Vietnam Airlines Launches Tickets Without Free Baggage Allowance

Besides this, these tickets are only applied to flights departing before 6am and after 9pm, from November 20.

Earlier, disputes among local airlines over ways of quoting airfares without including taxes and fees on its website, causing misunderstandings among customers and affecting the carrier's competitiveness on the local market.
Vietnam Airlines denounced Vietjet for publishing airfares without including taxes and fees on its website, causing misunderstading among customers and affecting the carrier's competitiveness on the local market.
However, a representative of local low-cost carrier Vietjet stated that if it lists airfares inclusive of taxes and fees on its website, this does not ensure transparency as customers will not see a breakdown of the airfare.
In addition, passengers will also have to pay for services such as meals and checked baggage, which many of them do not need.
