Let's head to departure hall of Vietjet Air at the terminal.

Departure hall, which was pretty crowded at that time.

Today, I would fly on flight VJ190 to Hanoi, and the estimated departure time would be 2.05 pm.

I already did online check-in, so I went directly to security check.

Security check was fast, and 5 minutes later, I got into airside.

Now let's go to departure gate of this flight.

Here was the departure gate of this flight: gate 21, and this is the bus gate.

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

This was the aircraft for today's flight, which was an Airbus A320 with the registration of VN-A691, and it was 9.5 years old. It's pretty interesting to see this plane doesn't have Vietjet Air's livery.

Boarding

Here was my seat on this flight: seat 16A.


photo screenshot_20200514_192016-63457

Legroom was quite decent, and not a problem to me on this flight.

25 minutes after boarding, the aircraft started to pushback and taxied to the runway.

Take-off



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

In the menu, there are plentiful of hot meals plus snacks and drinks to choose. Some hot meals are available to pre-order online, but I always ask the crew 1st to know if other hot meals options are available onboard.

15 minutes after take-off, buy-on-board services were started.


photo screenshot_20200514_192247-82280

And these were what I bought on this flight.


photo screenshot_20200514_192257

I bought a portion of nasi lemak costs 70.000 đ (about $3)


photo screenshot_20200514_192304

For drink, I bought a box of Milo drink costs 30.000đ (over $1)


photo screenshot_20200514_192314

Nasi lemak tasted really delicious, and with Milo, it becomes such a perfect couple for an authentic Malaysian style meal.

Let's have a look at the lavatory in the back of the cabin. This lavatory was quite basic, yet really clean. Not bad for a low-cost airline.

OMG. When I got back to the seat, I saw a very disturbing scene: A foot with a sock with a hole on my armrest. Unbelievable!  


photo screenshot_20200514_192440

Good thing that I still kept a fork from the meal earlier lmao ;)


photo screenshot_20200514_192450

After nearly 90 minutes in the air, the aircraft started to descend and prepared for landing.

Conclusion

The interiors were pretty nice and decent, and the seat was not bad for this flight. The flight departed and arrived a bit late than scheduled time. The meal was my most favorite thing on this flight. It was super tasty and it reminded me to my trip to Malaysia few years ago. The cabin crews were helpful and they did their best job. In conclusion, it was an interesting and unforgettable flight with reasonable price.
