I already did online check-in and I didn't have any checked baggage, so I headed directly to the security check.

Security check procedure was fast and I quickly got into airside.

Here was the gate for this flight: gate 17, which is a bus gate.

Boarding was called, and I got on the bus to get to the plane.

After a ride from the terminal to the apron, I finally reached the aircraft. The registration of this A321 is LY-VEG, and it was 15.9 years old.

Vietjet Air has leased this aircraft from Avion Express, which is a Lithuanian aircraft leasing operator to serve during Lunar New Year holidays. Interestingly, this aircraft was served for Thomas Cook Airlines before the liquidation, that is why it still had Thomas Cook's livery colors, but unfortunately, there was no logo of Thomas Cook on this plane anymore.

Boarding

As you can see, the signature seats of Thomas Cook are still remained in this aircraft.

My seat on this flight was 15A.

Legroom was pretty cramped and I could not stretch my legs.

This tray table was pretty low, it almost touched my knees.

During the wait for departure, I had admired the sunrise view outside the window. It was truly marvelous :D

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

Take-off

In the seat pocket, I had: a sickness bag, a safety card, a menu, and an inflight magazine of Vietjet Air called one2FLY.

20 minutes after take-off, buy-on-board service was started.

I decided to buy a cup of tea and a small package of cashew with the total price of just under 2 dollars.

I took a look at lavatory at the back after the buy-on-board service ended. This lavatory was pretty dated like the age of this aircraft and the amenities were just basic.
