Flew with Vietjet Air a couple of times inside Vietnam a year ago, no problems.

I don't like ice in beer either, but the beer must be ice cold. I prefer Jack and soda and must have plenty of ice, not just one cube as so many Eurps seem to like --go figure. However, I am a Yank and we know the formula.

Oh dear. Just when I thought you were a rational member of the human race, you had to reveal your nationality.:sorry:

You mean you are still under the impression people can be rational? Tsk, tsk. Stick around, pay attention, and you may learn something.

My niece and friends used it two weeks ago from CR to Phuket and said all good and so quick compared with Nok or Air Asia because direct. It's a very nice addition to our flts up here in CR in my opinion.

I flew VietJet Bangkok-Hanoi and back a couple of years back. No problem at all. Friendly service, unbeatable prices, new planes, and right on time. Since they set up as Thai Vietjet, I've flown Chiang Mai to Bangkok numerous times. Never once late (give or take 10-15 minutes here or there). Just bought another CNX-BKK trip for next month for THB 1,800 ($55) RT. Two gripes: 1) they did retime a flight once but gave plenty of warning, and 2) their website is a bit clunky and not always up to scratch. But then, have you tried using Air Asia's lately, which no longer offers the option of booking RT tickets, only OW? And don't forget Thai Vietjet flies into BKK, not the DMK hellhole out in the sticks, which means a train link to Bangkok and plenty of connections.

I have just booked two return tickets today with Air Asia, one domestic and one international, both return so I am confused by your post?

You can book round trip tickets on the website, but it appears it has been modified and is tricky.  For the return date, it says "one way" but you can click on that and select the date.  They need to fix that.

I've now used them about 11 times in the past year to Saigon return. No problems except once the plane was 30 minutes late. Decent airline at a decent price. Last month they had a sale and return SGN to Yangon was B3000 (compared to SGN to BKK B6000) so they have some decent offers.

I tried to fly by VietJet to Bangkok a couple of months ago. Always used AirAsia, Thai Airways and BKK Airways before. So I arrived to check-in counter 52 min before flight (because I spent 20 minutes a night before flight trying to checkin online and I didn't  find a way how to do it).

So guy on a counter just said that check-in time is finished and he can do nothing with it. I tried to ask him where I can see airlines rules and he answered of course - go to our website. The problem for me was I had important meeting in BKK that morning. But VietJet staff refused me to pass check-in 50 min before flight. So I came back home. And my plane still was at the boarding gate for 40 minutes more)

At the same time I always arrive at the airport 45-50 min before my flights to BKK by another airlines and I never had any problems with that for 8 years (my house just in 5 minutes from airport). So guys, just be careful with their check-in policy) and good luck.

Forget the personal reviews here the only logical assessment of an airline should be from airlineratings with a dot com. 

And the only logical consideration should be safety full stop. Would you put service before safety,,, I don't think so.

Unfortunately this airline has only 2 stars for safety. Good luck with and have a safe journey. 

The actual safety rating for VietJet on the website you mentioned is 6 out of 7, which is pretty good. The 2 star is a product rating, nothing to do with safety - https://www.airlineratings.com/ratings/vietjet-air/

 

I flew with them earlier this year BKK-CM and everything went fine.
