    Direct flights are always great. Good to see Vietnam adding more of them to various countries.

    I have waited this for too long. Vietnam is behind Philippines, the largest market for O&D flight from USA. USA has a big Vietnamese diaspora.

    Currently, this market is being monopolized by NE Asian airlines, as they are geographically far more advantage in conducting such mission.

    The advent of A350 especiallyy the ULR version changes the landscape completely.

    Vietnam has potential to be a transfer hub for USA passenger to access SE Asia destiniation.

    Yes we are late to the party, but with the new planes, we will offer the customers with more comfort, cheaper prizes and best food. Also I believe the new fleet of Boeing 787-10 Vietnam Airlines is to receive will be the perfect trip to the US.

    HCM LA can support 3x daily flight. HCM San Francisco 2x daily flight. HCM Houston, HCM New York, and HCM DC can support 1x daily flight.

    It will take many more years for HCM Houston and HCM DC to materialized. Such non stop Ultra long haul flight make sense only if there are premium traffic.

    The other solution is to use Hanoi as a hub to fly to DC, New York or Houston.

    Vietnam should invest more in advertising and promoting, more in service and infrastructure, more visa free countries. But ok our folks in America should use Vietnam Airlines instead of other airlines, the company just needs to put an attractive offer on the table.

    San Jose, San Diego, Houston and Los Angeles greater area are a good start as majority of Vietnamese have homes there.

    Any reason you are going for both rather than committing to just one? I suspect it has to do with the order backlog for the big 2....these are both very popular a/c right now to replace older ones.

    Welcome back, why had you banned? Well why different models? has to do with trade balance and politics. not a coincidence that Vietnam Airlines uses Airbus for flights bound to Europe and Boeing for Asia although both have similar specs. Vietnam airlines looks for a long range aircraft for direct flight to the US. a bird that can stay 16 hours midair and travels at least 13,000 km. Boeing 777x is a good candidate.
