Hi guys. Welcome to my next report on Flight-Report. Today, I will fly with Vietnam Airlines from Hanoi to Buon Ma Thuot on Airbus A321neo. 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 subscribing 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.
Departure hall of the terminal
Today, I would fly on flight VN1603 to Buon Ma Thuot, and the estimated departure time would be 10.30 am.
Check-in counters for this flight.
To save time, I decided to get my boarding pass at the self check-in kiosk.
After that, I went straight to the security check area.
About 10 minutes later, the security check was cleared and I finally got into airside.
Time to head to the departure gate for this flight right now.
Here was the departure gate of this flight: gate 9.
Boarding was called, then I went downstairs and got on the bus to get to the aircraft.
Let's just stay here and wait a bit for the bus to arrive.
This was the aircraft for today's flight.
This Airbus A321neo has the registration of VN-A625, and it was 1.2 years old.
Here was my seat on this flight: seat 27G.
Legroom was pretty large and decent like on other A321neos of Vietnam Airlines.
View from my window, and cabin view from my seat.
About 20 minutes after boarding, the aircraft started to pushback and taxied to the runway.
Safety video was screened during that time.
10 minutes after take-off, snacks and drinks were served.
Here was the snack box that I received.
I had a packet of dried meat floss soft waffle.
And another package of buttermilk biscuit sticks.
For drink, I got a small bottle of water.
To be honest, these snacks tasted quite good and they aren't so bad for a short flight like this. But I like the waffle more :)
View from my window, and cabin view from my seat during the flight.
In the seat pocket, I had: A sickness bad, a safety card, and an inflight magazine of Vietnam Airlines named Heritage.
The wireless entertainment system was available on this aircraft. Check out my old report to see what it's like (https://flight-report.com/en/report/47191/vietnam-airlines-vn1262-ho-chi-minh-city-sgn-vinh-vii)
After over an hour in the air, the aircraft started to descend and prepared for landing.
All the passengers would have to walk to the terminal instead of taking buses.
As you can hear in the video, the airport was really windy at that time.
My journey had ended at Buon Ma Thuot International Airport, Buon Ma Thuot, Dak Lak Province. Thank you for reading and watching, and see you in the next report :D
The check-in process was fast and efficient thanks to the self check-in kiosk. The interiors on this aircraft were new and modern, also, the seat was very comfortable with wide legroom. The flight departed and arrived on time. Like I said, the snacks tasted pretty decent and it isn't a bad option for a short flight like this one. The crews were nice and stayed professional throughout the flight. Overall, this was such an enjoyable and comfortable flight, and it feels great to be on A321neo of Vietnam Airlines after a while.
