5 minutes later, I finally got into the airside, then I headed to the departure gate of this flight right away.



The departure gate for this flight was gate 5.

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

Before descending, I went to the lavatory and took a glance there. I must say Bamboo Airways always impresses me at how they keep their lavatories clean nice and clean.

After about 30 minutes flying, the aircraft started to descend and prepared to land.

Conclusion

There wasn't a queue waiting for check-in, so the check-in process was really fast. The seat was pretty comfortable and the cabin was nice & well-equipped. Even though this plane was quite aged, the interiors were still well-maintain and in good condition. The flight departed on time. The flight was short, so there were nothing much about the inflight services. The crews were friendly and professional throughout the flight. In conclusion, this flight was short yet very nice and enjoyable. It's great to see Bamboo Airways still maintains their excellent services quality after a year in operation.

    Thank you Vinavia for your flight report on Bamboo Airways.

    Before descending, I went to the lavatory and took a glance there. I must say Bamboo Airways always impresses me at how they keep their lavatories clean nice and clean.>

    It actually looks more like a ''Vacation or Tropical Beach theme looking Lavatory, by focusing on the flooring and the colors. Although, cleaners almost always clean the toilets prior to each flight, it is up to "1" dirty passenger, who could really make the experience unpleasant to all!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for the report Vinavia!
    Last night I was watching a video report by Josh on Bamboo's Boeing 787-9 and I'm really impressed! It's very appealing! I hope they can compete with other airlines in Vietnam and South-East Asia as well.
