​​Vietnam Airlines Reviews

Remember when the famous violinist Jascha Heifetz said “There is no top. There are always further heights to reach.” The airline taught me that lesson too. For they dream big, reach further and climb higher which lead them to a step-by-step process to success. Take a look at how Vietnam Airlines does it.

North Vietnamese Government’s Airline

Vietnamese Airlines traces its roots when the North Vietnamese government started an aviation business as “Vietnam Civil Aviation” in January 1956 with just 5 aircrafts. 1993 marks the year when the airline’s name was changed to “Vietnam Airlines” (VNA) and it became the national flag carrier of Vietnam.

In 2002, Vietnam Airlines updated their company logo to Golden Lotus as an expression of their dramatic progress in becoming one of the world-class airlines. The airline’s company slogan “Reach further” shows a positive attitude towards improvement and growth.

Vietnam Airlines is headquartered at Noi Bai and Tan Son International Airport with a fleet size of 95 serving 52 destinations. The airline is in alliance with SkyTeam as the first Southeast Asian airline that joined the alliance. A 51-year old Vietnamese businessman, Mr. Pham Ngoc Minh, has been the president and CEO of Vietnam Airlines since June 2013.

Golden Lotus Services

VNA caters three kinds of services: Economy, Deluxe Economy and Business Class served with palatable famous Vietnamese dishes by selected chefs and a choice of European or Australian cuisines. Wines and juices are also provided.

For entertainment the airlines provides similar in-seat entertainment with a wide range of movies, TV shows, music, books and games. For customers who are more comfortable with manual entertainment inflight magazines are offered as well.

The airlines also provides safety measures for customers who easily get stiff over long haul flights and hours sitting. The airlines has this service called Inflight Health, where customers are educated about some exercises that will be effective to ease pain and discomfort.

Vietnam Airlines Reviews of Passengers

Reading several Vietnam Airlines reviews, there are mixed comments from passengers but most are praises. One reviewer said when she flew with them, the flight left on time and arrived minutes early. Cold towels were distributed before take off and hot towels after his snack. He even noted that the flight attendants are friendly and attentive. However not enough legroom was his only concern as a business class passenger.

Other Vietnam Airlines reviews are much appreciative with the efficiency of the service from check-in to boarding and noticeably professional flight attendants and good meals.

  1. Flight time changed 5 times. Booked a 10 am flight that finally departed at 4pm. Upgraded to Business class using “Optiontown”. Very easy but did not include lounge access. The service was excellent the snack was more like a meal. The A321 was a little tired seat comfortable but a little worn and there was no inflight entertainment.
