Vietnam Airlines (Saigon – Hanoi)

Despite what I tell my friends, I actually do love to travel, especially on airplanes. It had been nearly 19 months since I had last been on an airplane (from Los Angeles back to Saigon via Hong Kong). At that time, I was tired of flying after being on an airplane 8 times in less than one month. Now was the time to fly again. A short little business trip to Hanoi gave me an excuse to get back on an airplane. I flew with Vietnam Airlines (My friend, Hanh, works for Vietnam Airlines), one of my favorite airlines in the World now.

  • As long as they lower their damn fares. Curse their fares!

  • Their fares are not that bad, really 🙂 You can always book online and go with Pacific Airlines and save around 1.2 million.

  • Well, I hate the Vietnam Government because my dad and relatives were killed by them. However, I like their National Flag Carrier. The Vietnam Airlines has been improved; which compares to other Asian commerical airlines. I can’t wait to see their new Boeing 787 aircrafts, and also the their expansion services to the United Kingdom and the Americas. I think they are going to have more flights to the United States when Long Thanh International Airport is completed.

  • Forgot one thing….I didn’t know you were a Marine. If you were….then Semper Fi!

  • @Henry:

    I can’t wait until they fly to the US. I think their service will be very good. I flew recently with Eva Air to Seattle from Saigon. Service was good but I think Vietnam Airlines would make the long flight more comfortable.

    Semper Fi to you too 🙂
