I flew with them twice when I was in SE Asia and thought they were fine. I think they've got a pretty good reputation and safety record. Laos Airlines is the one to avoid!

Lao Airlines has fully recovered from the old days - now it's quite a respected, safe and comfortable way to travel.

Vietnam Airlines is just fine for short haul service, but I would avoid them for anything long haul to Europe or Australia (just not terribly comfortable when compared to other large Asian (non-mainland Chinese) carriers). I personally travel on Asiana Air of Korea, but there are many good ones: Singapore, Cathay Pacific, Malaysia, ANA (Japan), EVA (Taiwan), Thai.

For domestic travel in Vietnam, you have your choice of 4 airlines: Vietnam Air, Jetstar Pacific, Vietjet Airlines and Air Mekong. Jetstar Pacific is the one I avoid - too many delays for me.

If you found cheap tickets then you're a miracle worker!!
I really wanted to book a ticket to Vietnam with them, but they were so expensive. Double check that you have taken into account the tax cost. Because it was £600 for me, then when the tax was added it was £900! That is a big jump!!
