Vietnam Airlines has pulled back the curtain on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, the first of which will begin flying later this year alongside the Airbus A350.
The SkyTeam alliance member will add eight of the next-gen jets to its fleet, with London tipped for the first international flights from mid-year.
(Despite what this promotional photo suggests, Boeing 787 flights into outer space are not yet scheduled.)
The seatmap reveals a standard three-class layout with no surprises.
Business class on Vietnam Airlines' Boeing 787-9 is certainly a safe bet, with 28 of the popular Zodiac Cirrus seat which are also used by Cathay Pacific, American Airlines and Air France.
That means direct aisle access for every passenger, a pleasing mix of open design and per-passenger privacy, plenty of legroom and space for your carry-on kit plus a long fully flat bed.
There are 35 premium economy seats arranged in a 2-3-2 layout.
Down the back of the bus, the economy cabin adopts a common 3-3-3 layout.
