Hi guys. Welcome to my next report on Flight-Report. Today, I will fly with Bamboo Airways from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City on their Boeing 787-9. 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 Terminal 1, Noi Bai International Airport, Hanoi.
Today, I would fly on flight QH245 to Ho Chi Minh City, and the estimated departure time would be 9 am. This was my first time being in the Premium Economy Class, so I was extremely excited for this flight.
Bamboo Airways' check-in area
To sit in the Premium Economy cabin, I had selected the Premium Economy Class seat in the front for just 165.000đ (about $7). Keep in mind that it was just Premium Economy Class seat selection, the services remained the same as Economy Class. (the price for Premium Economy Class seat selection will be different on international flights)
10 minutes later, I got my boarding pass. Now I went to the security check area.
After 10 minutes, I finally made it into the airside. Then I went to the departure gate of this flight.
Here was the departure gate of this flight: gate 11
This was the aircraft for today's flight. A Boeing 787 named Sam Son Beach with the registration of VN-A818, and it was 0.3 years old.
This aircraft was delivered on January 2020, and it was the 2nd B787 joined Bamboo Airways' fleets.
Here was my seat on this flight: seat 33A.
Legroom was huge and tremendous compared to Economy Class.
And there is a footrest under the front seat.
Tray table is located in the left armrest.
And there is a personal device holder in the tray table.
IFE controller, and seat control.
Universal power outlet and USB port are located under the right armrest.
View from my window.
30 minutes after boarding, the aircraft started to pushback and taxi to the runway.
Safety demonstration was demonstrated during that time.
About 10 minutes after take-off, snacks were served.
And this was the snack box that I got.
In the box, I had a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich.
And a bottle of water.
The banh mi sandwich was filled with pate and lettuce.
This sandwich tasted alright, a bit dry, and it reminds me of the the one I had on my first flight flight with Bamboo Airways.
Like the last flight on Boeing 787 of Bamboo Airways, the IFE system was not yet available.
Let's have a look at the lavatory in the front of the cabin. This lavatory is the best lavatory I've ever been. It was really spacious, clean and it felt luxurious.
And it's super cool to see a window inside this lavatory.
In the seat pocket, I had: a sickness bag, a safety card, and an inflight magazine of Bamboo Airways named LOOK.

Views from my window during the flight.
In the remaining time of the flight, I tried the relax mode of the seat by raising the leg rest.
It wasn't much but it certainly bought more relaxation while sitting.
After about 1 hour and 15 minutes in the air, the aircraft started to descend and prepared for landing.
My journey had ended at Domestic Terminal, Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City. Thank you for reading and watching, and see you in the next report :D
The check-in procedure was a bit slow and time consuming due to the high volume of passengers. The interior included the lavatory were super gorgeous, and the seat was really awesome & comfortable to sit on. The flight departed and arrived on time. The sandwich was decent. It was a bit dried but not that bad, and it's better than nothing. The crews on this flight were nice, but not the best Bamboo Airways' crews I've experienced. They could be better. Overall, this time I had a comfortable flight and enjoyable experience with Bamboo Airways. With just $7 upgrade to Premium Economy, it's totally worth with the price to get more comfort, especially on long-haul flights.
