After flying from London to Tp. HCM, I will transit more than 2 hours here before returning to Hanoi. On the flight from Tp. Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, I have booked a special meal service because this flight does not fly at the time of serving hot meals (fly at 8:30, land more than 10 hours), so I want to compare the quality between the Special meals and snack services are usually served on flights at this time.

Because boarding passes are available for flights from Ho Chi Minh City. Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, I just need to exit at the international terminal, then walk to the domestic terminal and through the security checkpoint to enter the waiting area.
At the domestic terminal of Tan Son Nhat airport, there are many options for breakfast, I choose to eat at Burger King because there is no access to Le Saigonnais lounge and the price here is not too expensive.
After finishing the meal and walking around the station to wake up after awaking 11 hours earlier, it was time to leave. In this flight, passengers will take the bus, and the operating plane is also a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, with 28 business class seats arranged in 1-2-1 configuration, 35 special economy seats with configuration Figure 2-3-2, and 211 economy class seats with 3-3-3 configuration. This is also the plane that took me from London to Saigon. This time I took seat 20A, closer to the front of the aircraft than the previous seat was 31A.
Because this flight flies at 8:30 am and lands at 10am more, passengers will not be served hot meals. Therefore, I have booked a special meal to compare with the snack service on this flight.

The plane is taking off and is about to reach its altitude so that catering services can be served.
Now the plane has flown, because I had booked a special meal in advance so I was served first. The flight attendant will check the seat number before distributing the food.
The type I choose for this flight is a Western vegetarian meal. This is a meal for those who do not eat fish, meat of all kinds but can eat eggs, milk and egg products and milk.
Meals include a sandwich with cheese, eggs, cucumbers and tomatoes. Attached to this small cake is a box of mineral water.
I think this special meal is more quality, more nutritious and less dry than a snack service including egg custard and tomato sticks on the same flight. Although this sandwich is quite small compared to a 1 hour and 45 minute flight, in general, I rate this meal higher than normal service because of the superior quality.
Regular snack service is served on this flight.
In addition, the flight attendant serves two types of drinking water, stream and coca, I choose coca.
For the rest of the flight, I took advantage of the next episodes in the Genius series that I watched badly from the previous flight. After watching the episode, the aircraft began to reduce altitude to land at Noi Bai airport. Right now I'm almost dozing off because I've been up all 20 hours before – from waking up to get ready at the British summer camp to the middle of this flight, and just waking up when the plane is about 5 minutes.
The aircraft landed in Hanoi in hot and foggy weather. After landing, I went to the carousel area, took my luggage and went home. This is the last of 7 videos about my flight and travel experiences when I went to a 2-week summer camp in the UK.
