VN661 flight, the A321 seats are starting to show heavy sign of wear and tear
The flight was delayed and changed of boarding gates without notifying the passengers; no updates on electronic boards. Everyone had to wait for a very long time and tired. No food was served even though our ticket covered a dinner set. I got to my hotel after midnight. Terrible experience with this flight
Khuyết điểm: "Onboarding time"
Khuyết điểm: "With COVID 19 middle seats were taken and vans from flight to gate was packed. No consideration beside having us wear mask"
Ưu: "Vietnam airlines stands out in SE Asian carriers. Great service and planes leaving and arriving on time."

Ưu: "Crew were great. Seating was comfortable."
Khuyết điểm: "Boarding seems a bit of a crazy process."
Khuyết điểm: "I purchased an exit row seat. Upon checking they confirmed my seat number but did not inform me of an equipment change so I was no longer in an exit row. The crew was great and allowed me to take the exit row seat after boarding was complete"
Ưu: "Because of my Platinum status with Delta the gate agent changed our seats to more legroom in exit row"
Khuyết điểm: "We’re used to entertainment in seat like delta"
Ưu: "The flights left and arrived on time."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Only 15 minutes late, could have been worse"
Khuyết điểm: "I had to use a belt extension, which did not work. I tried to attract the attention of the crew, but did not succeed."
Khuyết điểm: "Reservation online"
Ưu: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "Seat comfort, food, entertainment, boarding, disembarking."

Ưu: "Check in was efficient"
Ưu: "Early departure and arrival. Amazing"
Khuyết điểm: "From a perspective of the food, I have a very limited western diet and struggled with the food choices, but it was a night time flight so I would not have eaten much anyway so there was no great loss ."
Khuyết điểm: "Toilets need to be cleaned up from time to time during the flight and supply of toilet paper etc... should be at hand. It takes too long to disembark passengers."
Ưu: "Nice massage centre. Water on site. Coffee shops. Flight very full and uncomfortable"
Khuyết điểm: "No towels in shower. Not very clean. Information desk not very helpful. No one to book sleeping cubicles—-very confusing"

Ưu: "Loved the pod seating in business class. Very confirtable"
Ưu: "The crew was nice"
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing worked on the flight and the food was poor. When we arrived in a massive rain storm we had to disembark the plane with stairs so we all got wet."
Ưu: "The schedule on time"
Ưu: "As a Delta Platinum member we got to us the Lotus Lounge, which was very nice."
Khuyết điểm: "Some friendly smiles from the ground crew would have made our trip a bit better"
Ưu: "evrry thing"
Khuyết điểm: "none"
Ưu: "The crew was very attentive and nice"
Khuyết điểm: "The seats are very close together. It's hard to get comfortable"
Khuyết điểm: "delay flight from Phu quoc to Saigon from 12h to 18h (more than 6 hours ) . I must cancel that flight for safe and stay one more night and switch to the soonest flight next morning"
Ưu: "Vietnam Airlines has good leg room on both international and domestic flights. Blankets and pillows were preplaced on seats, as were headphones in the seat pockets. Lunch and one round of snacks were served. Beverages were offered a few times."
Khuyết điểm: "Cabin was inconsistently cooled. The rear was cold while the front was hot. Some passengers complained about being hot, but flight attendant only pointed out the overhead gasper vents, which were obviously open but did little to help the sweating and general discomfort. No personal entertainment system, only drop down screens. Food was average."
Ưu: "Crew was helpful and stern when necessary. Due to the short flight (45 minutes), a bottle of water was handed out."
Khuyết điểm: "By no fault to the airlines, the domestic terminal is incredibly inefficient and unsympathetic to travelers with special needs (like tired and hot pregnant mothers). On top of this, you get grumpy and crotchety travelers pushing and complaining."
Ưu: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Flight was on time and crew was professional and polite."
Ưu: "Staff were excellent. Plane was nice and clean. I would not hesitate to fly with then again."

Khuyết điểm: "However, snack was one of the worst I've had in 50 +years of flying."
Ưu: "Great staff, clean plane and modern"
Khuyết điểm: "It was very hot!!! No air circulation at all. Food was bland. No snacks given out"
Ưu: "They fed us dinner and kept the lights dimmed most of the time. Good selection of movies too, which was important bc I couldn't sleep."
Khuyết điểm: "Not a ton of room (esp legroom) in economy, making it tough to get comfy/sleep. They occasionally randomly turned the cabin lights back on which was a bit annoying."
Ưu: "Very professional and very clean planes."
Ưu: "Very professional in the way they approach the business. Everyone is well trained. The crews English is surprisingly good. As a handicapped passenger they have the whole wheelchair routine down pat. I like this airline. The food is marginal and on the 1.5 hour flight I would discontinue food service. I even like the exterior color of the aircraft."
Khuyết điểm: "For a regional carrier. There is nothing to criticize"
Ưu: "friendly air crew"
Khuyết điểm: "limited film and entertainment"
Ưu: "Flight on time. Food OK."
Khuyết điểm: "Nothing"
Missed my flight No alerts about visa to Hanoi
Very good airline, everything easy, check in etc, good service and leaves on time.
Ground crew clueless, delayed flight gate change without communication. Horrible experience. Will not fly Vietjet again.
Everything seems good so far, only thing is delay...2nd time flying with vietjet and 2nd time got delay :(
The actual flight was ok, everything else terrible worst airline in South East Asia, delayed twice and eventually took off late again, waiting in room at gate before flight no staff there no information about second delay, jammed on bus with doors closed waiting to be taken to the plane, just a disgusting airline, do not ever rely on this Vietjet will always cancel or delay your flight, and it’s not cheap when you see luggage price and other add ons, if possible try to book a better airline Bamboo air etc
Very basic, all seats are non reclining
Ưu: "Worst Airline Ever"
Khuyết điểm: "Vietjet needs to update their refund policy"
Khuyết điểm: "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)."
Khuyết điểm: "Get more Customer Services training for the better and for the next level of international services provider...."
Ưu: "Vietjet’s staff are always attractive, smiling, and friendly. I like the double embarking and disembarking process."
Khuyết điểm: "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!"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Ưu: "Fast and efficient and low cost budget"
Ưu: "Nothing really impressive."
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Ưu: "It was on time for a change"
Khuyết điểm: "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?"
Khuyết điểm: "Delays with no explanation or expected timing"
Ưu: "Quick flight"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Flight Cree good"
Khuyết điểm: "Seats, no jet ways to board or deplane"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "Crew members playing video games while waiting on the Tarmac.. very unprofessional.. driver of shuttle should be fired for not paying attention..."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Good pilot and crew, comfortable seats because we were given the ones right behind the exit row seats with some leg room."
Khuyết điểm: "Our original flight time was delayed the first time, and then it got delayed AGAIN about 45 minutes after we got to the airport!"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "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."
Ưu: "Uneventful flight. Nothing worth writing home about. No food, no entertainment, no hassle either."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Flights were on time and worked well for us. Flight attendants were helpful"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "The plane got me to my destination"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Ưu: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Provide 30kg of luggage allowance and at least a clear method for prepurchasing luggage allowance in your website"
Ưu: "Cheap flights but u get what u pay for"
Khuyết điểm: "2 delays of 10hrs"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Khuyết điểm: "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!"
Khuyết điểm: "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"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Not much"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Reservations were relatively easy to make on line and relatively easy to purchase on-line."
Khuyết điểm: "Purchasing tickets this way can result in a lot of confusion upon arriving at the Airport. Without any documents that the Check-in Counter can use to process Check-in, the traveller will find out that a visit is required to a separate desk to obtain your reservation number scribbled on a scrap of paper to take back to the Check-in Counter (after waiting on line there again) so that the agent can find your record and proceed with check-in. This two step process is confusing and not immediately obvious to even the seasoned International traveller. Good thing I'm not easily flustered!"
Khuyết điểm: "There is no entertainment in flight and baggage check in is an issue ."
Ưu: "Clean, efficient, new aircraft, very good value"
Ưu: "Schedule and price were reasonable."
Khuyết điểm: "Extremely noisy announcements, much louder than necessary. Poor boarding information. Incorrect gate info and poor messaging."
Ưu: "Cheap fares"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Staff onboard friendly"
Khuyết điểm: "Flight check very slow"
Ưu: "Check in and boarding processes were actually ok this time! Decent timeliness and decent comfort level on flight."
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Fluent English, comfortable and ample seat space"
Khuyết điểm: "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."
Ưu: "Please be aware they can change flight times earlier without communicating"
Ưu: "Doing its job to fly you on time with good schedule. For less than 1 hour flight that's all you need"
Khuyết điểm: "#Delayed for about three-quarters of an hour. #Cramped seating. #Coffee unpleasant. #Male crew abrupt."
Khuyết điểm: "It was delayed over 1 hour. it was many times since i've used."
