Hi guys. Welcome to my 3rd report on Flight-Report. But first, please check out my trip report with Nok Air from Bangkok to Nan with Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. This video is more detailed and has more exciting things there, so I hope you guys will check out, like the video and support to my channel by subscribe Vinavia on YouTube :D



Here is the script report.

My flight started at Terminal 2, Don Mueang International Airport, Bangkok.

I would fly on flight DD8826 to Nan, the lovely province in Northern Thailand with plentiful of interesting places. Speak a bit about this flight. Nok Air had stopped operating flights between Bangkok to Nan since April 18, 2019. This flight was made on February, 2 months before the termination. I was quite sad when I knew that news.

Nok Air's check-in area

Because I already did online check-in so at the airport, I went to the web check-in counter to get my paper boarding pass.

After I got my paper boarding pass, time for me to head to the security check.

And I made it to the airside. The security check process was not so long, even though there were many passengers at that area back then.

On the way to gate.

The gate for this flight was gate 73, which is the bus gate. That means I would board on the plane by the bus.

After sitting and waiting about 15 minutes, boarding was called, and I got on the bus in order to get to the aircraft.

The ride was quite far. And finally, 10 minutes later, I arrived the place where the aircraft parked. The registration of this Q400 is HS-DQB, and its name is "Nok Kao Neaw", and it was 4.8 years old. This was my 1st time flying Q400 so I really excited to fly this plane :D

My seat on this flight was 35D, which actually located at the 6th row of the cabin. Weird numbering, right?

Legroom was actually quite nice and decent for me.



Take-off

On the seat pocket, we had: a sickness bag, a sefety card, a Nok Air's inflight magazine called JIBjib, and a menu.

Shortly after take-off, small bottles of water were distributed.

Even though, Nok Air ia a budget airline, they still provide complimentary water on their flights. What a really nice touch :D

After small bottles of water were distributed, buy-on-board service was begun.

I bought a mango juice pouch, which wasn't on the menu, and it costed me 50 baht (which about $1,5). Quite cheap actually!

After buy-on-board service was over, I enjoyed the sunset view from the window.

The sky was getting dark very fast, and 20 minutes later, the plane was descended and ready to land.

After about 1 hour flying, the aircraft finally landed at Nan Nakhon Airport.

Time to disembark, and I made a last look to the aircraft for this flight.

And welcome to Nan Nakhon Airport. The airport was amazed me at how gorgeous this small airport is.

Conclusion

It was an amazing flight. The check-in process was smooth, I had no difficulty at all; the crews were really friendly and helpful; the inflight service was really great for this short domestic flight, especially at providing free water for passengers; and the flight departed on time. Overall, nothing to complain about this flight, and I would love to fly with Nok Air again. But one sad thing is that Nok Air no longer operates flights between Bangkok and Nan.
