ROYAL Brunei does not serve alcohol on its flights from Heathrow to Australia (via Dubai, Singapore and Brunei), but it does offer competitive fares. In October and November, STA Travel (071-937 9962) is selling Royal Brunei flights to Darwin, Perth or Brisbane for pounds 765 return, with a free side trip from Brunei to either Labuan or Miri in Borneo; our travel correspondent believes the latter destination is much the better choice.
