I'm trying to plan a short trip to Vietnam in October. How does the on time/cancellation performance compare between Vietnam Airlines, VietJet and Jetstar Pacific compare?
Specifically, I'm looking at the Saigon to Hue and Danang routes. Hue airport is closed for maintenance until 19 September. Any issues with early October? It's loaded back in with Vietnam Airlines and VietJet, but not with Jetstar.
My preference is to fly Jetstar due to voucher credit. I need to fly from either Kuala Lumpur or Singapore to Vietnam, but unfortunately only the prohibitively expensive SilkAir flies to Danang. I can't seem to get through tickets to Danang or Hue without out of the way routings (eg China) which are too expensive. Looking at the timetables it's possible to do something fly with AirAsia from KUL to SGN, then have a layover (say between 4 - 12 hours!) before flying onwards to Hue with VN. Does this sound sensible? Our time is very limited.
Edit: Any advice about trustworthy tour organisers for the Hue - Hoi An section would be welcome. Prefer to organise it in Australia.
