Hello Melbourne :D

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in RA News

Exit KL/Enter Melbourne

A few weeks ago, I asked myself if it was possible to accept the invitation from Royal Brunei Airlines for the daily flight to Melbourne which was initially scheduled from 25th March. I turned down because I would physically still be in KL/Terengganu for my Tourism Malaysia Mega FAM trip. Then to my delight, Royal Brunei Airlines rescheduled their invitation to the 29th of March which was just perfect because it was the same day I finished my duty in KL/Terengganu.

So I accepted the invitation which only allow me a two and a half hour window (between my arrival from Kuala Lumpur at 9:10am and my departure to Melbourne 11:50am) to check-in and rush home to shower and refreshen up. And it worked!!! Oh I challenging task was that I was only given the notice two weeks prior to Melbourne trip and I had to make arrangement for my Australian Visa which can be only issued in Kuala Lumpur. So my FAM trip was such a great timing and I managed to get my visa approved the day I arrived KL back in 22nd March.

I’m quite excited that I will be flying over to Melbourne a city that I have left 12 years ago during my high school and university years. So I have to say there will be a lot of emotions once I have touched down Melbourne and we will be busy visiting places in Melbourne during our 3 night stay in Melbourne. Thank you Royal Brunei Airlines @royalbruneiair for making this trip possible and congratulations on making Melbourne a daily flight which is another strong sector.

There was a short welcoming speech by Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines, at the Berakas Room, Airport Restaurant. Also present were the Australian High Commissioner to Brunei, Mr. Mark Sawers and CEO of Brunei Tourism Board, Sheikh Jamaluddin. There was also a cake cutting ceremony to commemorate Royal Brunei Airlines’ 1st year anniversary to Melbourne.

Dermot Mannion, Deputy Chairman of Royal Brunei Airlines, – “This is a unique setting opportunity for Royal Brunei Airlines. We have also have been working around the clock as today we have successfully migrated to a new system. It has been a terrific success and we are among the first in Asia to Amedeus system and Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines will follow suit soon.

Hence this shows Royal Brunei Airlines aiming to provide the best technology, the state of the art service/ system to make the experience easy between the travel agents and the customers. This is an indication that Royal Brunei wants to provide high quality service, better quality system. This is the message that we would like to convey in the next couple of days for the customer to experience the peace and tranquility in Brunei Darussalam as well as the service from Royal Brunei Airlines.

I managed to catch with Carol in the wee hours at LCCT, Kuala Lumpur before our departure to Brunei and Singapore respectively. I wish you the best and I shall be seeing you soon in April. Thank you for showing up in my life and take good care of yourself ๐Ÿ˜€

I noticed that I’ve been always been positioned by the wing side. I’m quite happy that @AirAsia flew quite early so I was able to make the flight o @royalbruneiair to Melbourne this morning

The media and the new media were also invited for the Melbourne trip. Thank you Royal Brunei Airlines @royalbruneiair

Half of the SocMed gang is on the same flight. We are definitely missing the rest of the bunch. Thanks for your support guys. Next will be yours ๐Ÿ˜€

We had a quick view of the cockpit and the pilots who will be flying us over to Melbourne

Yay!! My neighbour @AnakBrunei at the middle row. Now I’m missing my neighbour Dj Daffy who sat next to me during our KL/Terengganu trip recently

These guys are another factor for the pleasant and awesome service in Royal Brunei Airlines. Keep it up, guys!!

Too bad my sister Rini couldn’t join us for the flight to Melbourne and it was great seeing you at the airport and thanks for sending us off ๐Ÿ˜€

So many reasons why you should travel in business class and one of them is the dedicated reading light

There are also a few pockets to place your documents or mobile phones and the distance of the screen and the passenger is quite spacious

Another great thing is the food selection and I have to turn down a meal because I’m quite stuffed from eating *lol*

Good course meal I had before my power nap

I love the fact that I can charge my Macbook and iPhone during the 7 hour flight ๐Ÿ˜€

I love the fact that the seat can recline to horizontal
