Flight Review: QH88 SGN-MEL on Bamboo Airways Business Class

This is the return journey from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne on Bamboo Airways Business Class. My journey began at Tan Son Nhat International Airport just over three hours before the evening departure of QH88. I arrived at the airport a little too early hoping that the check-in desks would be open at least 3.5 hours before departure but I was wrong, it would only open 3 hours prior. However, there was already quite a line of economy passengers awaiting the desks to open, and premium passengers were still waiting for the EVA Airlines staff to clear out their stations to make way for the Bamboo Airlines team to take over.

After check-in, I proceeded through immigration and security which took quite a while due to the peak hour at the airport. I then went straight to the Le Saigonnais Lounge on the first floor.

Boarding promptly started about 50 minutes before departure and I joined the premium queue to be one of the first to board. Upon boarding, I was promptly shown to my seat where a cold towel was awaiting along with an amenity kit, headsets and a very comfortable blanket!

Service on this flight was very efficient and friendly. Catering might not have been a Michelin starred affair but was delicious.

Bamboo Airways does offer very competitive fares and for the fare, I would absolutely fly with them again!
