Vietnam Airlines Domestic Business Class Lounge: Ho Chi Minh Airport

by | Jul 5, 2016 | Flights and Lounges

Our week in Vietnam was in full swing and it was time to fly from Ho Chi Minh to Hue so we could check out Hue, the Hai Van Pass and Hoi An on our travels. Our Vietnam Airlines Business Class tickets allowed us access to the Vietnam Airlines Ho Chi Minh Lounge in the Domestic Terminal and we settled down for some pre flight rest and relaxation before our adventure began!

After a quick check in at the business class counter we made our way to the lounge. The Vietnam Airlines Lounge in Ho Chi Minh is relatively low key and mainly consists of a long room filled with rows of armchairs. A food counter, bar, some massage chairs and a business center complete the setup.

Food and Drinks

Some fresh snacks and basic packaged and add water food options are provided on a food table in the center of the lounge. On the day we visited the options included a rice and noodle dish as well as sliced bread, meat and vegetable crudites. A microwave is available to heat the food.

Wi-fi is available throughout the lounge and there is a small business center with a bank of desktop computers and printing facilities.

While it’s always great to have a lounge to hang out in pre boarding the Vietnam Airlines Domestic Business Class Lounge is a fairy basic offering. The decor is tired and worn and in need of a face lift. The food offerings are basic and slightly lacking in appeal although the range of options are in line with what we’d expect from a domestic lounge offering. Still, it’s a nice escape from the madness of the airport outside its doors!
