Cons: "Having announcements in the lounge or a better choice of beverages on board would be great....also surprised there were zero reading materials available in business class"
Pros: "Check in was good"
Cons: "Food. Don’t serve anything if it is going to be that bad. And offer beverages"
Pros: "Check in was efficient. I like that they have generous carry on policy. No checked bag fees. Boarding was quick and easy."
Pros: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Pros: "Plane is good"
Cons: "Delay 2x poor"
Cons: "On-time departure"
Pros: "Food was the only good part"
Cons: "The crew was rude, no blankets, no entertainment. Overall was not good"
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."
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."
Cons: "Lounge access for my wife traveling in economy I was in business. Had two passes both in my name got a rude and unprofessional greeting by Vietnam Air staff. This in its self will make my reason to fly Vietnam Airlines the last choice."
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."
Pros: "The check-in staff realised we hadn't allowed enough time to transit in Ho Chi Minh city, so they seated us close to the front and put business class tags on our luggage. They were the first on to the carousel."
Cons: "Every one of our legs was delayed, which contributed to tight transit times."
Cons: "They changed the time without notice and wouldn’t even accept checked baggage."
Pros: "It was okay, really overpriced for what would have been a fine low-budget flight, like an Air Asia. If I had paid $200 or less for the flight, I would have no complaints about the comfort and service. But I paid over $600, so I'd expect a little more."
Cons: "Seat comfort, food, entertainment, boarding, disembarking."
Pros: "Efficient and on time"
Cons: "Aircraft seats worn out"
Pros: "The crew were great."
Cons: "Not much entertainment available."
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: "Short flight"
Cons: "The airport is about 40 km away from Nha Trang"
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: "Flight was generally ok."
Cons: "No power or USB ports."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for one hour."
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: "Reasonably well organised Nice veg meal Attentive pleasant staff"
Cons: "Drinks: they had limited juice range, prob only orange and for some strange eason didnt serve hot drinks"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly staff"
Cons: "No TVs in each seat"
Pros: "Great service and very caring"
Cons: "Not fare"
Cons: "Change without prior notice"
Cons: "Uncomfortable airplane."
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 very attentive and nice"
Cons: "The seats are very close together. It's hard to get comfortable"
Pros: "On time, clean, nice staff."
Pros: "service was great"
Cons: "Plane is a bit old"
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: "Comfortable seats, but that was about it. Just ok."
Cons: "This was only a short flight 1.5 hours, but only provided water, unlike Thai airways which provided a meal."
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."
Pros: "The leg room is one of the best in economy class. At six feet tall, I was able to stretch my legs and not have my knees against the seat in front of us. The personal entertainment console worked perfectly with clear picture and sound, though the free headphones were uncomfortable. Boarding crew allowed us to cut in line since we had a 2 year old. Very appreciative for that, and appreciative for their sternness with those customers who were trying to slip in in front of us."
Cons: "Crew on board came across as a little unfriendly, though professional seriousness might have been mistaken as annoyance. The food was passable, but definitely not quality. Sufficient amount of beverage was served."
Cons: "They charged for overweight luggage; Vietnam was the only country to do this."
Cons: "The boarding is disorganized and confused that passengers are pushing each other in a bit of chaotic! Need lot of improvements."
Pros: "Crew on board was responsive and really helpful with regard of needs of passengers. Food tastes really good. Decent amount of leg room, considering it's economy class."
Cons: "We had a flight at 11am in korea with vietnam airlines heading back to Singapore. We had to queue an hour and a half for our boarding pass and check in, which makes it unbelievable how is that possible. We were there early since 815am, and only got our boarding around 10am. We nearly missed our flight as there were queue all around for security check. I guess this is the first and the last time i will travel with Vietnam Airlines."
Pros: "it was a short trip"
Cons: "plane was old and had an unpleasant odor"
Pros: "Great experience. Everyone very helpful."
Pros: "Airline was able to move us to an earlier flight after we arrived early! Thank you so much Vietnan Airlines!"
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: "Ease of travel was fantastic"
Pros: "Very professional and very clean planes."
Pros: "fast meal service after take-off"
Cons: "seafood pasta was only noodles & clams."
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: "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: "Crew was average, need to brush up on geography. One crew member announced that we have arrived to the city of Quang Nam, instead of province of Quang Nam."
Cons: "Take off on time, not 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Clean plane"
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: "should be on time"
Cons: "I was charged for a medical device (CPAP) to carry it onboard the plane. Never had to pay before on any flight as FAA permits medical devices for free."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful, comfortable seats and the airline seemed well run for a discount carrier."
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"
Pros: "Nothing really impressive."
Cons: "The online boarding procedures was unavailable for non- Vietnamese. No reminder to tell us which terminal and cause me delayed to the flight, the airport reception was inexperience send me to a wrong terminal. Luggage charging was bad. If you declare online gives you half price and it doesn’t work"
Cons: "Customer service. Not helpful at all. They were more interested in getting rid of us. There was a man in a wheelchair who injured his leg in a bike accident. He needed to get to Vietnam for medical help. They told him they couldn’t accommodate him. They also refused to give helpful. They just left him. Your airline is run by heartless people. I would never recommend Viet jet to my worst enemy"
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"
Cons: "Delays with no explanation or expected timing"
Cons: "Baggage policy ridiculous. I was prepared bc I’d heard about the 7g rule but still had me running around almost missing the flight to pay the fee at a different location than the check in desk. The other location had staff on a break. Then no one else at the check in wanted to accept payment so that I could move on to boarding. Staff not friendly about the whole process."
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."
Cons: "Took 2 flights with this airline and both flights were delayed! Will never fly with this airline again!!!"
Cons: "My flight was from Bangkok to Busan, via Hanoi. I was planning to transfer at Hanoi, but Vietjet did not offer transit service. I had to pass immigration (exit the country), then reenter. Luckily Korean citizens can enter Vietnam without visa; otherwise, I would have lost my luggage. Terrible service."
Pros: "It was exactly what we needed. On time flight with few frills but good price and efficient. No complaints at all. Crew did well keeping control of passengers that kept standing while seatbelt sign was on. Firm but not angry. Good job."
Pros: "Uneventful flight. Nothing worth writing home about. No food, no entertainment, no hassle either."
Cons: "VietJet Air has the habit of not announcing delays until after departure time. It was funny to see the billboards announcing: "On time", then "Boarding" when there was no aircraft in sight. On the Arrivals billboard, it showed the in-coming flight as "Landed", when it most obviously had not landed, and there was no information about when it might eventually arrive. With slow operations, we boarded 40 minutes mate and arrived a full hour late. The schedule had been 9:00 PM; days before flying it was pushed back to 10:00 PM. We actually were at the gate at 11:00 PM. VietJet Air is unfortunately the only airline operating a late flight from Pleiku to Ho Chi Minh. No competition means no pressure to be on time."
Pros: "Flights were on time and worked well for us. Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "The charges for each checked bag were annoying. We are a family of three and traveling with a 26 Kg kid but paying full price for our seats. With one checked bag the additional 4 Kg in the bag resulting in an upcharge seems foolish. Other passengers weighing 4 times as much pay the same ticket price as our smaller lighter weigh child."
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."
Pros: "Provide 30kg of luggage allowance and at least a clear method for prepurchasing luggage allowance in your website"
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: "I don't like how the lineup was at check in. You go the counter to check in. Then go to another counter to limeuo again to pay for your bags. Then lineup again for checking in. Very frustrating and confusing. Flight was almost three hours delayed and they refused to change to earlier flight. Service was poor and staff spoke very limited English. Will try to avoid this airline in future. Not a great first time experience."
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: "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: "Airlineseriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours seriously delayed… Triples an hour duration flight… Delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Caroline is wonderful once the plane is able to get into the air"
Cons: "many delays, no associates anywhere in the terminal to address any issues even though they say repeatedly to see an agent if you have questions, horrible airline that does not deliver the service that is paid for"
Cons: "I was on an International flights, 3.5 hours. Their website didn't mention any additional fees for check-in luggage, I didn't expect that as most airlines don't charge extra fees on international routes, how surprised was I when at the check-in counter I was ask to pay $36 for my 10kg backpack. I feel I was scammed."
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"
Cons: "There is no entertainment in flight and baggage check in is an issue ."
Pros: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
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"
Pros: "Check in and boarding processes were actually ok this time! Decent timeliness and decent comfort level on flight."
Cons: "I understand that a budget flight will sell food and drink for money, but I feel it would be common courtesy if they at least provided water free of charge if a client asked."
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: "Doing its job to fly you on time with good schedule. For less than 1 hour flight that's all you need"
Cons: "#Delayed for about three-quarters of an hour. #Cramped seating. #Coffee unpleasant. #Male crew abrupt."
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"
