment in seat like delta"
Pros: "Reasonable price and not complicated"
Cons: "Cabin atmosphere, our seated very hot because air conditioning wasn't cold from Osaka until Hanoi even we have informed few staffs but nothing change."
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful and the business class seats were very spacious and comfortable."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Short flight, very efficient"
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"
Pros: "Food was the only good part"
Cons: "The crew was rude, no blankets, no entertainment. Overall was not good"
Cons: "Slow check-in not very comfortable seats and food was awful."
Pros: "The flights left and arrived on time."
Cons: "When connecting from a domestic flight to an international flight in Hanoi they do not check your bags to the final destination. They also do not inform you that you have to change terminals when arriving in Hanoi. I barely made the connection because of these two issues."
Cons: "More chairs at boarding gate in Bangkok, please"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "There were passengers clapping through the whole flight."
Pros: "The entire flight was pleasurable. The crew was outstanding."
Cons: "Apparently the records showed that credit card used did not match with the actual card used. I used my Kayak account to book 7 tickets. My friend used his credit card to pay for all 7 tickets. The records showed that my wife’s credit card was used when in fact my friend’s card was charged."
Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfortable. For airline food, it was actually pretty tasty. The in-flight entertainment was very good. I wish Vietnam Air was available in the States!"
Cons: "Was denied entrance fir my wife to the lounge even having two passes both in my name. Was given one in Da Nang however lounge not open at 4:30 AM. My wife was traveling economy I was in business. Nasty reception at the Vietnam Air lounge in Hanoi. The other lounge great not affiliated with Vietnam."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "I was harassed by the crew members, starring at my passport and taking pictures of them, and doing more question than a migration officer. I’m leaving in Japan, and my Honduras passport do not requires a visa to enter to Japan and they were keeping taking picture to my whole passport. Shame on them."
Cons: "They changed the time without notice and wouldn’t even accept checked baggage."
Pros: "Our flight was actually through Vietnam Airlines. The confusion of having two different flight numbers caused some Trouble about what terminal to go to in Seoul and we almost missed our flight."
Cons: "Better info on what the flight number is. More info that is airport specific."
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "Not much entertainment available."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the flight was great."
Cons: "My Kayak account was opened in the US years ago. Google and Gmail are blocked in Mainland China. So if I book hotels or flights any updates or ticket information is sent to my Gmail account which I can never see I realize that too late and tried to notify you but you never answered back I realize that too late and tried to notify you but you never answered back. I feel I cannot use Kayak in China anymore."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "No vegeterian meal (all options include meat); the staff spoke English poorly; no media system; pretty old airplane"
Cons: "The choice of English language films were limited. I did not enjoy the food too much"
Cons: "It was super hot before and after the flight took off. Felt like tha AC of the airplane was broken. Other passengers and I had to use magazines, safety info leaflet to fan off the heat."
Pros: "I can choose the seat"
Cons: "Boarding no advert, rush disorganized and unfair personal at the gate. In the plane no smiling, but i understand during the trip why. The staff got problem with the Vietnamese people who do not respect and listen the rules. Its really hard for them to work ."
Pros: "Flight was generally ok."
Cons: "No power or USB ports."
Cons: "Hygiene of local passengers"
Cons: "The plane was late in boarding, and even later in arrival. We were given no explanation, only an apology. And it turns out worse, because apparently we had been shifted to a plane that was going to continue into Laos, so the plane came in at the International Arrivals Section and we had to take a bus from there to get our luggage in the Domestic Arrivals Hall. Making it all even later. No food offered for this quite expensive flight, only water, and no entertainment either."
Pros: "A modern aircraft - the Boeing Dreamliner with plenty of legroom in economy."
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: "The schedule on time"
Cons: "Entertainment system wasn't switched on immediately after take off and safety demos"
Pros: "Legroom, comfortable seats, window darkening technology allowed quite a bit of sleep on board."
Cons: "Computer changed our Premium Economy seat allocation, separating us but not told until boarding. Then it was a hassle while they rearranged other people on board and tried to tell us it was caused by us checking in late whereas we'd been among the first."
Pros: "The crew was really polite, nice and helpful, a good change for someone that uses Chinese airlines"
Cons: "The food was really dreadful and I am used to the Chinese airlines standards so the bar is really low. Beef or pork as options, the meat was really bad"
Pros: "On time, clean, nice staff."
Pros: "Good weather and a quick smooth flight"
Cons: "They kept shutting the lights off. The plane was very hot when we first boarded. In the air the air conditioner slowly began to cool off the plane."
Cons: "Sell me ticket hat no use. 17 hours layover while Japan not allow overnight layover and kick me out . I have to spend 1700 more to get another ticket to go us for school! I demand my money back"
Pros: "Priority boarding for pregnant passengers, leggy and clean"
Cons: "No personal service, meaning have to fill out the same waiver of liability every time we fly, even if flights are just a few days apart."
Cons: "They charged for overweight luggage; Vietnam was the only country to do this."
Pros: "Great experience. Everyone very helpful."
Pros: "Happy to use this airline everytime I'm in Vietnam or Laos. Very comfortable flight with good room."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike about this flight"
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."
Pros: "For flying overseas the airplane was old and uncomfortable. I've flown overseas before and the seats have been a lot more comfy. The crew was fantastic and the food just crappy like any plane food."
Cons: "The seats and the food."
Cons: "There was no luggage requirment on my flight plan. I thought that it was 32 kg since it was international flight. At the counter I wad told I am over 20 kg allowed on that flight since this fligh was code shared with Vietnam Airlines but operated by Cambodia Angkor Airlines. After manager intervention my suitcase was accepted. I would appreciate clear communication about allowed suitcade weight on code shared flights."
Pros: "Flight schedule on time"
Cons: "Very little leg room. Claustrophobic with high seats blocking any view of windows. Food was basic with stale bread. Person in front had seat reclined for the whole trip even though she was reading. Also down during lunch. Infuriating."
Pros: "The rolls were warm. That is literally the only positive thing I have to say."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled, which I wasn't alerted to until after I arrived at the airport. They booked me on another one leaving 2 hours later, which was delayed by about another 5 hours. I suppose it was the weather, but a flight going to the same destination on the same airline managed to take off on time, and it was supposed to be leaving 40 minutes after my second flight. I have a hard time believing it was the weather, but who knows? There were absolutely zero gatw agents there to offer any helpful information. They eventually gave us food vouchers, but it was about 5 minutes after 90 percent of the applicable restaurants closed. Everyone on the flight was forced to eat at dairy queen, which quickly ran out of everything anyone wanted. I will never fly Vietnam Airlines again."
Cons: "I received at least 4 emails from Vietnam Airlines prior to my visit informing me of changes in our booking. All added time to our layover in either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh on our return. Once we arrived in Hanoi we were informed of 2 more delays in our departure. I am traveling alone with 3 children all under 12 yrs &I make a concerted effort to book flight with the shortest layover possible. What would have been a 10hr door to door travel time turned into 16 hrs. Needless to say, I will not fly Vietnam Airlines by choice again."
Pros: "Worst Airline Ever"
Cons: "Vietjet needs to update their refund policy"
Cons: "We left 1. 5 hours late! The only food on the plane was prepackaged chemical foods and the only vegan option was a porridge they pour water over ($2)."
Cons: "Get more Customer Services training for the better and for the next level of international services provider...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed - be on time"
Cons: "Avoid at all costs. Delayed both ways. On the way out of Danang they would not even tell us what time the flight would be departing despite numerous passengers asking. On the flight, a crew member stepped on my foot with her heel. My foot was NOT in the aisle, she has stepped in to get past a colleague. She didn’t even stop to apologize. Her colleague apologized and said I’ll get you a glass of water. She returned after a good 30 minutes with a paper cup of water. There was no enquiring how I was or if I needed anything. Will NEVER fly them again!"
Pros: "The food is good. Air crew is nice."
Cons: "Worth for money we paid"
Pros: "Vietjet’s staff are always attractive, smiling, and friendly. I like the double embarking and disembarking process."
Cons: "I hate Vietjet’s restrictive luggage policies. I had to repack everything at the ticket counter to match the 7 kilo restriction and one carryon limit. On every other airline the way I pack is acceptable. Then I was given a window seat with no window. It was in the exit row. Terrible!"
Cons: "Boarding on time instead of delay twice"
Cons: "should be on time"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, comfortable seats and the airline seemed well run for a discount carrier."
Cons: "Getting to and from the plane, they use a bus and only had one bus so we was packed in like cattle on a truck"
Cons: "Airport reception is inexperience, could provide us the info we need. Luggage charging 2 for 70kg which is retarded. If you pay online or declare online it gives you discount, unfortunately that doesn’t work on visitors. The check innprocuedure was ineffective and waste lots of time"
Pros: "Fast and efficient and low cost budget"
Cons: "No free water on a 5 hour flight. Poor choice of snacks to purchase. No leg room. Chaotic at boarding time. Expensive for the service"
Pros: "It was on time for a change"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. We requested 2 aisle seats. Given the ok, and then found out we were seated window and middle. How did that get lost in translation?"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phuket"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours, then didn't board for another 45 minutes after that. We were given a mediocre coffee or soft drink in a lounge, no food. Basically the afternoon at Patong was wasted because we didn't arrive until after 5pm. Vietjet is renowned for this sloppiness and persistent delays."
Cons: "Delays with no explanation or expected timing"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "It was a quick flight from dalat to hmc. So I didn't expect a lot. But they charged for water and there were no tv's."
Cons: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Cons: "No online check-in. Flight was late. No legroom."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour and a half without any information as to why. Major grievance was baggage policy. My wife and I have been traveling Asia for the last 7+ month and taken 35 flights to 10 different countries. This is the ONLY time we were told we needed to check our bags (which are both soft-sided and weight ~7kg). Apparently our small backpacks also counted toward the carry-on limit, which would have been fine if not for the following two contradictions: this was our THIRD flight with VietJet Air (one from Siem Reap to Hanoi, Hanoi to Da Nang, Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh) and we didn't have to check baggage the first two. We also saw at least half a dozen people get on our flight with either bags larger than ours, or carrying three pieces of luggage. Either enforce all the rules for everyone, every time they fly the airline, or not at all."
Pros: "Good pilot and crew, comfortable seats because we were given the ones right behind the exit row seats with some leg room."
Cons: "Our original flight time was delayed the first time, and then it got delayed AGAIN about 45 minutes after we got to the airport!"
Cons: "Took 2 flights with this airline and both flights were delayed! Will never fly with this airline again!!!"
Pros: "Was on time and cheap."
Cons: "I received a text saying the departure time was delayed 5 hours but that was not true. Don't know where or why the text."
Pros: "The plane got me to my destination"
Cons: "1) I had to check in my bag (which in any other fight I took was a carry on) 2) I booked thru kayak via kiwi and it was impossible to make a change even though I requested the change 1 min after my booking (I called and emailed them several times without success) 3) there was a delay in the gate and we were not kept up to date"
Pros: "Relatively cheap but you get what you pay for."
Cons: "They are super strict with the luggage, and you have to go through multiple steps. Operations are poor. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "I waited 30 minutes in one line just to ask a question about luggage weight. A staff member told me to switch to another line next to me. I asked her three times if she was sure I should change lines. She insisted I move, only to wait in another line for 20 more minutes! There WAS NO ONE WORKING AT THE COUNTER! I found her again and she told me to switch. To another long line next to me and I had enough. I had to yell at her and make it clear that I was not going to wait another minute. I said I am going to the front and I’ll be next. I asked my ONE question about weight. It took 15 seconds and she should have handled it for me from the start."
Cons: "Staff that doesn’t listen and just points to a line when she demonstrated that she speaks some English. Don’t treat foreigners like idiots. They are generally very smart and have a valid question. Learn to LISTEN to your customers. A customer complaint is a gift. It’s up to you what you do with it."
Cons: "No guide telling where to find Vietjet ticket counter for check in. I missed my flight and slept on the floor. No follow up and I had to book with Vietnam Airlines with no refund or voucher. I'll only fly Vietnam Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Nothing too special to say here. One nice thing was that the lady that checked us in let us carry-on our overweight bags."
Cons: "I wish they had in-flight entertainment, but it's not that big of a deal."
Pros: "Cheap flights but u get what u pay for"
Cons: "2 delays of 10hrs"
Cons: "Attendants gave the first three rows drinks, but didn't give the rest of the passengers anything."
Cons: "This airline was impossible to get in touch with. THey we're not at all accommodating to my request to change the flight time and sleazily rip you off with what is written in the small print."
Pros: "Good value, and the planes were on time (We took a couple of VietJet flights). Staff was courteous and friendly.Inexpensive! Free bag."
Cons: "Somewhat arbitrary rules about how much your carry on can weigh. I don't really get why this makes much of a difference anyway, as the bag will be on the plane anyway."
Cons: "I am an average height United States male; never have I been so restricted by seat space."
Cons: "Really annoying to have to pay excess luggage fee when starting a long journey, being allowed only 15k and the first thing that happens is that You have to leave Your check in country to go and pay for having 3kg extra. Badly earned money spent all time in line hating the airline for this stupidity - 20 kg's is a very normal allowance - get back to standard!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Bus instead of ramp boarding. No food or drinks provided. The carts raced by us and did not stop to ask if we wanted a purchase. No leg room in seats."
Cons: "Have an error in system. I can't join the flight"
Pros: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
Pros: "Schedule and price were reasonable."
Cons: "Extremely noisy announcements, much louder than necessary. Poor boarding information. Incorrect gate info and poor messaging."
Pros: "Cheap fares"
Cons: "Late. Terrible boarding process, agents showed up 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time, and then put a final boarding call on the message board everyone had a lineup in a long line and no rows called just first come first serve. Male flight attendants were rude."
Pros: "Staff onboard friendly"
Cons: "Flight check very slow"
Cons: "Booked a midday flight directly with VietJet only to find the flight no longer was flying that day. We had been up onto a completely different flight, 4.5 hours later, with no communication whatsoever. We had paid extra for certain seats, And we're told during checkin these were given away. Thankfully they gave us the seats 1 row in front of what we'd booked. They should really tell passengers about flights, as this could have caused a lot of issues if choosing connecting flights. We were lucky to be able to rearrange our pick up."
Pros: "Fluent English, comfortable and ample seat space"
Cons: "2 things: 1) I've traveled dozens of airlines with the same carryon backpack. The ticket agent required me to weigh my bag and since it was greater than 7kg said I'd have to check it. 2) Flight crew was running late which is entirely understandable. BUT rather than let the 200+ passengers know what was happening the gate agents said nothing."
Pros: "Doing its job to fly you on time with good schedule. For less than 1 hour flight that's all you need"
Cons: "It was delayed over 1 hour. it was many times since i've used."
Pros: "We were very pleased with VietJet Air. Check in went smoothly. Our bags arrived quickly after landing. Good start for the next leg of our journey."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Just 20 minutes late"
