I booked my flight same day to travel from Vientiane to Pakse. This airline was nearly 3 times cheaper than its competitors and of course I was a bit dubious. However Im delighted to say I was pleasantly surprised - took off 5 mins early and landed 20 mins ahead of schedule. I also found the staff friendly and helpful...

We took the 12:00 noon flight from VTE to LPQ. Flight time was only 45 minutes. We took off exactly on time, landed exactly on time. Plane was very small, but seats were no more cramped than any other puddle jumper like this. Land and air crew were both kind enough. Luggage arrived with no problems. My only warning is...

There was absolutely no difference shwon between the first two other than 100.000 kips. We went with the cheapest, got the confirmation email. (No online check-in available but that's no bother). The flight was...

My flight, as you can see from the attachment, was scheduled for 13:30. I get to the airport and the airport is closed. I get a ride to the Laos Skyway offices and they never even said "sorry" they just simply told me that the flight was rescheduled to 10:30, and that the flight already left. I never got an...

My flight from Xiengkhoang to Vientiane on flight LK213 on 15 Oct was cancelled. The airline informed us 2 days before the flight through an email with little advice on what we can do next. We desperately tried to find a flight to Vientiane and managed to find one on Laos Airline. I enquired later about refund and was told...

Have never heard of the airline and only ended up booking as the night bus seemed very dangerous but had a very positive surprise ! Did not show on the tracker and actual time ended up 30 minutes earlier than what the ticket said but otherwise all went fine! Just get early to the airport ☺️

Took a while to get confirmation when I booked flights online and then they had the wrong month but they fixed it withing 5mins - all good. At the airport everything went smoothly, we left early on an easy flight - were served water and cookies. Would fly again using Lao Skyway.

Flew from VTE to LPQ , it was a short flight in an ATR aircraft . Was served a small butter crossiant and water . The seats did not have enough leg room . There was not enough space to keep your hand bag or briefcase under the seat . The propellers are a bit noisy . Service fair .

Check in straightforward, boarded on time. Basic service but adequate. Aircraft rather noisy but a comfortable journey overall.

After being charged twice. I finally received a refund. 45 days later. Communications and customer service were terrible, by lao standards. Being that this carrier has no competition I guess they don't need to try very hard. Flights and aeroplane staff were good. Billing services and after care. ... very lacking
