Arriving from CKS just before 1pm there was virtually no wait getting through immigration (perhaps because I was one of the first off the plane) or in collecting my luggage. The pre-paid taxi stand was a deal: US$7 to central Saigon with the clerk walking me to the cab. Check-in at EVA Air business class counter a breeze. I waited for long lines to disappear before heading to emigration and whisked through the two control points both times (SGN-PNH and SGN-CKS). The 1st/business lounge is comfortable with a decent selection of snacks and drinks and an enclosed smoking section. SGN certainly beats the dickens out of SFO and most other US airports.
