Proflight times, good seating

Conscould be more toilets on the Boeing 767 of RBA

Flew with Royal Brunei in August 2007 from London to Brunei and return. Check in at Heathrow handled by Aviance well organised. They also have some of their own staff in RBA uniform handling the operation alongside Aviance. I got a fast track through security however the queues looked very long...

I was interested to read other opinions on Royal Brunei Airlines and thought that I would add mine as I was most impressed by them. I was due to fly to Oz from London in April and having travelled economy Down Under previously I said to myself never again! I decided to treat myself for once and...

ConsSmall aircraft, basic service

I flew between London and Perth (Western Australia) in April 2000 and used Royal Brunei as the carrier. Admittedly my only criteria in booking with them were a) the price of the ticket - which was substantially lower than anything else available at the time; b) the schedule - the timing of the...

“RBA: Improving All the Time!”

published 26/06/2000

ProModern fleet

ConsLimited route network

I have flown on Royal Brunei Airlines four times on the Kuala Lumpur - Bandar Seri Bagawan and Bandar Seri Bagawan Miri sectors. and also from BSB to Kota Kinabalu. The RBA fleet is a modern one and I found it to be a punctual airline. I was also impressed with the ground services at Bandar seri...

Satisfactory

ProThey fly to Brunei

ConsThey are not cheap, but act like a budget airline.

The other day I flew from Perth to Brunei & the staff told us a new policy had been put in place which took effect on 1 Jan 2009. The policy strictly enforced the 20kg check-in baggage rule. Although 20kg has always been the standard check-in allowance, every other airline accepts a kg or two...

ProVery Cheap, Crew V Helpful & Friendly, Good Food

ConsNo booze served, Brunei Airport is dull

I travelled to Australia to see my old school friend who had just popped out her 2nd baby.. I'm a nervous flyer at the best of times and the longest flight I'd ever done was 7 hours! I was dreading doing all of this on my own! However, I should never have worried. The crew were so friendly and...

“Local Airlines Flies High”

published 17/07/2000

ProCheap cost

ConsEntertainment facilities could be better

Royal Brunei Airlines is really a little local airline serving the country of Brunei but with an ever expanding global service. The Brunei - Dubai - London route must be one of its most popular international route with departures once every day of the week. In addition to that it is also one of...

I went on Royal Brunei Airlines flying from London to dubai. At least I thought that I was going to Dubai instead they told us just before we left that we would be going to Abu Dhabi instead, this was to do with Royal Brunei. I did not really find the trip that enjoyable because the seats were...

Not for me

published 27/09/2007

I checked in Singapore for a Dubai flight (stopover in Brunei). Someone (must be the handling staff) opened our checked in bags and stole a Digital camera, MP3 player and an expensive watch. Royal Brunei could be less bothered and they were clearly hoping I would get frustrated and stop following up on my complaint (in which they succeeded !) In the end, I dont think I have any recourse so YOU be careful

ProGood seat pitch

Consold aircraft, no alcohol

Travelled out from London to Dubai and then onto Brunei - 15 hours of flying in total. There was a 90 minute layover in Dubai, which is not quite enough time to make use of the excellent shopping facilities. Travelled on a Boeing 767 which is good as far as the 2-3-2 seat configuration goes. The...
