Vietnam Airlines have designed their Business Class cabin facilities to create a space where passengers can be productive whilst also experiencing an enjoyable and interesting flight. The specifics of the Business Class cabin differ depending on the model of the aircraft, however, across the entire fleet of aircrafts, the airline provide their premium Business Class passengers with exceptional service in every aspect of their product offering.
The main difference for the airline’s Business Class cabins can be found in the seating arrangements and specifications; on board the airline’s Boeing 777 Business Class seats, Business Class passengers will be given the privilege of flying in seats which offer a greater recline. The seat pitch measures a total of 59 inches and each seat is able to recline to a 156 degree angle. This enables each passenger to have maximum leg room and as a result, additional comfort. These aircrafts are used on the airline’s long-haul flights that operate within Europe to destinations including Russia, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
The alternative option is the Airbus A330 aircrafts which are used on both long-haul and medium-haul flights for the airline to destinations including South Korea, Australia and Japan. These seats have a larger pitch of 62 inches but recline slightly less at a 153 degree angle. Nevertheless, the recliner seats still provide passengers with exceptional levels of comfort. Finally, the airline operates an Airbus A321 aircraft on selected flights to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China; on board these flights, the Business Class seats are styled to be similar to those you would find in the home. The seat pitch of these chairs differs depending on the flight and varies between 38 and 45 inches; the distance of the recline on these seats reaches a maximum of 10 inches.
Business Class passengers can feel confident that with Vietnam airlines they are stepping on board a cabin designed for work (if they are inclined to work on board the flight and not necessarily relax.) Within each of the seats, there are power supplies that allow laptops and personal electronic devices to be used throughout the flight. On board the Boeing 77 aircrafts, there are in-seat power sockets and power adaptors; the Airbus A330 aircraft on the other hand is home to power sockets which are multi-purpose.
In terms of luxury, Business Class passengers will receive blankets and pillows on a majority of the airlines flight in order to increase the comfort they are intended to experience whilst in-flight. On flights which last over 4 hours, Business Class travellers will also receive amenity kits full of products designed to refresh passengers before they land. Vietnam Airlines also offers their passengers access to telephone services in-seat; the SATCOM allows passengers to make phone calls directly from their seats and connect with colleagues, friends and family while they travel. At the moment, however, this service is only available on the Boeing 777 aircrafts.
One of the most important aspects of the Business Class service is the food; Vietnam Airlines have set their aspirations high when it comes to the quality of food and service they provide to their Business Class passengers on board their flights. Like a number of leading airlines, the carrier has collaborated with a number of leading and renowned chefs in their field – from across the globe – to create a menu that appeals to every passenger’s taste buds. The menu consists of international cuisine as well as dishes which are unique to Vietnam. To complement this, the airline also provide specially selected beverages such as coffee, champagne, wine, soft drinks, tea and whiskey to accompany meals alongside carefully created cocktails designed to tantalise the taste buds.
