As a world-class airline, Vietnam Airlines owns the latest models of high-standard Boeing and Airbus aircraft. Part of SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, Vietnam Airlines has been awarded the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) and the SkyTrax 4-Star Airlines certificate. With three seat classes, Vietnam Airlines is ready to take its passengers to 21 domestic and 28 international destinations.

Vietnam Airlines Seat Class

Economy Class

With comfort in mind, the airline’s Economy Class offers comfortable seats with a 32-inch pitch. Each seat can recline up to 6 inches and comes with basic needs, such as a pillow, a blanket, and premium toiletries. In-flight entertainment is provided on the screen in front of them. Passengers are also welcomed to request for other amenities such as eye-masks and “Don’t disturb me” or “Wake me up for meal” stickers.

In-flight Meal

Passengers in the Economy Class can enjoy a variety of meal ranging from soup and baked rolls, to fried fish and braised beef. Vietnam Airlines also caters to passengers’ dietary restrictions, offering vegetarian, kids, and health-related meals among others. Passengers needing this special menu must order their meal at least 24 hours before the flight.

Premium Economy Class

Vietnam Airlines’ Premium Economy Class is equipped with a comfortable seat with a pitch between 38 to 42 inches which reclines from 7 to 8 inches. The seats come with private reading lights, large overhead compartment for storage, and various in-flight entertainment. Premium Economy Class passengers are provided with extra on-ground services, such as assistance when selecting their seats, priority in baggage handling, priority during check-in, and priority in boarding the flight.

In-flight Meal

During the flight, Premium Economy Class offers a complete menu from main courses like stir-fry meat with vegetables and rice, to simple desserts like biscuits, chocolate cake, fruits, and bread. Besides the meals, passengers can also enjoy different selections of snacks, such as sandwiches, cup-noodles, and bread, and a variety of beverages.

Business Class

Business Class provides priority ground services such as check-in at the Business counter, priority baggage handling, and access to the Lotus Lounge before the flight. During the flight, passengers will get to enjoy a special modern seat that can be converted into a comfortable bed. Passengers can also keep themselves entertained with a variety of music, interactive games, updated movie list, in-house magazines (Heritage and Heritage Fashion), and daily newspaper.

In-flight Meal

Vietnam Airlines In-flight Crew

In March 2015, Vietnam Airlines introduced its new flight attendant uniform with two different colors: yellow for Business Class and light blue for Economy Class. The uniform is a redesigned traditional Vietnamese clothes—an attractive tunic worn over silky white trousers named Ao Dai. The long slit on both sides of the garment makes it comfortable to wear, making it easier for the flight attendants to move around the cabin as they tend to the passengers’ needs.
