Is 2 domestic flights on one day realistic?

Hello.

We have booked a spontaneous holiday deal in Phu Quoc in August. We are a family of 4 (2 kids aged 2 and 5) and we will be travelling from Da Nang to get there.

We will be flying DAD-SGN then SGN-PQC.

We have selected Dep DAD 08:35 arr SGN 10:15

Then there are 4 options to depart SGN 12:55, 15:50, 17:45 and 17:50

I am inclined to book the flight departing15:50 but is even that cutting it too fine?

Your feedback is much appreciated

If it was me I'd take the 15.50 ..you are already in the domestic terminal...others might think differently.

Did you book with Vietnam airlines? They are rarely delay except bad weather so it is fine to connect flight at 15:50. Even I may choose flight at 12:55 to save time because you are on the same domestic area, also only one hour for flight from HCM - Phu Quoc

Can you not book it on the one ticket with Vietnam Airlines?

That way they'll look after you if your first flight is delayed.

Yes , book it through as one flight with one airline. Vietnam Airlines held up a Hanoi to Hcmc flight so the passengers on another of their flights that was running late could make it when I was on it.

Thank you everyone for your advice. I have bought the journey as one ticket flying with Vietnam Airlines DEP DAD 06:50 ARR PCQ 10:25 going via SGN with 01h05m stopover.

This is the computer generated offer so we are the responsibility of the airline to get there. Will post how we go. Thanks again.
