Cambodia Angkor Air PNH-REP (A320 economy) : FR soon
Hong Kong Express REP-HKG (A320 economy) : FR soon
Emirates HKG-DXB (A380 economy) : FR soon
Emirates DXB-CDG (A380 economy) : no FR

Don't forget to change your last Lao Kip to USD. Yes, they use USD in Cambodia as their normal daily currency !.

My tour guide told us that at half the times on this flight, they don't serve food in the flight and as the flight is during lunch time, it is a good idea to buy a small snack before boarding. In the departure terminal there is a coffee shop.

Cool World time zone map. Oups, I don't want to be late to board ;)

The security check and imigration were fast.
Departure lounge with lots of seats, a snack shop and a duty free shop. The snack shop has a free wi-fi signal !.

We were lucky !. A Cold snack was served : tomato, pickles, cucumber, ham, sausage, butter and bread. I made a good sandwich. Not bad for a 1h flight !.

Just after the cabin crew removed the food tray, we were already landing. Aerial view of Phnom Penh and the mighty Mekong river.

    Your plane was an A321, but you mention once an A320 (before boarding) .
    Use a free software to rotate the wing view.
    The visa on arrival counters do not seem to have changed since six years ago.
    Thanks for sharing, and welcome among the contributors to the website !

    Thank you for your first FR!
    It would be nice if you wrote a little more about your flight and your trip as a whole.
    I'm also taking VN in a few weeks on KUL-SGN-TPE.
    Looking forward to your further FR.
