Check-in was done, and I got my boarding pass. Then I waited in line for security check

Unfortunately, the queue was really long and it took me plenty of time to get through and get into the airside.

25 minutes later, I finally finished the security check procedure and made into airside. Time to go upstairs and get to the gate.

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

The gate for this flight was gate 12, and this is a bus gate.

Boarding was called, and I had to go downstairs to get on the bus, in order to get on the aircraft.

Here was the aircraft for this flight. The registration of this A320 is TC-FBO, and it was 7.5 years old. This aircraft is leased from Freebird Airlines, a Turkish charter airline.

Legroom was not so spacious, especially when straightening the legs.

For drink: Beside tea and coffee, there were 2 choices of drinks: water and coke. And I asked for a cup of coke

Since this flight was not at dinner time, so no hot meal for this flight unfortunately. The meal was just fine, not very special. But at least the bread tasted decent.

The darkness started to appear after the meal services were over and the meal trays were cleared.

In the seat pocket, I had: a sickness bag, a safety card, and an inflight magazine of Bamboo Airways called LOOK.

After 1 hour and 25 minutes in the air, the aircraft started to descend and prepared to land.  And outside the window is the view of Gulf of Tonkin at night. Super marvelous XD

Hanoi - HAN



The check-in procedure was fast and smooth. The flight departed on time. The meal on this flight was not so tasty and attractive to eat like my last flight with them, but at least, it was still edible. The crews' attitude is definitely the best thing of Bamboo Airways, and this flight is no exception. Overall, I had quite an enjoyable flight this time with Bamboo Airways, And watching the spetacular sceneries outside the window during this flight was definitely a pure enjoyment.
