I'm not really sure if you are reffering to alcohol as 'drinks', but I do know that Royal Brunei don't serve/have alcohol on particular flights.
Perhaps you could call them up or email them to find out more.
Thanks for that

Royal Brunei do not serve alcoholic drinks in economy in business but they serve a number of juices and soft drinks in economy and also a few mocktails in business.
You can also bring your own alcohol and the crew will provide you with glasses and facilities to open the bottles.
Thanks for that info

If that's true, they'd have to be the only airline that allows pax to consume BYO alcohol.
I wonder what happens if pax gets too inebriated? You cannot stop serving them alcohol since it was never served in the first place!
Also, how do you square the BYO alcohol policy with liquid restrictions for hand luggage?
Is this the reason why flights on Royal Brunei are so cheap?
Lastly, I wonder if they serve alcohol on the Royal Brunei planes that fly the Sultan and his entourage? :p
You can spot these aircraft at LHR at odd times of the day (outside of the normal Royal Brunei schedule) I believe those planes, painted in Royal Brunei colours, are Airbus and not Boeing. I've heard from sources that the Sultan prefers Airbus.

Alex, the answer is here, under Alcohol-free environment policy: http://www.bruneiair.com/australia/travel-info/regulations-passenger-info/
A few years ago I was told inflight by the crew that I could drink carry-on alcohol. Only one problem: I didn't have any!!

I flew from Melbourne to Bangkok in RBA Business Class a few days back. They offered a large selection of juice, soft drink, tea and coffee. It's worth noting that the teas were beautiful and the coffee was pretty awful. Powdered cappuccino - yek!
Knowing RBA is a 'dry airline', I bought a small bottle of red wine and small bottle of scotch for my journey to Brunei. All Cabin staff were more than happy to provide a glass for both the wine (during lunch service) and scotch (while I was watching my movie, after lunch). I left the opened wine and scotch bottles on the plane (rather than take them onto the Brunei -> Thailand leg of my journey) as both Melbourne Duty Free employees and RBA cabin staff advised that the bottles would be confiscated by Brunei security.
I hope this information helps!
