Pacific Airlines

Hello,

Has anyone flown with Pacific Airlines from Saigon to Hanoi? We are looking to book this as it is cheaper than Vietnam Airlines (and you can book online) but I wanted to know if anyone has had any bad experiences or would caution against it.

Thanks in advance

Scott

Hi getcha

Flew with them last year and the flight was OK except the decided to land in the middle of a storm and had to abort the landing-a bit hair raising and obviously not a wise decision to have been made in the first place.

Planes a bit old and flights usually very packed and colourful.

All that said that I am flying with them again this march SGN-DAD.It is just so much more convenient to be able to book flights over the internet to fit into your schedule before you leave.

Unfortunately, at present, you can not do this with Vietnam Airlines where you need to organiser flights via a travel agency in vietnam via email before you leave or wait until you arrive there.During peak times you may not be able to fly on the desired date and time to fit into your schedule.

Hi, We travelled with them last June and it was way more convenient having everything organised ahead of time. They emailed us while we were travelling with any changes to flights etc. and we were happy with the service we received for the price. Cheers

Just got back from Vietnam flew with Pacific 3 times with no problems at all. Always left / arrived on time. Booking on line is the cheapest way to go, we tried a few travel agencies in Vietnam and they just get the price off the internet and add their commission. In fact the flight to Nha Trang on Pacific is a jet (737) as compared with Vietnam Airlines which is a prop plane.
