Routing

We arrive at the airport nearby 9:15am, after a quick taxi journey. The airport building is new and pretty good, here the domestic terminal.

 Then go to the FIDS looking for our flight VN170 expected to leave at 11:30am

But, there is no VN170. The flight just don't exist, so we go to VN counters, where they just put us on the previous flight VN168 leaving at 11am
 Here the travel docs

12:40pm, our descent has started over Ha Noi

What a contrast with Ho Chi Minh airport which is located into the city, Noi Bai is located in the contryside.
