Question Lao Airlines: business vs economy class?

My wife and I may fly Hanoi-Vientiane on Lao Airlines later this year. It would be on an A320. I can't find a seat map. The prices for business and economy are not that different. Is business class much better? 2x2 seating versus 3x3? More legroom? Lounge access? Other differences? I realize it's just a short flight, but am still curious. Thanks for any help.

I've only ever flown their ATRs. It looks like they do have a lounge at HAN so I would imagine that you would get access with a business class ticket.

I do note that one of the flights on this route is operated by VN. Their website looks to be fairly useless which I guess is why you're asking here. Maybe try to send them an email?

Pardon my directness, but after about 10 seconds of Googling, I found these. Are these not what you're looking for?

Oh my. I checked the airline's site and somehow missed that. Your directness is indeed pardoned. Thanks very much.

We know what the seat map means by "Businee Class." But I'm very curious to learn what the "Doghouse" is.

Ha! It seems to only be on the Type A aircraft. They don't allow pets, so that's puzzling indeed.

What is the QV on board service like on the domestic A320 domestic service? I am looking to fly VTE to LPQ in January 2020. Also is there any Lounge access on the those flights?
