Just got back from a lovely holiday in Dubai. Here is a review of the airline that I used, in my experience.
Firstly, for Royal Brunei, lets start of with the seats. The seats, in economy are average but arent very big, I found it very hard to get into a comfortable position in the small space given, I was, at a time, so uncomfortable, I had to go for a walk every 20 minutes...
Next, there is the food, im not sure who provides it but I don't care...:) The food on the flight there was a chicken and potato main course, with a side of salad, which, upon looknig around me, no one had consumed. And a desert of whipper cream. The food was all together nice but could have done with some changes, like: No having the salad, a better dessert and they could have served it at a better time too, it was served 2 hours into a 7-8 hour flight. On the return flight, which was a night flight we were served something that resembled a breakfast. I chose (on this flight we were given a choice, unlike the first) the scrambled egg breakfast. The eggs didn't look very appealing to me, but I gave them a try and they weren't "all that". I was also served a salad, which again, upon looking around, no one consumed. And also a croissant which was nice, but plain. And for desert a Strawberry Yoghurt which was good...
Next, there is staff. The cabin crew were kind, pleasant and proffesinal at all times. Whenever I asked them for things they done them, very quickly. The uniform they were is attractive and looks quite modern, it looks tradionally "arabic/asia".
Next, is the amount of luggage that one is allowed to take. The limit is 20kg, for economy per person, which, for cheap tickets like the ones I got, is a very good deal. Supposing there was 4 of us, we were allowed 80kg (I can do maths), although we only needed 2 suitcases, however, one did peak at 21.5kg but we were given the "nod".
The inflight entertainment, in my opinion is a let down. For a non-british/english airline, the english channels/movies supplied was great. However, i looked around me, and 3 tv's of other passengers seats were not functioning propely. The system to get around, e.g: The remote, is a nightmare. The rewind,pause,stop,forward system is really slow...and tedious, I had to rewind one of my movies 3 times because it went back to the beginning for some daft reason.
Overall, fo the 4 of us, for direct flight we paid around £1400, which is a great prioce for such a brilliant airline. The planes, as some say are "old" but they dont seem it, the tvs could do with some sprucing up, as with the sweats, but the experience is good and so is the airline all together.
Not sure if this review was helpful, but I thought I'd give my own personal experience and view of the airline, only because I have asked so much about this holiday on this forum and received so many great answers.
