Which flight to choose when there only 3 on the day

Hi, we are flying from Hanoi to Nha Trang - 3 of us - and I am about to book the internal flight - we have 3 options to choose from - 9.50 am, 12.05pm or 13.45pm being the last for the day. Is it too risky to book the last flight for the day in case of cancellation of this flight - not sure if Vietnam airlines often cancel their flights or not, thank you - we are flying in August. thank you

I always try to book the first flight and certainly not the last. It increases my chances of actually getting to fly that day if the weather is bad or if my flight will be delayed or cancelled.

One problem that I encountered when I booked Vietnam airlines flights months before was that they kept changing their itinerary. I don't think their flights for August will be finalised in January.

Finally my flights were so different that I had to pay cancellation fee and rebook at a later date.

Book any airline, the 12.05 fli6sounds good, you don't have to get up to early, you can have breakfast. You will arrive at a good time to check in to your next hotel.
