And here is the script report. Hope you guys will enjoy :D

Heading to the check-in counter for this flight.

Here was actually the original flight that I booked: flight 0V8074. However, it was delayed 3 times from 12:45 to 13:05, then 13:30, then 15:30. Then at the 4th time, that flight was canceled and I was switched to flight 0V8070, which departed at 13:30. I was really frustrated and annoyed to get delays continuously :(
Check-in was done, then I went to the security check area.
About 5 minutes later, the security check was cleared and I finally got into airside.
Time to go to the departure gate of this flight.
Here was the departure gate of this flight: gate 8.
Boarding was called, then I went downstairs and got on the bus to get to the aircraft.
This was the aircraft for this flight.
This ATR 72 has the registration of VN-B218, and it was 11.2 years old.
Here was my seat on this flight: seat 7D.
Legroom was pretty impressively decent for this aircraft.
View from my window, and cabin view from my seat.
Refreshing tissue was handed out before departure.
About 10 minutes after boarding, the aircraft started to pushback and taxi to the runway.
5 minutes after take-off, drinks were served. There were 2 choices of drinks on this flight: water and coke.
And I asked for a cup of coke.
View from my window, and cabin view from my seat during the flight.
In the seat pocket, I had: a sickness bag, a safety card, and an inflight magazine of Vietnam Airlines called Heritage Fashion.
The seat was loose, and I can even use my hand to recline the seat.
Nearly 30 minutes after take-off, the plane started to descend and prepared for landing.
My journey had ended at Con Dao Airport, Con Dao Island, Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province. Thank you for reading and watching, and see you in the next report :D
The check-in process was a little bit time-consuming. But the most disappointing thing on this trip was the delays just like my last inbound flight and the total delayed time was 45 minutes. The interiors were super old and downgraded, especially the seat. The flight was short so there wasn't much in terms of inflight service. And the crews were nice and hospitable. In conclusion, like the last inbound flight, this flight was decent, but the delays before the flight were just bad and unpleasant.
