I should never doubt my readers. Last week, I posted the photograph above and asked if anyone could name the airline pictured. One reader guessed correctly: It’s Royal Brunei Airlines.

Royal Brunei is flag carrier airline of the Sultanate of Brunei, based in Bandar Seri Begawan. It has 12 airplanes, including two 787s, and flies to more than 12 destinations, including London, Singapore, Melbourne and Dubai, according to its route map. Wikipedia says Royal Brunei does not serve alcohol on board, but that passengers can bring their own. So that’s interesting.
