Default Royal Brunei Air?

Has anyone been brave enough to try them? They fly non-stop from Dubai to Heathrow for just over GBP400 in October. Yes I know they don't supply alcohol but for a 6hr non-holiday flight (ie.alone), are they worth a flutter?

Been on the flight twice and found them excellent, apart from the booze, but you can take your own on board from duty free!!!!!!!!

I flew a few times with them a few years back and they were decent. The in-laws fly with them regularly to here and they are always happy with the flight.

The only problem I had was the time when their flight arrived at DXB from Brunei but it had developed a fault - stuck in departures for 12 hours waiting for a replacement plane to arrive...

I flew with them a few years ago, Perth, Brunei, Dubai. The first leg of the journey was a bit crappola as there were no personal tv's for the kids to watch. Lucky it was really early and the kids were tired so they slept most of the first leg of the flight. Apart from that they were pretty good.

Some OK reviews, some noK reviews. I don't use them due to the 0400ish arrival in DXB http://www.airlinequality.com/Forum/rba.htm
