Always a pleasure to fly in the turbo-prop ATR's. Cabin crew always polite interesting snacks on the Vientiane- Hanoi run and the particularly delightful and free Lao Beer. Sometimes a bit difficult to understand the accent of the flight crew. Great at check-in and immigration due to the small number of passengers carried on the aircraft certainly avoids the long waits experienced on the jets. It's an interesting and most pleasant experience and I do not hesitate to recommend Laos Airlines to travellers on the short haul flights. Definitely my favourite way to go between Laos and Vietnam and for domestic flights within Laos.
