The plane that was shceduled for the flight was a Chaina Airlines plane and when we arrived on the runway to board the plane ... i've never heard as many worried passengers asking questiuons to whether this plane was going to Saigon/ Ho Chi Minh City or Beijing!! They really didn't have any faith in the small airport in Danang!!
Our flight was uneventful overall. We did get the now customary light lunch on the plane and again it turned out to be a welcome treat! The only other exciting thing that i thought was the fact that this was the first plane I had been on that had an inflight phone!! It was another kodak moment!! Oh ... the other thing I forgot to mention was part of the take off ..... when we were waiting for take off ... there were Vietnamese Jet Fighters taking off from the same airport. One just before we left and then i did manage to get a picture of one of them taxing out just after we took of!
To be continued later!
