Okay 4.6

Pros: Still an affordable choice to fly from Brunei direct to Australia.

Cons: Space between rows is small. When the passenger in front recline the chair, it gets very close to the passenger sitting behind. The TV screen has no angle adjust - problem when the passenger in front recline the chair. Cover for toilet seat does not stay when opened - keep falling on the user. Food was disappointing. Served rather late. Need more enthusiasm in the service. Service as usual cold. They need training in hospitality. They ran out of the health check form - obvious lack of attention (ignorant) in service.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: The cabin crew were very friendly, organised and polite.

Cons: The flight was delayed 20min from the outset as the pilot explained to all onboard that we weren't allowed to land early at Dubai airport. Towards the end of the flight the plane was delayed for over another hour as we circled the gulf waiting to land. This wouldn't have been so inconvenient if the lights were dimmed again as it was 2-3am local time and passengers wanted to sleep.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in AUD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
