Instead of a 12 hours bus journey opted for a (more expensive) 1 hour flight. It was absolutely worth it. - Boarding was extremely quick (major airlines should take this as an example) and took maximum of 10-15 minutes. Free seating. After everyone sat down plane immediately moved to runway for takeoff - Inflight snack (cake, pain au chocolat &...

We flew with Air KBZ from Yangon to Nyaung-U and later to Heho. I booked the tickets a couple of months in advance on the Air KBZ website with my U.S. credit card. I had absolutely no problems. Flights were mostly on time (one minor 15 minute delay) and the service was fine. Can't say much for the snack served,...

Check-in was swift: they took our passports and made photocopies of it, then proceeded to issue tickets and give us the relevant flight stickers. It's a bit of a leap of faith to trust the person who handles your baggage to get it onboard the plane. There are no conveyor belts to carry your luggage to the holding area. Boarding...

One of the many Myanmar internal air companies (we must have tried them all over the years). Like all the others do not expect too much: they are usually short flights with ATR's, and do a lot of airport hopping. Staff was very pleasant, even though it is always a long day for them. On each stretch you get water...

We flew from Yangon to Heho (inle Lake) to Nyaung-U (Bagan) to Yangon on Air KBZ. The planes (same plane?) were new and spotless inside with comfortable seats. Flights were on time. Boarding and deplaning were handled efficiently. Snacks or sandwiches were served. Could not ask for more.

+ the flight felt relatively safe + newer planes + departed way ahead of schedule - expensive airfares (common to all Myanmar airlines) vs other Asian airlines Boarding was an entirely new experience for me! There were no signs announcing if your flight is already boarding - they only rely on ground staff to spot tiny circular stickers on your...

The airlines in Myanmar are all a little questionably in terms of safety and training etc but KBZ is one of the bigger airlines and technically is more likely to have spent more time and expertise on safety... one would think. The flight was uneventful although as this flight visits Bagan and Mandalay before returning to Yangon - not overly...

The air steward English we can understand 50%, the other 50% his sound like just bla bla never pronounce clearly. May be he not even know what he is talking. The plan is clean but no reading material.
