Check-in procedure and health declaration check were all cleared. Now I went to security check area.

I got a small bottle of water and a refreshing tissue only. Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam Airlines had suspended serving food and snacks on their flights.

The check-in process was efficient, and I'm really impressed with the strict health check process. It made me feel safer when flying. The interiors were quite clean and were not seem outdated. Also, the flight departed on time and arrived sooner than estimated time. There was no snack on this flight due to the coronavirus, which was fine at that time. The crews also did a great job on this flight. Overall, the flight was uneventful and nothing much happened, but more importantly, it feels great to be able to fly again. I'm also fascinated with all the measures and how people practiced them responsibility to prevent the spread of coronavirus in society.
