Pros: The crew was nice and reply promptly. They provide water/juice and snacks several times besides the main meals.

Cons: It was confusing to do online checking because I couldn't check in on Vietnam airline website. The airplane was old and had bad smells.

Okay 5.6

Pros: Food was slightly better than the previous flight.

Cons: Same lousy headphones. My seat had a led rest that made it harder to get in and out, and wasnt usable due to the close distance to the seat in front. What was the designer thinking? I missed the drink service if there was one, never saw water going around until right at the end. . .

Good 6.6

Pros: Movies were great. Service to accommodate us (hotels, food vouchers etc.) was great!

Cons: The delay... it’s no one fault but it took up a lot of people’s time. It was frustrating the domino effect of pushing the flight later. I felt terrible for those who only had two weeks and lost two days!

SFO
TPE
Okay 5.0

Pros: Great check-in with Weimao, if I remember right. Got through security fairly quickly. Boarding was fine, a long way to the back . . .

Cons: The worst earphones I’ve ever used. They fell out at least 100 times while trying to watch Dumbo. There seemed to be reasonably good programming, but I wasn’t going to continue with those earphones. My ears were sore after trying many ways to get them to stay in my ears.

Pros: I was stopped at gate check in and taken to one side as passport security had reported that I was intoxicated. I was badly injured in the armed forces and have lost my hearing which affects my balance. I asked for an aisle seat as I'm a big guy as s personal trainer. But was given seat E. Next to a huge obese guy. He slept whole journey, must of had nightmares and jumped and banged me repeatadly. I had the first meal, which was not great but edible. I couldn't eat it properly as I couldn't move my left arm due to the blob Sat next to me. I asked the stewardess to wake me at the meal times so I could get more food. She didn't. Not once. I couldn't even get out the seat to go toilet or get any of the help yourself stuff outside the toilets due to the fat blob I was put next too. Totally disgusted with the whole flight and crew when everytime I've used the same company before it was excellent.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
