Since I already make online check-in at home, so I went to online check-in counter at Row G to get my boarding pass. It took me 30 minutes to get that. Quite a long time for that.

I made it into the airside. Now, I went to the gate for this flight.

Sadly,I had a heavily scratched window this time. Unlucky me :(

After take-off, FAs started to serve meal trays to passengers. There were 2 choices of meals: prawn with noodles, and chicken rice. I chose prawn with noodles.

Here was the meal tray. The main course was stir-fried glass noodles with prawn, the appetizer was vegatable sad with Italian dressing, the desert was lychee pudding. I also had a bread roll, with butter.

The flight was quite nice, better than what I expected; even though the check-in process was a mess, and the window was heavily scratched. The meal was definitely the highlight of the flight. For a short international flight like that, it was really superb. The crews were professional, but they could be better. Lastly, the flight departed on time.

    Hi Vinavia, thanks for sharing your first report here. The photos and video are beautiful! I always like to see reports from Vietnam or on VN (I'm half Viet).

    I love the VN livery--it's so beautiful and a nice change from all of the boring white liveries out there. The cabin itself is pretty ordinary but it seems comfortable, with decent legroom, and at least there are overhead TVs.

    I'm very impressed with the meal. It looks really nice for such a short flight.

    Looking forward to more beautiful reports in the future and Welcome to Flight-Report!

      Thank you so much for your words. I love the livery of VN, too; and the meal was extraordinary on this flight.
      I will post more reports on this site, so hope you will stay tuned. Also, please check out and subscribe to my YouTube's channel. There are plenty more of VN's reports there ;D

    Hi Vinavia! Welcome to!

    I went to online check-in counter at Row G to get my boarding pass

    Aren't you allowed to carry your BP on your cellphone?? I wonder what's the point of checking in online if you can't do that!

    Legroom was pretty decent

    Looks great, indeed!

    Here was the meal tray

    Asian airlines seem to be unbeatable in the inflight meal department! Those photos always make me hungry!

    Great report, Vinavia! Thanks for sharing! :)

      Thank you so much about your comment. Yes, the meal looked really amazing. About the boarding pass, according to the rules, you have to print the boarding pass for all international flight, because at immigration, they will stamp the exit stamp to your boarding pass. I don't know why ?
