Hi guys. Welcome to my next report on Flight-Report. Today, I will fly with Vietjet Air from Phu Quoc to Ho Chi Minh City on a wet-leased Airbus A320 from a Moldovan low-cost carrier named FlyOne. But first, please check out my trip report about this flight on YouTube. This video is more detailed than the script version on Flight-Report and has more special things there, so I hope you guys will check out, like the video and support to my channel by subscribe Vinavia on YouTube :D  



And here is the script report. Hope you guys will enjoy :D


Today's flight would start at Phu Quoc International Airport, Phu Quoc Island.

And here is the departure hall of the terminal. The terminal doesn't seem so large, but when you go inside, it turns out pretty large and impressive.



Vietjet Air's check-in counters

Check-in was really fast, since I was at the airport so early, and at the time the counters for this flight opened, not many people there. Now I headed to the security check.

The security was fast too, and I got in the airside very quickly.

After getting around the airside, I went to the departure gate of this flight.

While I was waiting at the gate, I received the announcement that my flight was delayed 30 minutes. That was a typical thing when flying this airlines, so I didn't surprise about it. 


The gate for this flight was gate 2.

Finally, the aircraft for this flight had arrived from Ho Chi Minh City. The registration of this A320 is ER-00003, and it was 11.2 years old. Like I said, this plane is wet-leased from a Moldovan airline named FlyOne. And I was really excited to be on this unique plane XD.

Legroom was a bit cramped , but not too cramped to me though.

15 minutes after boarding, the aircraft started to pushback and taxi to the runway.

The aircraft took-off right after entered the runway. While taking-off, you guys can see the view of the island from above, and also, the whole view of Phu Quoc International Airport, too. (you can check it out in the video).




In the seat pocket, we had: a sickness bag, a safety card, and a menu.

10 minutes after take-off, buy-on-board services were begun. Because the flight was quite short so the crews would only sell stuffs if you pressed the call button.

The view outside the window during the flight. Since the flight was flown in the pretty low attitude, so you can clearly see the gorgeous view of Mekong Delta from above.

Conclusion

The only thing I don't like about this flight is the 30-minutes delay. But otherwise, I'm pretty happy with this flight. Flying on an Moldovan jet in Vietnam is truly an unique experience. The crews were truly nice, impressive Moldovan hospitality. And during the flight, I was enjoying the stunning view of Mekong Delta. Overall, I won't forget this exotic flight :D
