Get to London for cheap later this year or in the first half of next year with great date availability and a doable two-stop journey each way.

Whilst there are stopovers both in Bandar Seri Begwan (2½ hours) and Dubai (1¾ hours) for a total flying time of just over 27 hours, that is only five hours longer than the shortest routing currently available (via Singapore with Singapore Airlines). Flying time is an hour shorter on the way home.

Royal Brunei only operates 787 Dreamliners on its long-haul routes and A320s on its shorter routes, with all flights on this routing on the Dreamliner.

Compared to, say, Qatar’s Dreamliner seat pitch of 31″, you’ll get 32″ on Royal Brunei, in the same 3-3-3 configuration in Economy Class.
