I feel like this is a dream because there is almost no chance for us to be back home in this period. Through this arduous journey back, I would like to thank the support of the Government and the Embassies of Vietnam in Egypt and Kuwait, as well as Bamboo Airways”, said Ms. Duong Thu Hang (36 years old, Hanoi) – one of the four passengers stuck in Egypt.
