Reasonable layover time?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a trip from Boston to Vietnam. I will be traveling with DH (42), DS (8), DS (8), and DMIL (65) so want to make sure we have enough time for the layover which could be in either Hong Kong or Tokyo. Our bags will be checked through to the destination. Is 90 minutes enough time for these airports? I'd feel comfortable with two hours, but I think the next layover time option left would be 4+ hours.

Another question: On one leg of our trip, we'll be going from HCMC to Siem Reap then on to Hoi An via Da Nang. I'm looking at flying with Vietnam Airlines, which would connect back through HCMC again. How much time should I allow for a layover there, considering that we'd probably have to collect our bags and go back through customs?

Thanks for your help!
