The entertainment selection was great, boarding process was smooth. However, the staff were so rude, my tray table was broken so had drinks split on me. I had a child coughing on me and kicking me in her sleep. The person in front of me put his seat down so far that my knees were against the seat (I’m only 5’9). The person behind me used her tray table to sleep so I couldn’t put my seat back. She woke up for breakfast, by which point I wanted sleep so I put my seat back and she complained about it so I had to put the seat upright again!

Cons: "Food wasn't overly great."
Cons: "The seats are a little tight and I paid for a bit of a larger seat. Next time I will upgrade for more room."
Cons: "This company í overrated. Obvious lack of organization in the boarding process that led to a late departure. Not a sympathetic crew, which had to be reminded the protocols (upright seats before take off) while being inflexible on other things. Chaotic food service. Average entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The people sitting near me were crazy and it was an uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Lots of new movies"
Cons: "Flight was 1 hr delay and we missed our connection flight. That was the most frustrating from the trip. Crew and aircraft was okay nothing special like I expected."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and efficiently carried out, considering there were hundreds of passengers"
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for a variety of reasons and sat in the plane for 2 hours before taking off. That was difficult for everyone."

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Pros: "The flight on the A3800 was great."
Pros: "It wasn’t a full flight."
Cons: "The crew were too busy in their own world and attention during service was poor."
Pros: "The stewardess were friendly enough. When the cabin got chilly I received another blanket. The complimentary beverages was nice. No chips though. The individual tv screen was a plus."
Cons: "Seat was not very comfortable. I couldn’t recline it back all the way to sleep. I was very dry and did not realize that there was water in the galley that I could have helped myself to. Not enough leg room for tall people like me without having to purchase it."
Pros: "Clean cabin, polite Attendants, fast internet and great food and drinks."
Cons: "None at all"
Pros: "Crew is always helpful and friendly. Riding in economy is never very comfortable. Love the little chocolates handed out toward end of flight."
Cons: "Food is boring and repetitive. Current movie selections and TV shows were mostly uninteresting."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment and the cabin crew is very welcomjng and nice smaile on their faces."
Cons: "The leg room for tall guys isrediculous and if i had to get more leroom even in international flights they r charging. Ive not bren charged in domestic flights till now for leg room. And the food shoydl be changed and please give sime yhing more filling."
Pros: "The staff were pleasant and the food was passable"
Cons: "The number of children screaming and running up and down the aisles was ridiculous. Since parents can’t be trusted to stop their darlings from raising hell, the flight attendants need to. The poor old guy next to me looked like he might die from exhaustion after this long-haul hell. In other news, rushing us into the bus and then leaving us standing there for 30 minutes is not my idea of a good start to the journey."
Pros: "Service from staff"
Cons: "Disembarking for passengers needing wheelchair was prolonged and cumbersome; As a result,my one suitcase was lost by another passenger picking up my bag and I ended up spending 3 extra hours at the airport completing formalities!"
Pros: "customercare was good. Thank you."
Cons: "No Leg room Bad food Delayed flight"
Pros: "The comfort of the flight was unbeatable. The crew was great. The 13 he flight didn't feel that long."

Pros: "Very comfortable and good service aboard plane."
Cons: "Very long ride on bus from plane to terminal in DubaI. Very unusual and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Newer plane. Good options for entertainment."
Cons: "Again NOT impressed with busing out to plane and hiking up steep set of stairs in the heat of the day in Dubai. The bus ride was long and there were few seats for elderly, disabled, moms holding kids, etc."
Pros: "My mother was the passenger Emirates & was her first experience flying alone, but having airline assistance. She marveled at their service & at every consideration to make flying alone as a senior seamless & worry-free. She was so happy of their thoughtfulness for carrying her luggage, driving her wheelchair, checking in for her w/her passport & picking up her luggage at the baggage round, that she tipped him $20. She made us sure that she would LOVE to fly alone back home again to the PH without us as long as she has airline assistance. A hint for us! She also liked how there was more foot room for economy seats than in Delta & EvaAir for this long trip & it helped her stretch her legs, as well as, the little Emirates pocket bag they give w/ear plugs & a eye mask with socks."
Cons: "She says that on her way to MNL from JFK (with the 1 stop at Dubai) the food was delicious. However on the way back home from MNL to JFK, the food was not good & she just slept all the way through."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The plane seemed old compared with my flight to Dubai the morning of May 4, 2017."
Pros: "The outbound service from US was 10 times better than the inbound. US to Dubai would get 10/10 however the same flight inbound in terms of service, crew, food was 5/10."
Pros: "Service is fantastic and all the amenities. They pretty much think of everything. The warm towels at the end of the flight, the travel bag for the long international trips were perfect. The staff is very welcoming and helpful and we were in economy so I can only imagine what it must be like in First Class! Also the free entertainment is phenomenal- wide range of choice. We also enjoyed the outside cameras that help you see views from the outside. Pretty cool!"
Cons: "Little more leg room. When the chair in front of younreclines ot gets a little tight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and crew was dismissive with questions and concerns about connecting flights"

Pros: "The crew were excellent. Very helpful and professional."
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "flight got delayed 17 hours"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "The flight was little crowded but over all it was OK the food service was late and meal was delivered one hour late"
Boarding and In flight customer service
They made everyone go through the same line weather it was wheel chair or not had to wait slot longer seats are also small hurts my legs when flight is finished
Wasnt full so that’s a plus. Staff were outstanding. Patient, curteous, responsive. Masks were enfoced which is great. I’ve travelled with young kids of my own and have had some rough experiences with them but there is ALWAYS some way to pasify a screeming child. Many parents on this flight didnt care at all. I was awoken by a toddler running past me, bumping into my elbow, screaming “tee non, tee non, tee non”. On these transcontinental flights, parents with little children should be given a special section, and parents need to be more reponsive to the issues causing their little ones to scream and cry nonstop for 16.5 hrs. Its not the kids’ fault. Also, why cant airlines get rid of static charged fleece throws? All that said, Qatar remains one of the better international carriers out there.
Pros: "GOOD FLIGHT"
Pros: "Staff were very good . Business class very comfortable. I had low salt menu which was very comforting to be able to choose as salt not good for me."
Cons: "My flight got canceled but nobody responded from flyus.com"

Pros: "The A330, despite being an old plane, had really good recline."
Cons: "The entertainment was very outdated."
Pros: "Crew was great. TV Entertainment system was excellent."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "More snacks on a long flight would be good. Hot chocolate instead of tea and coffee would be appreciated by non-tea/coffee drinkers."
Pros: "Departed on time. Courteous staff."
Cons: "I had a continuing flight in first class but was not allowed entrance to the first class lounge."
Pros: "I like that they deliver me safe and sound to Vietnam"
Cons: "I would prefer no interruptions while I am watching my movie"
Pros: "Everything was just average to poor."
Cons: "Baggage was not handled properly. Food is just average. Crew looked very tired, they are probably too much overloaded with work and the airline has poor scheduling of shifts for their crews."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Good seats. Good seat space between you and person in front of you."
Pros: "Great crew and front desk"
Pros: "i like the service of qa. its amazing."
Cons: "none at all"

Cons: "The food. Hire a chef that knows how to make the food palatable."
Pros: "They are the best"
Cons: "Narrow 2x2 sleeper seats are really narrow and feel much too close to one another. ."

Cons: "Food . Seats. Entertainment - half the time , the touch screen doesn’t work."
Pros: "business cabin nearly empty. comfortable seats"
Cons: "Expensive WiFi"
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "They do their job well"
Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."
Pros: "The crew were nice and cautious"
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I notice when things go well. There is nothing I can complain about with Qatar; their equipment is up-to-date; their service is first-rate; their record for on-time departures and arrivals is excellent, and their food is good! I will gladly fly with them in the future."
Pros: "On our flight from Atlanta, we loved the service and great recommendations from the flight attendant, Carmen, who made great suggestions for our Malaysia trip."
Cons: "The seats were very tight and the food was okay, but the staff was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Cons: "The planes weren't as comfortable as others I've been on like the double deckers of Emirates. Their economy class was NOTHING special. Everyone talks about how superior Qatar is, but I found nothing special about it...the seats, the food, the entertainment were all basic and nothing fancy. The crew, while very sweet, seemed inexperienced and green to me..but they were lovely and that's all that ultimately matters."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly and tinely. Seats were confortable."
Cons: "No internet on-board and terrible food."
Pros: "Smoothe landing"
Cons: "Old plane, some kind of tablet thing with an attached remote almost impossible to figure out even how it works. 7hr flight and I only saw the steward twice."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Pros: "Timely response on the phone."
Cons: "Timely response on the phone."
Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very efficient and really took care of us."

Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."
Cons: "In the bathrooms there was only one type of tissue paper beside the toilet paper. Adding a thicker paper towel like most airlines do would be better so that passengers can clean up any water splashes as soft tissue is not effective for this."
Pros: "Flew from Frankfurt to Doha in Business 1A. Being a gold member and buz class received extra attention and the flight supervisor did a commendable job."
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "It was not a full flight. It was ok."
Cons: "Well, I noticed when the person in front of me reclined their seat, I had a hard time adjusting the entertainment screen so I could see it properly."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The plane was not as clean as the one from Doha to New York. The first movie that was played was inappropriate for children under 16 years old."
Pros: "Comfortable wide seats, good service"
Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."
Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."
Pros: "Again, the flight attendants were so sweet and nice and hospitable."
Cons: "The sitting quarters were so cramped. Maybe next time I'll save an additional $500 to go up a class but it was so smashed. It did not leave room for me to use the desk to eat or use my laptop."
Pros: "Great flights. lots of room in economy."
Cons: "You charge me around $400 Australian dollar because the emigration change the trip until I get the permission to travel overseas that not my fault , why you charge me all this amount ??!! Please return my money"
Cons: "All services throughout the process need to be improved from the ground to on board"
Pros: "The crew was understanding of our situation. We had a layover in Hong Kong and they moved us to the front in hopes that we will get out quicker to make the next flight."
Cons: "It wasn’t the airline fault that we were delayed nothing else could have been done"
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Cons: "The flight was three hours late."
Cons: "The staff very accomadating and helpful"
Pros: "miracle fight landed on time"
Cons: "terrible food - poor entertaiment system with limited choice and old movies - crew always on the pa"
Cons: "flight delayed as always"
Pros: "The seats are old .. the plane is old .. the flight was delayed 2 hours, food even in first class lounge is not apetising the menu has been cut significantly.. lettuce and tomato say that they are not sourced from China .. must be from India as the quality sucks"
Cons: "On time is an expectation that if you travel from HK to BKK on CX that it is always delayed .. common knowledge for people in Thailand.. this is bad"
Pros: "Reasonable leg room in the economy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours I could not take on board by carry on luggage because it weighted 10kg. Food service was poor and not well organized"
Cons: "Slow and old entertainment system. Bad seats"
Pros: "Pleased that the flight departed on time and arrived 50 minutes early. Sad that waiting for my luggage frittered away the time we gained by arriving early."
Cons: "Having your bags tagged as “priority “ really doesn’t mean anything. Watched nearly two flights’ luggage go by on the carousel before mine came out. This is becoming the norm over the past several months for most airlines and airports. I don’t mind waiting for my bags. I do mind waiting with a false expectation of priority service."
Pros: "Was good but the food was bad"
Pros: "The food was delicious! And they had a great selection of drinks at no additional price. The crew was very professional and welcoming. Overall so much better than any American airline I have flew with."
Cons: "Would be amazing to have a little more room in the economy seats!"
Cons: "Plane from Manila to Hong Kong was newer and better than the plane from Hong Kong to Newark. Upgrade the planes for longer hours flight"
Pros: "The crew is so nice!"
Cons: "Same seat selection issue."
Cons: "It was a long delay, about an hour. The airline kept silence until too late. They gave us a blanket, some refreshments and where to have breakfast. Those who made a fuss were taken to hotel. Many others stayed at the airport and had a terrible night."
Pros: "Everything was great !"
Cons: "Food was average"
Pros: "The plane was great Boeing 350 I think great entertainment system, comfortable seats, and the Singapore new terminal 4 is wounderful"
Cons: "Kosher meal served lukewarm"
Pros: "My checked luggage bag was damaged. I noticed the damage only after I I reached home. However, when I reported Cathay Pacific baggage staff were very helpful and professional. I know several airlines who hide behind bureaucratic procedures to stonewall customers. CP is not one of them. Excellent service, before, after and during the flight."
Cons: "There was a long delay when boarding the connecting flight to SGN and there weren't any clear updates on the flight status. I didn't mind the wait so much but I wish they had announced the current status more clearly."
Pros: "Great service from flight attendants."
Pros: "Smooth flight , crew members were good"
Cons: "Food and chair space The head set was in a sealed bag , when I opened it I found 2 white hair inside !!! The blanket was soiled with chocolate in a sealed bag !! Delayed flight for an hour without timely announcement"
Pros: "A very enjoyable flight experience, everything was very smooth."
Pros: "Staff very courteous and helpful Food was average"
Pros: "Left earlier than expected and accomedations with movies and food was great"
Cons: "They were limited with certain meals"
Pros: "Checkin was a breeze, the flight attendants were great, food was good, seats were comfortable, good selection of movies. What more can you ask for"
Pros: "Great staff and good service Took care of us like a family thanks"
Cons: "Food can be better as we Indians don't eat brief and pork"
Pros: "Took off late, missed transfer flight, payed over 6 hours said they would buy lunch dinner. Could pay for hamburger with it, frltf"
Cons: "Seats are terrible"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, clean toilets, great service, awesome entertainment options, great movie selection with search by keyword"

Pros: "Everything was fantastic all services was really awesome. It was my first time to flight Cathy and i was amazed"
Pros: "Amazing flight! Continue to serve pleasantly to all passengers"
Pros: "I really appreciated the customer service and the level of quality Cathay provides."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals could improve."
Pros: "It was the best that it could be. Our flight was late and we got the airport early, so the flight attendants put us on an earlier flight so we could make our connection!"
Pros: "I liked the crews the food just ok. It was a long flight,my back was uncomfortable."
Cons: "The headphones did not work."
Cons: "Food was awful. Plenty of options but tasted cheap. Felt like flying on a budget airline"
Pros: "Shorter flight airplane much nicer"
Pros: "Entertainment is ok"
Cons: "I requested support on ground and nobody was there tu support a difficulty I had"
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very kind and helpful. Excellent service throughout the flight. The in-flight entertainment screen had a bunch of new films and series to choose from, that's a big plus. The dinner and breakfast were not that special, but very good considering it was served at 36 000 feet."
Cons: "I flew in Economy, and the legroom was awful for me. (I'm around 190cm tall.) The seats were crammed so tight I had trouble staying comfortable even when awake, and I didn't sleep too good."
Pros: "Clean plan, good food and drink and great service from the crew."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight of my life due to turbulance"
Pros: "Check in was efficient. I like that they have generous carry on policy. No checked bag fees. Boarding was quick and easy."
Pros: "Vietnam airlines stands out in SE Asian carriers. Great service and planes leaving and arriving on time."
Cons: "Keep up great service standards"
Pros: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Pros: "The flight was quick, limited turbulence, and the crew was very friendly and pleasant to fly with. The only negative was the plane itself."
Cons: "The plane smelt like fresh urine, chemicals, feces, and burning rubber. Simply put, the plane should not be in active rotation. It felt immensely unsafe as the plane rattled and moaned throughout the flight."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating, seat space for economy was generous and comfortable for a 2hr flight."
Cons: "Luggage allowance for economy is only one check-in bag, as opposed to most airlines these days, which give two check-in bags. For the price paid (almost $300) for a return trip to Yangon from HCMC, this is expensive -- and I booked over a month in advance. Should be offering more leverage."
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Delayed with no announcements or explanation."
Pros: "Check in was efficient"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Amazing"
Pros: "It went smoothly from start to finish"
Cons: "Last minute wanted to check our luggage as the plane was boarding and almost caused us to miss our flight. Flight crew unhelpful and not friendly"
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."
Pros: "Was able to buy last minute at airport. food and drinks are fine"
Cons: "delayed by 40mins. but is ok as already informed from morning entertainment is overhead screen aircon not strong"
Pros: "We really enjoy the additional room in Premium Economy. The boarding process and checki in was terrific."
Cons: "Whilst the crew were pleasant today"
Pros: "The food was good as there were selections of either Japanese food or Western food. In flight entertainment was good too with enough selections to choose from. Overalll, the service of crew was satisfying."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a little during departure. Arrival to ho chi minh is not via aerobridge."
Pros: "I arrived on time."
Cons: "The food was horrid and the entertainment system was sub mediocre at st best."
Pros: "Check in was easy, food was decent, there was a TV 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: "All good"
Pros: "Was good - everything you would expect except the boarding times etc were odd. It asked you to be there at the gate an hour before departure but it only started boarding maybe 10 mins before and didn't give updates about departure delays."
Cons: "No space in the Kayak booking to make meal requests like vegetarian, so ended up starving and without dinner until I got to the city 4 hours after boarding a late flight because VN Airlines didn't have any vegetarian meals on board. I couldn't even eat the salad as they put salmon on it. Cold bread roll and fruit... Kayak need to have at least the most common fields in the booking like vegetarian meal request."
Pros: "late flight from sg,will usually depart on time"
Cons: "they moved to changi terminal 4. Terminal 3 is much better because of train connectivity."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late. My seat was wet when we boarded. I’m not sure it was really the crews fault, but still sucked and not a great experience."
Pros: "Transit assitance was good, would have been even better if it was highlight after ticket purchase in electronic form"
Cons: "Took too long (more than 1 hour in queue) to check in at Sydney"
Pros: "I choose this flight because of late departure time"
Cons: "no entertainment. no wifi."
Pros: "There was a long line for the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh flights but with multiple counters devoted to this route alone we were checking in not long after having been dropped off at the airport. We were offered seats on an earlier fight which we eagerly accepted. Knowing that this route is often cited as one of the busiest in the world it was no surprise to find ourselves on a wide-body jet, Airbus 330-200 even on this 2-hour flight. A small snack was served. The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Food... only could have the fruit"
Pros: "Boarding on the 787 Dreamliner was ok French wine selection was good"
Cons: "Food was average Limited entertainment movies etc Seat was uncomfortable and rocked either broken or poorly adjusted - thrilling on landing!! Staff did their minimum job and that's it no drinks during flight etc strange during a day flight they dimmed the windows to watch movie I hate the offset seating configuration I'm 184cm and it was difficult to stretch out."
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: "Unexpected charge of $450 to transfer planes in Vietnam. Worst purchase ever."
Pros: "Bottled water and ample leg room pretty much sums up this short flight from Phu Quoc to SGN."
Cons: "Crew at check-in counter was not friendly or helpful. Even though our pregnancy was documented a week earlier by Vietnam Airlines, she made us go through the same process, though we showed her we had the same form already in our possession."
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."
Pros: "Was able to change seat to exit row; not crowded; A350 is a really nice plane. Vietnam Airlines has amazingly friendly and helpful crew, extremely pleasant. Catering from Japan is edible. Delta Platinum gives you lounge access in Osaka and HCMC."
Cons: "A/V system was on the fritz for the whole plane; was not activated until 45 minutes into the flight and then kept cutting out for all passengers. I just gave up and slept."
Pros: "Food: good recipes, shoved out hot"
Cons: "Ticketing desk chaotic with apathetic staff; no sense of first-come-first-serve; you have to be firm about people cutting in front of you and be sharp when they open or close the stations. On the plane, crew performs responsibility checklist, not a smidgeon more; no sense of hospitality or gratiousness; cattle car mentality. Blanket received not in a wrapper and smelled of another person. Plane from Singapore late. Bus transit instead of jetway. Bus late; long time standing on plane waiting to exit."
Pros: "Early check in was not a problem and baggage check in weight is great and not paying for it."
Cons: "This flight seems more and more every time we take an econo flight which, should be cheaper then what you get for pricing. No fluff flight only I can see the different is the baggage weight you can take is only the extra. Seem we stayed on the tar mac for a while flying out and flying in Ho Chi which, the air movement in the cabin was not that great at all and little stuffy and warm. One thing leaving out of Term 3 at Singapore if you go thru Immegration and want to eat the food is not great all and stay away from Burger King and for the 3rd time got sick again! Worst Burger Jiont in the World ever! From no soda, the chicken nuggets tasting like fish, and the Burgees did not taste like burger very sickening! Thier are a rip-off to still wanted everyone to pay full price for the a meal and without no drink and pay extra for water and wanted people to pay for ice. Burger King Co. really need to take hard look at this Joint for very bad foods serving people and getting them sick and ripping people off with money. Seats are small and compact and the seat belt for the airline is small for a bigger person and not meaning over weight."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding was easy"
Cons: "No entertainment and the business class seat doesn't lay flat all the way."
Pros: "Overall my experience was good. Pros: seat are comfortable. The jet seemed more spacious than ANA airlines. Cons: workers know little English compared to ANA from checking in to the flight attendants. I think this was the most disappointing because the language barrier was frustrating when needing help going the right direction and having questions about checking in. The food was OK. The fruit tasted rotten and the food didn't seem as fresh either. The customer service was also mediocre. When I was on ANA airlines all the staff were very helpful and they seemed statisfied with their jobs. When I travel to ASIA again I will try and avoid Vietnam airlines."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Oh Food. Again food. I have been being served the same food for more than 10 years. bread and cold meat...!!!"
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: "Small plane and very nice people. Short flight so no food or entertainment to judge. Just hard not to love the Cambodians."
Pros: "The flight had many open seats, the crew helped to board passengers efficiently, the food was plentiful and they even offered wine on a 3 hour flight. It was delightful."
Cons: "There weren't individual entertainment systems."
Cons: "We booked the flight for family of 8 Despite informing them over counter in Narita international airport that to place us at 2 together in the same because we have kid of 8 years and 12 years , we were all allocated separately. We could not do online check in even we log in 24 hours before flight ,all seats shown available is individual. Being in the airport early does not help too. I will definitely not consider taking Vietnam airlines in future n will cautious friends to be aware of such service."
Pros: "The Air France business lounge that Vietnam Airlines use in CDG Airport was excellent. Lots of space a good selection of food. The airline staff where all wonderful and food on the plane was delicious. I like the sleeping pods. Very private and comfortable."
Cons: "I would like a few more recent English movie choices."
Cons: "The lack of support to help us to rearrange flight. No explanation"
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: "No baggage charge, good comfortable plane."
Cons: "It wasn't possible to check baggage through to Yangon despite it being advertised as a connecting flight. Very annoying to have to collect and re check in at HCMC airport while in transit."
Pros: "friendly air crew"
Cons: "limited film and entertainment"
Pros: "The aircraft is the new 787 Dreamliner and this was the first time I've ridden in one. Vietnam Airlines did a great job buying this thing for their long haul flights. It has more legroom, better seat comfort, better power points and entertainment than just about every other carrier right now. Plus the Dreamliner puts some humidity in the air while you're flying and I very clearly noticed that my sinuses weren't sore after a 12 hour flight like they usually would be. In fact, I would say that I never sleep on a flight due to being uncomfortable, and this flight on the 787 I slept for 7-8 hours both ways to and from Europe. Arriving with a clear head and no sinus pain was a welcome change to be sure! Food was very good going to Germany and a little less good, but still ok coming back. I think that is because the Vietnamese food services do a better job supplying aircraft than the German ones do. Overall a great experience and one I would love to do again! I am a frequent flyer with time flying all around the world, including in the front of the plane as the pilot."
