Vietnam Airlines HBO/Basic Fares to/from BKK/KUL/SIN/CGK

Recommended Posts

I was looking at VN-MY flights and it appears that VN has introduced "Economy Super Lite" fares (booking class: G/P) for flights between VN and KUL, CGK, SIN, and BKK since 20 May 2019.

 

If you accidentally bought a HBO (hand-baggage only) fare, the cost to check-in a bag is pretty exorbitant:

0-5kg: USD $20

5-10kg: USD $40

 

The up fare from Basic/Super Lite fare to one that includes baggage is only USD $30.

Many legacy carriers have this kind of fare these days so that they can quote "low" fares in their advertising.

Indeed. I recently discovered that even KLM is offering HBO fares - even for long haul flights!

 

I've tried pricing a KUL-AMS-NYC flight, and it's actually RM 1K lower than when I priced it earlier this year with baggage.

Well it screws up search engines - I think they will need to refine their search algorithms sooner or later.

You are right! I didn't know a legacy European carrier would actually do that on long-haul flight to Asia!
