Check-in was done, and I got my boarding pass. Then I went to the security check in order to head inside the airside. As you can see, here is actually the waiting line for checking-in of Vietnam Airlines' pasengers. Since I flown on holidays, so there were more crowded than usual.

After the security check was done, I went to the gate. And the gate for this flight was gate 10.

When I got to the gate, I realized my flight was delayed 1 hour and 30 minutes than schedule, which was quite suck because this was actually my 1st flying having delay with them, and Bamboo Airways recently has had the highest on-time performance among other carriers in Vietnam.

Legroom was quite spacious, and it was comfortable for me to stretch my legs, which is quite important for a comfortable flight.

Shortly after take-off, the cabin crew started serving the meals. On this flight, there were 2 meals options: pork with rice, and beef with noodles. An I chose beef with noodles.

Ho Chi Minh City - SGN



The flight was awesome and really nice. The cabin crews were really friendly, and professional, which is the best thing about Bamboo Airways. The meal was tasty, and it tasted wonderful. Airlines in Vietnam barely serves pho on their flight, so having this on QH's flight was definitely a gold. Unfortunately, the worst thing of this trip was the delay. I guess I was really unlucky to catch a delayed flight on many of their on-time flights. But still, I really satisfied with this flight.
