Weeks and weeks of lies

published

Tried to get refunded in March for cancelled flights , they are trying to take processing fee and oblivious to the fact they can’t honour the flight due to the restrictions of Covid 19 ( yeah!)
Been told done on certain date , told to contact bank , given the runaround .
Still no refund in our account.
You must take matters further with this lot as they are being told from the airline how to handle customers .
The fact that we will never use them again doesn’t cut much I know, as they couldn’t give a toss clearly , but people be warned in a problem they are useless albeit cunning.

Disappointed customer

published

Since covid19 I have contacted Royal Brunei Airlines since the beginning of March for a refund for 4 adults. They have made so many excuses, but I still have no refund. I’m so disappointed with their service and the lack of knowledge and understanding of what’s going on around the globe. Customers should not have to wait 4-6 weeks for a refund, and if that is the case I’ve waited my time, and it’s not a small amount of money. You need a wake up call Royal Brunei.

Not safe

published

I booked a flight to London with Royal Brunei, as they seemed to have good reviews.
But only a few weeks later it was announced that Sharia Law will apply from April 5, not only in Brunei but also on board their aircraft. Being LGBT, I don't want to run the risk of being jailed, or stoned to death. I pulled out of my flight, but my wallet is now $450 lighter as they wouldn't budge on the cancellation fee.
If you care about human rights, don't fly with this airline.

Don't risk it.

Sharia law applies upon this aircraft. Lousy IFE, not safe to be in Brunei if you have alcohol, are LGTBIQ or get mixed up in other so called crimes. Airport in Bandar is really bad. Lounge so basic. Avoid!

WARNING SHARIA LAW ON BOARD

published

Boycott this airline and anything to do with this country, including the hotel chain owned by the sultanate.
Sharia law on board the aircraft even when in another country.
This could mean your death for being misconstrued.

I will never fly again with this airline

published

I have used this airline many times flying from Australia. Unfortunately with the Brunei government's new harsh Sharia Laws I cannot support this airline knowing the proceeds will go to line the pockets of people who introduced such harmful stone age laws!

Boycott this country and their royal airline

published

Forget about flying with this airline. If you are LGBT you can be arrested by them and held in international space just for being, gay, lesbian or trans. These people will stone you to death.

HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSERS

published

Under no circumstance will I, nor should any humane individual, support Brunei in any way following it’s introduced law to stone LGBTQI people to death. This is barbaric and in violation of the human rights of people to live their lives free from harm. I will not ever fly with this airline or support any hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei while this horrific law is in place.

I am shocked that stone age barbarity can continue in the 21St Century.

I am shocked that stone age barbarity can continue in the 21St Century. Don't they have universities over there that explain why people are born gay? It's called science....but ignorance seems to continue the persecution!

Upon check in they will usually oblige and let u seat together. All depends how busy the flight will be for the sector. Good luck!

hello
If I take alcohol on board can I drink it on board? And will ant of it be confiscated in a stopover in Brunei - I'm going to London.
Also, How much alcohol can be taken in check-in luggage please?

Firstly, u cannot get through the gates before boarding. Your bags are checked by border control and if u succeed then air crew could confiscate your alcohol i guess it's a mark of respect.
